SAT 07:30 Sitting for Fay (b00lb6q7)
Christine Finn discovers a rich seam of literary life in photographer Fay Godwin's work.

Best known for her later landscape work, Godwin spent the 1970s and 80s taking portraits of some of the leading figures of the literary scene. Many iconic book-jacket images were taken by her, including a sultry Ted Hughes with that lock of hair falling over his face, Philip Larkin and the rubber plant, Seamus Heaney and the tree, Desmond Morris in a safari suit, a pensive Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Keith Waterhouse slumped in a basket chair and Salman Rushdie with a hookah.

Christine gained access to Godwin's home and studio as it was being prepared for sale, and with Godwin's friend, photographic historian Roger Taylor, examined the archive. It shows that many of Godwin's later collaborations on books of landscapes - most notably with Ted Hughes, but also with Richard Ingrams and Philip Larkin - were born in the portrait sittings and the relationships that grew out of them.

The programme also hears from poet Alan Brownjohn about the experience of sitting for Fay, and examines an archive of prints, contact sheets and letters from her sitters, held in the British Library since her death in 2005, with photo critic and editor Sue Steward.

SAT 09:00 A Taste of Funny with Denis Norden (b007s6p7)
From Jimmy Durante and Jack Benny - via Beyond The Fringe - to Alan Coren, Linda Smith and Victoria Wood.

Comedy writer Denis Norden curates three hours of personally-chosen comedy listening, based on his own collection of comedy albums, and from wading through nine decades of his own accumulated radio memories.

Denis explains to Nick Baker how as a young serviceman, the humour on the American Forces Network played a huge part in widening his comedy horizons. Whether it was Bette Davis sparring with Jimmy Durante or Judy Garland joking with Bob Hope, he salutes the one-liners, irreverent put downs and insults on shows like 'Command Performance'.

Denis also recalls the first American comedy vinyl in Britain and reflects on the topical, improvisational tones of Mort Sahl's jazz-inflected comedic riffs. He and Frank Muir booked Mort on the BBC. We also hear some Shelley Berman and routines chronicling 1960s changing gender relations, with male/female duos like Mike Nichols and Elaine May.

Returning to his British comedy roots, Denis enlarges on his penchant for "acoustic humour" and his love of language-based laughter.

Plus highlights of Denis's own material - leading to a masterclass in the construction of jokes as well as a tribute to his late writing partner, Frank Muir.

Denis Norden's influence on the British comedy landscape includes not only co-creating British sitcom's first dysfunctional family, the Glums (Take it From Here) but also a period as Comedy Consultant for BBC TV, alongside Frank Muir. Later, he and Frank spent decades on BBC Radio's My Word! and My Music! Denis was also ITV's long-serving presenter of comedy cock-ups for 'It'll Be Alright on The Night'.

Made for BBC Radio 4 Extra by Test Bed Productions.

First broadcast in 2013.

The Offer was set in a house with a yard full of junk, featuring the lives of rag and bone men Albert Steptoe and his son Harold and it was the spark for a run of 8 series for TV.

A Dream of Armageddon

Stranger

A stranger on a train reveals his secret. When he dreams, he enters a future reality of an advanced civilization descending into senseless war. Read in two-parts by Robert Bathurst.

Written in 1901, this is a disturbing vision of the future - as Wells comes uncannily close to predicting the horrors of the Second World War.

English author and political philosopher, HG Wells is recognised as one of sci-fi's founding-fathers. Within his own lifetime, he became a literary celebrity, earning praise from contemporaries such as Henry James and Joseph Conrad. His influence was wide reaching; George Orwell in particular - "The minds of all of us, and therefore the physical world, would be perceptibly different if Wells never existed." In recent years his work has enjoyed a renaissance, including Steven Spielberg's 2005 film of War Of The Worlds.

Wells died on August 13th, 1946, aged 79.

With the table set for Shabbat-eve, Lionel Blue looks back on his unorthodox life. As Britain's first openly gay Rabbi, often referred to as "cherub-faced", he tells Nina how food has been inextricably linked with personal transformation, from changing tastes and a fluctuating waistline to transformed circumstances and shifting beliefs. However, he still remembers watching his grandmother cooking potato latkes and eating them on toast or with apple sauce. It was the kind of food that fed the family, the neighbours and, he implies, the soul.

The producer is Tamsin Hughes, and this is a Wise Buddah production for BBC Radio 4.

Round The Horne was born out of the demise of BBC radio comedy Beyond Our Ken, after the end of writer Eric Merriman's involvement. Using the same cast and producer, Barry Took and Marty Feldman were persuaded to write the scripts - which led to four series that ran between 1965 and 1968 - packed full of parodies, recurring characters, catchphrases and double-entendres.

Marty Feldman had moved on so series 4 is written by Barry Took with Brian Cooke & Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Webster.

Kathy Burke, Robert Webb, Sara Cox, Kim Wilde, Arthur Smith, Tindersticks

It's Nil by Mouth for Clive, who talks to award-winning actress, comedian and director Kathy Burke, who's directing riotous comedy 'Once a Catholic'. Set in a convent girls' school in 1957, where the nuns at Our Lady of Fatima preach chastity and diligence as the swinging sixties approach. Final exams loom. The day of reckoning is nigh. But for the girls in class 5A, their last year in uniform is set to be one of discovery of the less holy kind. 'Once a Catholic' is at London's Tricycle Theatre until 18th January 2014.

Clive's Kept Hangin' On by singer and presenter Kim Wilde, who shot to fame in 1981 with her smash hit 'Kids In America' and is the most-charted British solo female act of the 1980s. Kim's in a festive mood with a new album of part original songs / part classic Yuletide tunes. She sings 'Hey Mr Snowman' from 'Wilde Winter Songbook'.

Arthur Smith's Born Sloppy with DJ Sara Cox, whose new Radio 2 show 'Sounds of the '80s' looks at a decade that saw synthesizers, ghetto blasters and the moonwalk explode on to the music scene. It was the age of New wave and synth pop, hip-hop, hard rock and glam metal, leaving a legacy of shellsuits, mobile phones, the CD, the Yuppie and even ET. 'Sounds of the '80s' is on 30th November at 22.00.

Clive's tuned in to comedian and actor Robert Webb, who returns to the Radio 4 airwaves alongside David Mitchell with their distinctive and lopsided views on the world through satirical sketches and surreal characters. The second episode of 'That Mitchell and Webb Sound' is on 3rd December at 18.30.
