The Letters of Sylvia Plath, April 1956 to October 1956

Sylvia Plath's renown as one of the twentieth century's most influential poets is beyond dispute, but she was also one of its most captivating correspondents. This radio selection, is abridged by Caitlin Crawford from the remarkable, collected edition of Plath's letters published last week. Edited by Peter K Steinberg and Karen Kukil , it is a work of immense scholarship and care, presenting a comprehensive and historically accurate text of the known and extant letters that she wrote to over one hundred and twenty correspondents, including her husband the poet Ted Hughes, to whom previously unseen letters are now revealed. The programmes offer us a generous insight into the life of one of our most significant poets. Known primarily for her poetry, Plath also wrote a semi-autobiographical novel, The Bell Jar, under the pseudonym Victoria Lucas. The book's protagonist, Esther Greenwood, is a bright, ambitious student at Smith College who begins to experience a mental breakdown while interning for a fashion magazine in New York. The plot parallels Plath's experience interning at Mademoiselle magazine and subsequent mental breakdown and suicide attempt.

Despite her remarkable artistic, academic, and social success at Smith, Plath suffered from severe depression and underwent a period of psychiatric hospitalization. She graduated from Smith with highest honours in 1955 and went on to Newnham College, Cambridge, in England, on a Fulbright fellowship. Here she met and married the English poet Ted Hughes in 1956. For the following two years she was an instructor in English at Smith College.

SAT 15:30 Passing Dreams (b095rbtc)

A portrait of singer, songwriter and truck driver Will Beeley.

The myth of the road is deeply rooted in America - it's the thing that delivers escape, promises freedom, fuels new hopes and, once upon a time at least, thoughts of a new nation. And it provides its own opening onto the vastness and variety of the country today.

The distances can be dizzying. And these days Will Beeley spends more time on the road than he does at home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a city in the desert, with Route 66 running through its heart.

In another life Will Beeley was a musician - a singer and songwriter - an anxious romantic at the end of the 1960s and a smooth-voiced folkie ten years later. He played gig after gig, made records and, for a while at least, hoped for the big time.

But now, like a different road taken, a different stop along the way, he spends his life behind the wheel of a hulking truck, sharing the driving with his wife, as the highway and the days blur by.

It's a unique vantage point. And as America spools past outside, framed by the huge windscreen, does he - like all of us now and then - think of times gone by, of unfinished business, of what might have been? Or is his attention fixed ahead on the road as it rolls towards him, flowing beneath his wheels?

Producer: Martin Williams.

Travels in North Korea

Last year approximately 4,000 tourists from the West travel to the DPRK, this year there may be fewer, although tourist and business people are still entering the country.
So why do people visit?

Despite its reputation as a closed country - the 'hermit kingdom' - there has been an increasing interest in travel to North Korea over the past decade, both for tourists and business. So what do people experience there, and how do they feel when they hear the current high-voltage exchanges of threats from either side of the Pacific.

As the language of war is racheted up, Sara Jane Hall takes time to speak to those who have visited for a variety of reason, using a surprisingly rich vein of programmes recorded from within the DPRK, from the BBC archives. From the tour leaders guiding tourists through the museums, schools and parks, to a visit to the DMZ, from the 'other side', what do those who visited in the past now make of their time there? Have their views changed?

Some of the questions Sara Jane will explore include, what was the experience of being in a country so controlled you are rarely allowed to travel without a guide being present at all times? How does it feel to be unable to freely discuss your impressions for fear of putting your guide at serious risk of punishment?
Were you able to have any meaningful relationships with the Koreans and was there a sense of connection? Why did you even go?

In 1867 Mark Twain wrote "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow mindedness," but if you are unable to speak, move or act freely, how are your impressions of a country such as the DPRK formed. Sara Jane will also hear from business travelers, who have experienced negotiations with the authorities, and to refugees, who have seen Westerners in Pyongyang. How do they regard the occasional visitors, who stand out, due to their wide variety of clothing, as much as their features? Did it make tthem curious or angry?

There will also be a lot of surprises for the listener who has only a narrow picture of this country - which will humanise a little understood country.

Presented and produced by Sara Jane Hall, who has visited the DPRK twice, to record two documentaries for BBC Radio 4.

Strangely, Lila also finds herself also pregnant and this unites their friendship once more. Lila however seems to suffer during her pregnancy - not helped by the chaos caused by the earthquake that hit Naples in 1980. Gradually she seems to lose touch with her world once again.

SAT 22:15 Moral Maze (b097c1g3)
50 Years of the Abortion Act

The Moral Maze returns with a special programme marking 50 years of the Abortion Act, recorded in front of an audience of students at UCL Faculty of Laws. Under the 1967 law, terminations were made legal for the first time in limited circumstances, with the agreement of two doctors. In practice this has meant that it has not usually been difficult to get an abortion in the first 6 months of pregnancy. The technology has changed: the threshold at which a baby has a good chance of surviving outside the womb has decreased, so at 23 weeks' gestation, one foetus might be aborted while another is put in intensive care. Social attitudes have changed and many doctors now support the official line of the British Medical Association which wants abortion to be decriminalised completely. So is it time for abortion to be treated like any other medical procedure that is regulated by the General Medical Council? On the other side of the dispute are those who say the Act has been too liberally interpreted. With nearly 200,000 abortions a year in the UK, they say we effectively have 'abortion on demand' and they want the law to be tightened to protect the rights of 'pre-born children' and their mothers. Whatever the details of time-limits and interpretation of the law, the moral dividing line remains as deeply-etched as it was in 1967: it is between those who think a human life starts at conception and those who don't.

The Moral Maze has teamed up with Dundee University's Centre for Argument Technology. For the first time, researchers will analyse the debate and use the data to create an interactive web page called "Test your argument", hosted by the BBC's experimental site "Taster" and available via the Radio 4 website after the broadcast.

SAT 23:30 Dads and Daughters (b0978860)

The relationship between fathers and daughters has been the subject of countless cultural explorations down the centuries, from Elektra's distress to Bonjour Tristesse. Some of them are idealised ('To Kill A Mockingbird', 'All the Lights We Cannot See'); some highly damaging and dysfunctional ('This is England', 'The Beggar's Opera'); some, as any A'Level pupil who's studied 'King Lear' can attest, are both. What is clear in all these cases is just how particular and powerful the relationship can be, and in this highly personal programme Lauren Laverne heads home to team up with her own dad, Les, to talk about their relationship and how it matches up with some of these cultural imaginings. Among anecdotes about growing up in Sunderland and later on Les playing roadie to Lauren's gigs with the likes of the Ramones, we also hear from artists who in one way or another are engaging with the dad/daughter relationship now, including Helen MacDonald, Glyn Maxwell and The Unthanks.

Presenter: Lauren Laverne

SUN 13:30 My Father's Israel (b098gp5q)

How a bitter dispute over Israel's future split a country and divided a family. In June 1967, Israel had just won the Six Day War, defeating the armies of Egypt, Jordan and Syria, and occupying much new territory. Israelis sensed a transformation in their country's destiny. Most were euphoric. A few were fearful. Two declarations drawn up in neighbouring Tel Aviv cafes and published on the same day symbolised this bitter divide.

One, now seen as hugely significant in shaping Israeli history, declared that 'The Land of Israel is now in the hands of the Jewish people'. It was signed by more than fifty members of the country's leading cultural and political elites. It encouraged the wave of settlements that would arise in the territories which Israel had recently occupied. The other declaration, concocted by two friends over an espresso, warned that the Israeli victory was a 'fateful' moment, and that holding onto occupied territories 'will make us a nation of murderers and murdered'. It was signed by just 12 people.

These heretical views, published in a leading daily newspaper, prompted intense criticism and its signatories were called traitors to the Zionist cause. Some received threats of violence, amongst them Shimon Tzabar, who was one of the authors. In this programme, his son Rami explores what this moment of dramatic change meant for Israel, and for his family. He travels to Tel Aviv and talks to those involved in making the two declarations, as they recall the extraordinary atmosphere surrounding them.

This is also a personal story, as Rami discovers the consequences of his father's passionate actions. After ostracism in Israel, his father went into exile in London (where Rami was born), and continued his campaigns with weapons of art, satire and unshakeable faith in his cause. The cost for the family was high.

Arguments still rage today about Israel's actions and destiny - an argument within Israeli society, within the international community and among individuals. This programme reveals, in one dramatic story, the roots of that argument, and how it reverberated so strongly across a family's life.

Producers: Rami Tzabar and Chris Bowlby
Editor: Hugh Levinson.

Omnibus - Abused in Childhood

Fi Glover introduces conversations about surviving physical abuse in care and sexual abuse in the family in the Omnibus edition of the series that proves it's surprising what you hear when you listen.

The Listening Project is a Radio 4 initiative that offers a snapshot of contemporary Britain in which people across the UK volunteer to have a conversation with someone close to them about a subject they've never discussed intimately before. The conversations are being gathered across the UK by teams of producers from local and national radio stations who facilitate each encounter. Every conversation - they're not BBC interviews, and that's an important difference - lasts up to an hour, and is then edited to extract the key moment of connection between the participants. Most of the unedited conversations are being archived by the British Library and used to build up a collection of voices capturing a unique portrait of the UK in the second decade of the millennium.

Lila's world will never be the same and, despite Lena's attempts to help her friend try to come to terms with her loss, their past comes back to haunt them and one of them finally decides that there is only one way forward.

Does this free the other or hold her prisoner to her past forever?

Omar El Akkad

Omar El Akkad's debut novel American War has won rave reviews in the states. In it he imagines a future America where the country has been ravaged by climate change and a second Civil War breaks out over fossil fuels. He talks to Mariella Frostrup about his dystopian vision.

Also on the programme, Icelandic writer Sjon, and Ted Hodgkinson discuss their new anthology of short stories from the Nordic region, and best selling writer novelist Elizabeth Kostova reveals the book she'd never lend.


SUN 16:30 Lines of Resistance (b098h0f3)

Writer and poet Bridget Minamore explores how women - particularly women of colour - have pushed back against the poetry establishment to create their own literary narratives.

Poetry as an escape from oppression and as a way to amplify the voices of the overlooked is nothing new. But, so often, resistance writers are male.

How have women in general and women of colour resisted dominant narratives in poetry? And how have they challenged those established voices of dissent to create their own literary spaces for resistance?

The themes explored in the programme range from 21st-century Peckham to ancient Iraq and the slave plantations of the Caribbean, as Bridget goes on a journey to uncover the lines of resistance followed by women throughout history. She talks both to established writers and teenage poets struggling to make their mark.

At the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton, south London, poet Malika Booker tells Bridget, "Story is in our DNA". The women of the Octavia poetry collective explain how the internet both helps and hinders the process of creative resistance. With the help of Arabic literature specialist Dr Marlé Hammond and British-Egyptian writer Sabrina Mahfouz, Bridget draws links from Muslim women writing in 11th-century Spain to how Muslim women write in Britain today.

And in a surprising exchange with history professor Eleanor Robson, Bridget discovers that a writer of poetry from 4,000 years ago, long cherished by contemporary feminists, isn't all that she seems to be.

With poems by Sarah Lasoye, Warsan Shire, Malika Booker, Enheduana, Wallada bint al-Mustakfi, Seema Begum and Bridget Minamore herself.

In the third in Jon McGregor's 15-part short story series set in the Peak District, a 13-year-old girl has gone missing on the moors. Now, as the search for the girl gears up, the local newspaper boy joins the hunt for clues.

The fifteen stories of The Reservoir Tapes each stand alone but together build a compelling portrait of a community rocked by tragedy, as they explore events that precede and follow the disappearance the teenage girl. A prequel to Jon McGregor's critically acclaimed Man Booker long-listed novel Reservoir 13, these stories and their different perspectives offer tantalizing glimpses as to what might have happened to Becky.

SUN 20:00 Feedback (b097cjzx)

The Editor of PM defends his programme against listeners' accusations that presenter Eddie Mair's interview with Home Secretary Amber Rudd was hostile and biased. Roger Sawyer discusses the presenter's robust style of interviewing and sets out his editorial stance on the presentation of this and other items on the programme.

When Amber Rudd sought to bring the focus of the interview back to the policy announcements made by the Prime Minister at the Party Conference, listeners expressed their frustration with Eddie Mair's questioning. We speak to those who suggest that the presenter didn't allow for an informed discussion of the Conservative Party's policies, but focused instead on the Prime Minister's misfortunes, most notably her well-documented cough. Roger Sawyer explains these editorial decisions and discusses the sanctioning of coverage such as the use of gunfire on the recent Las Vegas shooting item.

And we hear from one listener dissatisfied with Winifred Robinson's latest programme on home education, 'Out of School, Out of Sight'. Fee Berry speaks to Roger Bolton about her view that the programme should have been more carefully balanced.

Also, listeners discuss their reactions to Feedback's interview last week with the new Editor of the Today programme, Sarah Sands and we hear from those involved in the introduction of the BBC World Service's new Pidgin English programming.

What would war with North Korea look like?

What could spark a major conflict on the world's most sensitive front line, and just how devastating would it be? Alarm about North Korea has spiked. It claims to have successfully test-launched an intercontinental ballistic missile that could hit Alaska. Some experts estimate that North Korea is now 18 to 36 months away from launching a missile able to reach Los Angeles. President Trump has threatened to "totally destroy" the country, in an exchange of increasingly belligerent messages from both sides. Neal Razzell takes a look at the two sides' war plans and asks: what would war with North Korea look like?

The author of Atonement and On Chesil Beach reveals why he prefers to leave film-makers to do what they want with his novels and why the worst thing is to become the bad conscience of a film set, drifting around, saying "that's not what I meant". And why as an author you're treated as a god, but as a screenwriter you're treated like the cleaning lady.

The End of War?

War became illegal in 1928 with the Paris Peace Pact that created a new world order, according to the lawyer and academic Oona Hathaway. She tells Andrew Marr how this pivotal moment launched a new international system in which sanctions replaced gunboat diplomacy. Although inter-state wars have fallen since World War Two, intra-state conflicts have risen: Elisabeth Kendall explains the dire situation of one of the Arab's poorest countries, Yemen. The Norwegian ambassador to the UK Mona Juul talks about the art of international diplomacy. She played a key role in the secret talks which led to the Oslo Accords in the 1990s - the first ever agreement between Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organisation.

Ten Days That Shook the World, The Revolutionary Front

John Reed's classic eye-witness account of the Russian Revolution in October 1917.
Dramatised by Robin Brooks

Episode 6: The Revolutionary Front
Kerensky and the counter-revolutionary Cossacks are making gains and threatening Petrograd. Reed visits the Revolutionary frontline with the Bolshevik commander-in-chief - who seems less than organised.

Director Alison Hindell
BBC Cymru Wales production

John Reed's vivid eye-witness account of his time in Petrograd was written in early 1918 and published in the USA the following year. It was an instant best-seller, so much so that in Russia it was some years before Stalin - who is only mentioned twice in the book - felt he could ban it for its portrayal of Trotsky. Possibly naïve, definitely politically one-sided, nevertheless the veracity and impact of Reed's enthusiastic snapshot-style reportage has become a classic memoir and inspired films including Eisenstein's classic 'October' and 'Reds' which won an Oscar for its director and star, Warren Beatty.

MON 11:00 Toynbee at War (b098h70m)

Polly Toynbee examines how war profoundly informed the vision of her grandfather, the renowned historian Arnold J Toynbee. His generation were slaughtered on the Flanders fields but Toynbee's life took him on a different path. 'History is as melancholy as war itself' wrote Toynbee as he rose to become one of the 20th century's most popular historians & public intellectual. Yet real loss, from the fallout of war & troubled peace , began to inexorably shape his understanding and writing of history
Classics texts such as his vast, multi-volume best-seller A Study of History are rooted in his life and work from the outbreak of the Great War to the rise of fascism.

Haunted by the idea that he outlived so many of his generation who fell in battle, Toynbee became an important part in the Great War propaganda machine , an eyewitness to the fraught Peace Conference at Versailles & a war journalist in the troubled peace that followed. He would become a central figure in the new discipline of international relations and the founding of Chatham House as he rose to become a public intellectual. But as war loomed yet again, and after a personal audience with Hitler, Toynbee could not escape the shadow of human helplessness in the face of traumatic events surrounding him both professionally and privately. 'One is like a beetle under a steamroller' he wrote. Many of today's leading historians dismiss Toynbee's great 10 volume work as deeply flawed & riddled with mysticism and few now understand the events that deeply shaped his life. Polly Toynbee explores the events that haunted and shaped his work & life.

Series 1, Management Consulting

If managers often have a bad reputation, what should we make of the people who tell managers how to manage? That question has often been raised over the years, with a sceptical tone. The management consultancy industry battles a stereotype of charging exorbitant fees for advice that, on close inspection, turns out to be either meaningless or common sense. Managers who bring in consultants are often accused of being blinded by jargon, implicitly admitting their own incompetence, or seeking someone else to blame for unpopular decisions. Still, it's lucrative. Globally, consulting firms charge their clients a total of about $125bn.

MON 16:00 Martin Morales' Peruvian Road Trip (b098h9dl)

Peruvian-born chef and record producer Martin Morales heads back to his homeland to explore the inherent link between food and music in Andean culture.

For the first part of his trip, Martin is accompanied by his 10 year old son and budding radio producer Felix, 8 year old daughter Tilly and his wife Lucy. He shows them round his family's favourite haunts - from the famous La Chomba restaurant in Cusco where musicians queue up to serenade the diners, to the tiny village of Lamay where they dine on the local delicacy of guinea pig on a stick.

At the Centre for Native Arts in Cusco, food and music come together with a dance about the Oca potato. Providing the soundtrack to the dance is a musician Martin once worked with in his early career, the legendary violinist Reynaldo Pillco.

Along the way, Martin meets up with a recent musical discovery of his, singer Sylvia Falcon, who enchants him with a song highlighting the importance of the Coca leaf in Peruvian cuisine and culture.

Leaving the family holiday behind, Martin continues his journey with his chef's hat on, exploring the food and culture of the Andes - including local delicacies such as the freshest trout roe he's ever tasted.

Martin describes his joy at exploring the traditional picanterias (family-run restaurants) of the Andes as being akin to his joy at discovering a new band. For this former music executive, the roots of Andean culture run deep, where music and food are firmly intertwined. On every step of the journey, Martin is drenched in the music of the Andes - twanging guitars, wood flutes, and even the odd harp provide the soundtrack to mealtimes.

MON 20:00 The British Road to Bolshevism (b098ht02)

In the two decades prior to the Russian Revolution in 1917, Vladimir Lenin and other prominent Russian political exiles spent periods of time in London - using the unique research resources of the British Museum, writing revolutionary pamphlets and journals, organising the smuggling of protest literature back to their home country, arguing fiercely with each other over ideological disputes and the practicalities of the struggle, as well as enjoying visits to pubs, the music hall and Speakers' Corner.

The British authorities showed greater tolerance of the emigres and their insurrectionary activities than did many other European countries, and some major revolutionary party conferences were held in London. This included the crucial 1903 congress, where the party split into the two factions of Bolsheviks (the 'hards') and Mensheviks (the 'softs') - a split with huge repercussions for the revolution and the course of Russian history.

In this programme Martin Rosenbaum explores how events in London played a role in leading up to the Russian Revolution.

Wild Words

The writer Robert Macfarlane (author of Landmarks, The Old Ways, The Wild Places and Mountains of the Mind) believes that the language we use to talk about nature is itself at risk of becoming an endangered species. A 2016 research paper by Cambridge University conservationists found that eight-to 11-year-old schoolchildren were 'substantially better' at identifying common Pokemon characters than common species of British wildlife.

Over the past 10 years, Macfarlane has been gathering a 'word-hoard' of thousands of terms for nature, landscape and weather, in the hope of preserving, enriching and diversifying our language for the living world. He shares some of his favourites with Michael Rosen and Dr Laura Wright and talks about why its so important to celebrate the language we use to talk about the natural world.

Tim Birkhead on bird promiscuity

Professor Tim Birkhead talks to Jim Al Khalili about his 40 years of research on promiscuity in birds, his love of Skomer Island and its guillemots, and the extraordinary musical talent of the male bullfinch.

Tim Birkhead is an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist at the University of Sheffield. The primary focus of his research has been reproduction in birds. He pioneered the study of promiscuity or extra-pair mating in birds, and one of its evolutionary consequences - sperm competition.

In the early 1970s Tim questioned and then exploded the assumption that female birds were always sexually monogamous - a zoological dogma originating with Charles Darwin. Tim first explored this in the guillemot colony on Skomer Island in Wales: a population of seabirds which he has studied continuously for more than 40 years in the cause of both evolutionary insights and conservation. Tim talks with passion about an ongoing funding crisis that hit this research programme recently and how the public response to it has been the most inspiring event in his career.

A side branch of Tim's research includes the jaw-dropping musical mimicry of the male bullfinch. The programme includes a recording of a captive bird whistling a German folk tune with super-human skill.

ADVISORY! There is a longer version of the conversation in the podcast of this edition. In this edit, Tim talks about the truly weird false penis of the male red-billed buffalo weaver: an extreme evolutionary product of sperm competition in this species and what amounts to an avian tickling stick. Tim also addresses the controversial topic of sperm competition in humans and the myth of 'kamikaze sperm'.

He's been fascinated all his life by half siblings. And now, in One to One, he has the chance to meet three people who tell him their personal stories.

Here he meets 'Pip' (not her real name) whose life has been changed by her half sibling.

The producer is Perminder Khatkar.

Ten Days That Shook the World, Counter-Revolution

John Reed's classic eye-witness account of the Russian Revolution in October 1917.
Dramatised by Robin Brooks

Episode 7: Counter-Revolution
Bryant is caught up in a vicious street battle and witnesses the bloody violence of the Revolution at close quarters. Counter-revolutionary government troops holding the telephone exchange are captured by Bolshevik sailors - who then have to learn to man the switchboards. Dramatised by Robin Brooks.

Director Alison Hindell
BBC Cymru Wales production

John Reed's vivid eye-witness account of his time in Petrograd was written in early 1918 and published in the USA the following year. It was an instant best-seller, so much so that in Russia it was some years before Stalin - who is only mentioned twice in the book - felt he could ban it for its portrayal of Trotsky. Possibly naïve, definitely politically one-sided, nevertheless the veracity and impact of Reed's enthusiastic snapshot-style reportage has become a classic memoir and inspired films including Eisenstein's classic 'October' and 'Reds' which won an Oscar for its director and star, Warren Beatty.

How to Be Champion, I Don't Want Kids

Part-autobiography, part-self-help book, Sarah Millican's memoir is a funny, honest and sometimes outrageous account of how she went from being a quiet, bookish child to becoming one of Britain's most successful and best-loved stand-up comedians.

An astute observer of the ways in which society constrains and judges women, in this episode Sarah describes people's reactions (ranging from disbelief to outright shock) when she tells them that she doesn't like kids - and has never wanted to have children of her own.

TUE 11:30 Planks and a Passion (b098j5lf)

There's a saying that all you need for a theatre is 'two planks and a passion'. Across the country, Britain's theatrical heritage is both literary and architectural.

This autumn two men's enthusiasm brings London the biggest - some say the riskiest - new-built commercial theatre to open in the capital for over 50 years. Sir Nicholas Hytner ran the National Theatre for a dozen years, which saw many of its biggest triumphs including War Horse and One Man Two Guvnors. Together with his former chief executive and friend Nick Starr, he hatched the idea of a new unsubsidised house, free from the splendid but frustrating physical limits of the Victorian and Edwardian theatres of the West End. They would run an ambitious 900-seater in a new building in the shadow of Tower Bridge, and ensure that it could accommodate every shape and style of play and performance.

Over the last year Libby Purves, theatre critic and broadcaster, has followed the project from the original discussions to its opening next month with a new play by Richard Bean. It took her to a field in Norfolk where local builders and engineers made uniquely designed steel balconies. She visited a soundproof state-of-the-art studio where acoustician Paul Gillieron demonstrated how digital technology enabled the two Nicks, months ahead, to listen from every corner of their virtual space.

We hear from architect Steve Tompkins, winner of the Stirling Prize for the Liverpool Everyman, who reveals how the creation of a theatre has to combine engineering with emotional empathy, and explore the work in progress with its creators as they consider everything from dressing-room corridors to stage machinery, and discuss how even the foyer should help build a sense of occasion and community before the play even begins.

Series 1, Property Register

Ensuring property rights for the world's poor could unlock trillions in 'dead capital'. According to Peruvian economist Hernando de Soto, the value of extralegal property globally exceeds 10 trillion dollars. Nobody has ever disputed that property rights matter for investment: experts point to a direct correlation between a nation's wealth and having an adequate property rights system. This is because real estate is a form of capital and capital raises economic productivity and thus creates wealth. Mr de Soto's understanding - that title frees up credit, turning 'dead capital' into 'live capital' - has prompted governments in other countries to undertake large-scale property-titling campaigns.

Where Does Our Waste Go?

Where do the contents of our bins end up? Tom Heap lifts the lid on the recycling industry to find out what happens to our waste beyond the kerbside collection.

What does 'recycling' mean? Are bottles and tins and plastic packaging recycled when they're collected from our homes? They might well be taken to the local MRF (Materials Recovery Facility) and separated out into different waste streams, but what happens then? Embarking on a road journey along the recycling chain, Tom Heap tracks his own domestic recycling refuse to find out how much - or how little - of it is actually recycled.

Tom is accompanied on this road trip by waste expert Dr Karl Williams of the University of Central Lancashire's Centre for Waste Management, during which he devises what we're calling Karl's Top Ten Recycling Tips.

1 It's not waste you're throwing away, it's a resource.
2 Recycling starts at home.
3 Read your local authority's recycling guide or visit their website as to what they collect, and do as it says.
4 Sort your recycling at source which is at your home.
5 If in doubt, put it in the residual bin or black bag, don't put it in with the recycling!
6 Where you can, separate different materials, (eg: take cardboard wrapping off plastic cartons, plastic film from paper).
7 Don't put your recycling in bags in the bin.
8 Household waste recycling centres will take those recyclables not collected at the kerbside by your council.
9 Where possible, separate glass from paper.
10 Remember you are giving materials the chance of a second life as something else.

Police Protection? The Murder of Kevin Nunes

Fifteen years ago, promising young footballer Kevin Nunes was shot dead on a country lane in Staffordshire. Five men were convicted of his killing, and jailed for life. But just four years later, their convictions were quashed, following concerns about the way police handled a key prosecution witness.

The Court of Appeal Judge said it appeared to be "a serious perversion of the course of justice," and an investigation was launched into misconduct claims against four of the UK's most senior officers.

Now, as the report into the police investigation is finally released, File on 4 speaks to those at the centre of the saga. Will the family of Kevin Nunes will ever get the justice they seek, and what does the case tell us about police transparency and accountability?

Series 1, Low Life

A three part series about the connection between risk and creativity, narrated by the actor Noma Dumezweni.

For the painter Lucian Freud, every brush stroke was a risk. He led a dangerous and precarious existence. How did this contribute to the production of some of greatest figurative art of the 20th century?

Freud placed staggering and catastrophic bets on horses throughout his life, often losing hundreds of thousands of pounds. He explored Soho after dark with fellow painter Francis Bacon and he had brushes with gangsters. Seemingly these activities "emptied" Freud and were a necessary preparation for work in the studio.

David Dawson, Freud's assistant from the 1990s until his death, says, "He would gamble away until he had nothing left and that somehow freed him up to then start painting again."

In the studio, Freud's approach to life was at its most intense. Spending months on paintings, it was always a slow, sometimes tortuous process and sitters knew there was a real possibility that their portrait might never be finished.

But for decades Freud's career was in the doldrums. His fleshy portraits were deemed unfashionable by the art world. James Kirkman, his dealer at this period, says, "I remember working at the Marlborough Gallery in the 60s, which represented Lucian. Lucian was definitely the most unpopular of the artists."

Featuring the art critic Martin Gayford, Freud's former partner Jacquetta Eliot and "the Gentleman's Bookmaker", Victor Chandler.

So Lucian Freud, the skin red around the white of the
White English skin, truth no lies, low life.

The same basic idea links every welfare state: that the ultimate responsibility for ensuring people don't starve on the street should lie not with family, or charity, or private insurers, but with government. This idea is not without its enemies. It is possible, after all, to mother too much. Every parent instinctively knows that there's a balance: protect, but don't mollycoddle; nurture resilience, not dependence. And if overprotective parenting stunts personal growth, might too-generous welfare states stunt economic growth?

And, from that first time around the park, throwing up and thinking he'd never go further, Gwyn slowly began to overcome his demons. Now he's reached the hardest race of them all... 150 miles across the Sahara, in scorching temperatures. But the greatest challenge in the desert... is himself

Jeremy Hylton Davies is a regular writer on BBC One's Doctors. One Horizon is his first play for radio.

Series 1, Childhood

Andy Hamilton is a familiar and much-loved voice on Radio 4. Now for the first time on the network, he presents a collection of observations and reminiscences about both his personal life and his 40 years working in comedy.

Over this 4 part series, Andy looks at Childhood, Politics, The Human Body and Animals. Using comic observation and personal anecdotes he will explore each theme, examining how much (or how little) things have changed in the 60ish years he's been on this planet. Each programme will provide 30 minutes of thoughtful, social history, but packed with laughs.

In this first episode Andy looks at something we've all had: a childhood. From his favourite childhood sounds of the ice-cream van and the roar of the Stamford Bridge, to his own memories of being an overcautious and yet inattentive parent.

Andy was born in Fulham in 1954, read English at Cambridge and then in 1976 began writing comedy for BBC radio, on programmes like Week Ending and The News Huddlines. In 1990, he and Guy Jenkin created Drop the Dead Donkey for Channel 4. Andy has spent much of his working life making acute observations about politics and family life. In 2007, again with Guy Jenkin, he created the massive TV hit, Outnumbered, which celebrated the chaos of life with young children. More recently they created the highly topical Ballot Monkeys and Power Monkeys for Channel 4, which charted the absurdities of the General Election and then the EU Referendum. For over 20 years he has been playing the part of Satan in his R4 sitcom, Old Harry's Game. Andy is also a popular panellist on shows such as The News Quiz and Have I Got News For You.

The Congress of Vienna

Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the conference convened by the victorious powers of the Napoleonic Wars and the earlier French Revolutionary Wars, which had devastated so much of Europe over the last 25 years. The powers aimed to create a long lasting peace, partly by redrawing the map to restore old boundaries and partly by balancing the powers so that none would risk war again. It has since been seen as a very conservative outcome, reasserting the old monarchical and imperial orders over the growth of liberalism and national independence movements, and yet also largely successful in its goal of preventing war in Europe on such a scale for another 100 years. Delegates to Vienna were entertained at night with lavish balls, and the image above is from a French cartoon showing Russia, Prussia, and Austria dancing to the bidding of Castlereagh, the British delegate.

It was an instant best-seller, so much so that in Russia it was some years before Stalin - who is only mentioned twice in the book - felt he could ban it for its portrayal of Trotsky. Possibly naïve, definitely politically one-sided, nevertheless the veracity and impact of Reed's enthusiastic snapshot-style reportage has become a classic memoir and inspired films including Eisenstein's classic 'October' and 'Reds' which won an Oscar for its director and star, Warren Beatty.

How to Be Champion, I've Had Proper Jobs

Sarah Millican reads from her new memoir, which is part-autobiography, part-self-help book.

How did Momtaza Mehri go from net savvy 6th former to successful millennial poet?

A house belonging to her grandmother is the closest poet Momtaza Mehri has ever come to having a permanent home. Aside from summer months in London, Momtaza's family picked its way across the Middle East.

"Then I just realise, I'm having this typical Somali experience where we're literally going to the places that would be considered the bad 'hoods."

Across a sea, another gulf, was the country her parents no longer called home.

Talking with her mother, Momtaza revisits the childhood experiences that shaped her outlook and her coming of age as a millennial poet.

Poetry extracts are taken from:
I believe in the transformative power of cocoa butter and breakfast cereal in the afternoon
Manifesto for those carrying dusk under their eyes
The Sag
Shan
Wink Wink
November 1997

"The internet just switched up the entire game," Momtaza says.

THU 12:04 50 Things That Made the Modern Economy (b098n8zd)
Series 1, Cold Chain

The global supply chain that keeps perishable goods at controlled temperatures has revolutionised the food industry. It widened our choice of food and improved our nutrition. It enabled the rise of the supermarket. And that, in turn, transformed the labour market: less need for frequent shopping frees up women to work. As low-income countries get wealthier, fridges are among the first things people buy: in China, it took just a decade to get from a quarter of households having fridges to nearly nine in ten.

They are accompanied by Buddy, a Border Terrier cross Jack Russell who has been with them for every step of the way. They women call themselves The Fast Girls Walking Group on account of the brisk pace they like to keep, so Clare will not be dawdling as they explain to her their love of their home town and why they believe The Potteries are wrongly overlooked as a great walking area.

Mutatis Mutandis

Batman was an orphan; Lisbeth Salander, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, was an orphan; Superman was an orphan and a foundling. Cinderella was a foster child. Darth Vader - well, they can't all be winners. Lemn Sissay returns to BBC Radio 4with a comic and poetic look at the treatment of children raised in care, orphans and foster children in popular culture, comparing them with reality. Because it surely says something about how we view them that we create so many for fiction.

Lemn will explore the gap between fiction and reality, based on his own experiences of growing up in care as well as those of some special guests.

2. MUTATIS MUTANDIS

In this second episode, Lemn looks at the children at Charles Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, otherwise known as The X-Men Academy; specifically, Rogue and Wolverine, whose dark and tragic origins lie long before either of them reached the School. But there, Xavier - Professor X - sought to teach the children how to control their powers and make the most of them. Lemn's experiences in children's homes in Wigan was not the same. What difference would it have made it it had been?

Lemn also talks to comedian and care leaver Sophie Willan, who spent most of her childhood in foster care and assisted accommodation. What superpowers did she discover she had, removed from the security of family?

Ten Days That Shook the World, The Conquest of Power

John Reed's classic eye-witness account of the Russian Revolution in October 1917.
Dramatised by Robin Brooks

Episode 10: The Conquest of Power
The Bolsheviks have defeated the counter-revolution and are getting on with the business of government despite the threat of civil war. The abolition of all private ownership of land has won over the peasants and, for a moment, the Revolution seems to have accomplished its goals.

The Internationale is sung by Eiry Thomas

Director Alison Hindell

John Reed's vivid eye-witness account of his time in Petrograd was written in early 1918 and published in the USA the following year.

FRI 11:00 When Britain Invaded Russia (b098nlcm)

Lucy Ash tells the story of a little-known brutal war that took place a century ago along the frozen rivers of the Russian Arctic, transforming Russia's relations with the West for decades to come. After the October Revolution, thousands of foreign troops under British command fought Russians on Russian soil for over 18 months. Swamps and forests around Archangel are still littered with grenades and fragments of shells. On Mudyug, an island in the White Sea, Lucy visits the remains of a concentration camp where the Allies locked up potential troublemakers. British soldiers stayed on long past the Armistice with no clear idea of their mission. Were they there to defend against German attacks or were they on a crusade which Winston Churchill hoped would "strangle at birth the Bolshevik State"? In the programme Lucy Ash meets the 93-year-old son of General Edmund Ironside, who wrote at the time that he was in charge of "a tiny army of not very first class troops" stranded in the icy vastness of Russia "in the midst of a bitter civil war".
Producer: Natalia Golysheva.


FRI 11:30 Big Problems with Helen Keen (b098nlcz)

This week's Big Problem with Helen Keen is; Food

Natural resources are dwindling so how can we make sure everyone is fed? How has our food shopping and food production changed? Can science help? Will the future be meals in a pill? But, most importantly, what will Helen have for her tea?

As humanity faces a very big raft of very varied problems, many of them of its own making, here is a series of optimistic, scientifically literate yet comically nimble shows that offer a sweeping overview of the biggest challenges we face and the science behind them. We look at the often surprising solutions of past generations and the likely and unlikely solutions of the future and present a scrupulously researched comedy celebrating human ingenuity.

Written by Helen Keen, Jenny Laville, Lloyd Langford and Carrie Quinlan and special thanks to Laura-Alexandra Smith.
Cast: Helen Keen, Jon Culshaw and Susy Kane.

FRI 21:00 Streets Apart: A History of Social Housing (b098ns6r)
Omnibus, Streets in the Sky

Lynsey Hanley explores the era of council housing that was defined by high rise living.

In 1957, a gigantic, futuristic new council block started to appear on the hillside above Sheffield train station. Four years later it was finished and residents from the old slums that used to dot the area started to move in. The building's name was Park Hill and it would become a vessel for everything people hate - and love - about late 20th century council housing in Britain.

The architects of the building were two young Cambridge graduates called Jack Lynn and Ivor Smith. They took their inspiration from a fashionable French architect who went by the name Le Corbusier. Le Corbusier had grand ideas about space, light and order but he also thought modernist buildings needed to try and recreate the street patterns of old back to back houses - but 50 feet up in the air. This idea was known as 'streets in the sky' and it would come to dominate the thinking around estate architecture for a generation.

In this episode, Lynsey explores the trend of building upwards.

Park Hill was just the beginning of an era that saw our city skylines dotted with tower blocks and high rise buildings. All that came to an end with the collapse of Ronan Point in 1968, but it is a period that still dominates our thinking about estates. Grenfell Tower was designed and conceived of at this time.

Lynsey visits Park Hill to find out what it was like to live in this radical new building. She also meets the residents who live there now and asks whether a recent regeneration has changed the social fabric of the building beyond recognition.
