AIR HAVE done a lot to enhance the reputation of French pop music in Britain. Described as a cross between Herbie Hancock and Art Garfunkel, you can expect the fluffiness of the tunes to turn into something much harder and more exciting when they play live, as seen in a recent appearance on Later with Jools Holland.

KICKING OFF the Finborough Theatre's "Discipline" season is a new production of Rodney Ackland's seminal adaptation of Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevsky. The crime is a pointless murder of an old debt-collector, with the murderer seeing his expected punishment as a barometer of his own guilt and the debt-collector's worth. Last seen 60 years ago, Ackland skilfully transfers Dostoyevsky's stream-of-consciousness narrative to the stage, fully realising the books' complex exploration of morality.
