MON 11:15 Loose Ends (b03bpsxb)
Clive Anderson, Roy Harper, Frederick Forsyth, Steven Berkoff, Lucy Worsley, Miranda Sawyer, Rafiki

Clive talks to bestselling author Frederick Forsyth about penning such thrillers as 'The Day of the Jackal' and 'The Odessa File'. Frederick's latest novel 'The Kill List' tells the story of The Preacher, a terrorist who radicalises young Muslims abroad to carry out assassinations. Unfortunately for him, one of those killed is a retired Marine general, whose son is trained to track and kill those who are dangerous to the West.

Historian and curator Dr Lucy Worsley's new TV series focusses on a very British obsession. Murder is the most despicable and foulest crime of all, yet we are fascinated by it. Lucy tells Clive why in real-life and in fiction, murder provides us with stories that do more than repel us, they entertain us. 'A Very British Murder' is on Monday 30th September at 21.00 on BBC Four.

Miranda Sawyer's in The Garden of Uranium with wildly influential folk / rock singer songwriter Roy Harper, who's just released 'Man And Myth'; his first studio album in 13 years. Miranda finds out what it takes to be one of the leading, most erudite and passionate orators of the British folk rock renaissance. Roy also performs 'Time Is Temporary' in the Loose Ends studio.

Clive talks to maverick writer, director and actor Steven Berkoff, whose collection of short plays, 'Religion and Anarchy' centres around the theme of the latent anti-Semitism - a prejudice that, despite the cataclysmic events of twentieth century, refuses to go away and continues to infuse the very heart of the society in which we live. It's at London's Jermyn Street Theatre until Tuesday 26th October.

With more music from five piece progressive funk rock band Rafiki, who perform 'Another Time' from their forthcoming 'One By One' EP.

Producer: Sukey Firth.

The Lie of the Land

Self-confessed map addict Mike Parker explores modern cartography.

There are lies, damned lies, statistics - and then there are maps. Borders can be moved and countries expanded, shrunk or even left off the map altogether. We'd like to believe that maps are a purely factual representation of the world with no bias or agenda, but in fact every cartographer decides what to include on their map and what to exclude. Mike Parker discovers how maps can be used as tools of power, politics and propaganda.

Ann Patchett has this to say, "The Tiger's Wife is a marvel of beauty and imagination. Tea Obreht is a tremendously talented writer."

MON 18:30 A Night with a Vampire (b00w1y0k)
Series 1

Dead Persons in Hungary, by AA Calmet

Are vampires real? The testimony of early 18th-century witnesses suggests a definitive answer.

Read by David Tennant.

Antoine Augustin Calmet published an apparently serious anthropological history of the vampire throughout Europe in the early 19th century called "The Phantom World". All the people he spoke to were adamant about what they had witnessed. His account therefore appears all the more disturbing and became the basis for the flights of vampiric fancy that took off in the Victorian age.

MON 23:30 Micky Flanagan: What Chance Change? (b00sg13d)
1970s

Cockney geezer Micky Flanagan regales us with the story of his journey from tabloid to broadsheet; from the street party to the dinner party; from apples and pears to stocks and shares... Well you've got the idea.

Each week's episode focuses on a different decade of Micky's life. Micky regales us with stories from his life told through stand up comedy. In between, the programmes goes 'behind the scenes' with short interviews that give an insight into the stand up.

In this opening episode Micky talks about growing up in the East End in the 1970's. He chats to his school friends about their shared experiences of leaving with no qualifications to work at Billingsgate Fish Market. He also interviews Sociology Professor Paul Willis about his research on working class boys in a 1970's school.

Micky's transition from the mean streets of the East End, working as a Billingsgate Fish Porter to an entertainer living in the leafy lanes of Dulwich is a fascinating story, all the better for being told through jokes. The issue of class is a crucial theme in Micky's stand up. However it is framed less as "Do we now have a classless society?" and more as "Is it ok to ask for Tomato sauce in a fancy French restaurant?"

The series is written and performed by Micky Flanagan.
The producer is Tilusha Ghelani.

by Nigel Planer

Lapo ..... Phil Daniels
Loti ..... Bryan Dick
Pope Julius ..... Gary Waldhorn
Cardinal Alidosi ..... Roger Lloyd Pack

Composer ..... Adam Cork
Directed by Mary Peate

High up on the wooden scaffolding tower of the Sistine Chapel, two fresco plasterers get on with the day's work preparing the ceiling for their boss Michelangelo who has not bothered to turn up for work again. As they do so, they bemoan the uselessness of the great master.

Pope Julius and Cardinal Alidosi visit the chapel to inspect the progress of their commission. They are never very impressed, and the Pope is more concerned about getting Michelangelo to do his funeral monument at a knock-down price.

On the Ceiling is not about great artists; it is about those people whose names don't go down in history: the ones who do the essential drudge work, their frustration at their lack of genius and their pride in their own technical expertise. In this version of events, low elements combine to make high art.

Nigel Planer is best known as Neil in The Young Ones, and as Nicholas Craig - The Naked Actor. Other television productions include Shine on Harvey Moon; Dennis Potter's Blackeyes. On stage, Nigel has performed in Simon Gray's Unnatural Pursuits; Ben Elton's We Will Rock You and Hairspray.
