The life of film legend Sir Michael Caine celebrated in a special night at the Royal Albert Hall in aid of the NSPCC.

Presenter and film buff Jonathan Ross interviewed the two-time Oscar winner live on stage as we looked back on his incredible career and enduring popularity, with clips on screens above the stage and music from his best-known films being played live by the London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Gavin Greenaway.
