SAT 17:30 Kerry's List (b01s7yvx)
Series 1

Episode 2

The second in a four-part sketch show co-written by and starring comedian and actress Kerry Godliman.

Kerry is a married mother of two, a stand up comedian and has two children. Her life can only properly function with her daily list - if she didn't compile this vital list, her life would simply fall apart.
Each week, this series looks at a different list and delves into Kerry's madcap world by looking at various elements of that week's list in sketches, narrative and stand up.

In this second episode, Kerry's List includes cancelling the organic food box, adopting a panda, searching through the baby's poo, being grateful, changing the water in the fish tank, learning the oboe and selling the Cath Kidston Potting Shed.

Joining Kerry is her husband Ben (played by her real husband Ben Abell) and her five year old daughter Elsie (played by Melissa Bury) together with a range of bizarre characters - including an enthusiastic council environment worker, some disgruntled satsumas, a bored therapist, a Fairy Jeanmother and a very keen gym instructor.

Any busy parent who's ever compiled a list of their own will relate to Kerry Godliman's incident filled world.

The cast includes David Pusey (who co-wrote the series), Bridget Christie, Lucy Briers, Rosie Cavaliero and Nicholas Le Prevost.

Kerry Godliman is fast establishing herself as a highly skilful stand up comic and actress, from her recent appearances on Live at The Apollo (BBC 1), Derek (C4) and Our Girl (BBC 1).

Trust me, I'm a Scientist

Physicist Brian Cox and comedian Robin Ince continue their witty, irreverent and unashamedly rational look at the world according to science.
Brian and Robin are joined by special guests Ben Goldacre and comedian Dave Gorman to discuss the notion of trust in science. Why are people prepared to believe in magic and pseudoscience rather than empirical evidence, and does it matter? Science often appears open ended and evolving, a reason to mistrust it, especially when it can feel like we are bombarded with so much contradictory information. So is the scientific method the only way to truly test if something works, and why should we trust the scientists over alternative practitioners who many people would argue have helped them more than anything that comes out of a laboratory.

by Patricia Highsmith. Ian Hart stars as charming, cultured Tom Ripley, Patricia Highsmith's mischievous anti-hero with a taste for the finer things in life. In the first of five Ripley novels Tom is barely one step ahead of his creditors when a stranger offers him a free trip to Europe and a fresh start.

Dickie Greenleaf...Stephen Hogan
Marge Sherwood...Barbara Barnes
Mr Greenleaf...Malcolm Tierney
Mrs Greenleaf...Janice Acquah
Roverini...Stephen Critchlow
Buffi...Matt Addis

Dramatist Stephen Wyatt
Director Claire Grove

Tom Ripley detests murder unless it is absolutely necessary. He prefers someone else to do the dirty work. But if he's called on to act there is no one more cool, calculating and clever. Radio 4 brings all Patricia Highsmith's Ripley novels together in a thrilling series on five successive Saturdays. Written over 35 years Patricia Highsmith kept being drawn back to her hedonistic, charming, cultured and mischievous anti-hero who has a taste for the finer things in life. Always on the edge of being discovered, Ripley appeals to the amoral instinct in all of us. These are unique and complex crime novels with a brilliantly twisted centre.

Ian Hart stars as Tom Ripley. A BAFTA Award winning actor, Ian Hart has starred in projects as varied as Land and Freedom, The Hound of the Baskervilles, A Cock and Bull Story, Blind Flight and Harry Potter.

"Highsmith's novels are peerlessly disturbing, bad dreams that keep us thrashing for the rest of the night." THE NEW YORKER.

FRI 07:30 Kerry's List (b01sd5gh)
Series 1

Episode 3

The third in a four-part sketch show co-written by and starring comedian and actress Kerry Godliman.

Kerry is a married mother of two, a stand up comedian and has two children. Her life can only properly function with her daily list - if she didn't compile this vital list, her life would simply fall apart.
Each week, this series looks at a different list and delves into Kerry's madcap world by looking at various elements of that week's list in sketches, narrative and stand up.

In this third episode, Kerry's List involves bleaching mugs, napping, sorting out cobwebs, distressing a chest of drawers, organizing CDs, keeping my friend's secret, growing vegetables and buying Puy Lentils.

Joining Kerry is her husband Ben (played by her real husband Ben Abell) and her five year old daughter Elsie (played by Melissa Bury) together with a range of bizarre characters - including an enthusiastic council environment worker, some disgruntled satsumas, a bored therapist, a Fairy Jeanmother and a very keen gym instructor.

Any busy parent who's ever compiled a list of their own will relate to Kerry Godliman's incident filled world.

The cast includes David Pusey (who co-wrote the series), Bridget Christie, Lucy Briers, Rosie Cavaliero and Nicholas Le Prevost.

Kerry Godliman is fast establishing herself as a highly skilful stand up comic and actress, from her recent appearances on Live at The Apollo (BBC 1), Derek (C4) and Our Girl (BBC 1).

FRI 23:00 Blue Jam (b03w472n)
Series 1

Episode 1

The mind of Chris Morris leaks onto radio in this dark, dreamlike blend of low-key comedy and music. Featuring Julia Davis, Mark Heap and Kevin Eldon. From November 1997.

Imprisoned in the infinite misery jumper? Help is at hand. Chris Morris is here to help you wallow in the melancholy. This opening salvo from the voice of On The Hour and The Day Today features a doctor who kisses everything better, a discussion of who should fill your brain-plate and a gun-toting gibbon.

Immediately prior to Blue Jam, Chris Morris had caused a furore with Channel 4's Brass Eye. Yet Blue Jam managed to be a total departure from his previous work. Originally airing late at night on BBC Radio 1, it's a blend of ambient music, deadpan ( sometimes brutal ) sketches and offbeat monologues. A whole audio landscape of the subconscious, the ad-hoc low-fi sheen of production lending it a kind of verisimilitude.

In sharp contrast with the personality-led comedies of recent years, Blue Jam makes a virtue of anonymity. It's a surprise to learn who's in it, or that it is in part written by Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews. Rightly winning a clutch of Sony Awards, it remains unique - nothing before or after was remotely like it.
