To reference the great man himself, some people say Mel Brooks is in bad taste – I say, “Up yours!”

The 91-year-old comedian and director talks to Alan Yentob about his latest work, a stage adaptation of his classic horror spoof Young Frankenstein, performed in the West End starring Ross Noble and Lesley Joseph. There is also a look back at Brooks’s career using interviews spanning decades.

Imagine… Mel Brooks: Unwrapped is on BBC Two at 22.00.
