On this week's show, Howard Goodall takes a look at the great family dynasties that have carved hugely successful careers for themselves in the world of movies. 

Starting off with the Coppola dynasty (pictured) which includes the directors Francis Ford and Sofia Coppola and the actor Nicolas Cage.
