We speak to British Cinema's leading lights at the BFI Luminous Gala

Held at the Guildhall, on the eve of the opening of the London Film Festival, the event was to raise money to secure the future of the BFI National Archive - the UK's collection of film and TV.

Guests including Sir John Hurt, Guy Ritchie, Anna Friel and Julian Fellowes helped to raise over £430,000 for the Film is Fragile campaign. London Live spoke to a number of the guests including Tom Hiddleston, Terry Gilliam and Peter Kosminsky about why they felt it was important to be there.

Meanwhile Geena Davis spoke to us about her London Film Festival symposium on gender in the media.
