Neil MacGregor, the director of the British Museum in London, finally completes his mamouth global history as told through objects from the Museum's collection. In this final episode, he brings us to the world of our own making. The 20th century saw objects used to express the power of totalitarian regimes, the sexual revolution of the 1960s and the end of Europe's colonial empires. Technological innovations have changed the way we relate to each other and the material world. The invention of man-made materials like plastic resulted in mass production and consumption on an unprecedented scale. More objects have been produced in the last 100 years than ever before. Yet many of these new objects are ephemeral and disposable. This raises questions about the environment, global resources, and sustainability. But, as has been true for almost 2 million years, the objects we use to face these challenges will go on to reveal our history to future generations.


Producer: Paul Kobrak.

Series 8

Have a Great Weekend

Radio 4's most curmudgeonly author is back for a new series, complete with his trusty companion Elgar and his never ending capacity for scrimping and scraping at whatever scraps his agent, Ping, can offer him to keep body, mind and cat together.

Inevitably he finds himself once more battling through the week encountering the numerous 12-year olds who run the media, teaching the lively bunch of pensioners who can "teach him a thing or two about money making schemes, frugal living and having a good time thank you very much", and regular run-ins with the rather successful Jaz Milvane, director of Ed's only ever book-to-screen adaptation.

As we renew our acquaintance with Ed we find him in a somewhat lighter mood, enjoying normal weekend-ish type things, like having a bath, and whistling. He's also visiting the DIY store - because he can. His renewed acquaintance with 1960's hot young model, Fiona Templeton, could have much to do with this new outlook, particularly as they have a shared love of the free sachets to be found in the Sunday newspapers. As long as they don't mix up the shampoo sachet with the brown sauce sachet they should be fine.

Who hasn't thought about running away from it all at some time or other? Throwing caution to the wind, wrenching oneself out of a long established orbit to head for the deep space of the unknown?

Barry (Tony Pitts) and Jimmy (Kevin Eldon) haven't. Until now. Friends since school days in a small town, they find themselves slipping inexorably and almost unconsciously into middle age.

Shedtown is a dream born out of quiet desperation. Throughout the series our wooden icon of escape and isolation 'the shed' becomes a symbol of possibility and change; a new community by the sea where our heroes can circumnavigate the mundane, once and for all.
