Meeting Demelza

Shortly before his death in 2003, Winston Graham wrote a story for the Cornish magazine, Scryfa. He recounts an imaginary meeting with his best-loved and most spirited creation. Read by Ewan Bailey

Winston Graham was one of the most successful and prolific novelists of the 20th century. He wrote in many genres but his best known body of work was undoubtedly the 12 historical novels set in Cornwall at the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th centuries which became known as The Poldarks.

Although it's the Poldarks that brought Winston Graham the most fame, he also wrote more than 30 other novels, six of which have been filmed including the thriller, Marnie directed by Alfred Hitchcock in 1964.

This selection celebrates the range of his work and offers a glimpse into the enduring appeal of his most famous characters, Ross and Demelza who are set to return to BBC screens in a new adaptation.

SAT 18:00 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (b007jm12)
The Primary Phase

Fit The Fourth

Arthur learns the lucrative answer to the question of Life, the Universe and Everything. By Douglas Adams. From March 1978.

Arthur Dent is one of only two survivors from Earth, demolished to make way for a by-pass. He survived thanks to his friend, Ford Prefect (who hails not from Guildford, but somewhere near Betelgeuse), a writer for the Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy, "the most successful book ever to have come out of the great publishing corporations of Ursa Minor". Now paired with fellow Earth survivor Trillian and duplicitous two-headed hustler Zaphod Beeblebrox, Arthur and Ford are on legendary planet Magrathea - and Arthur in particular is about to understand his demolished home world in a new and startling way.

The global multi-media success story that is "Hitchhiker's" started life as a Radio 4 series in March 1978. The original scripts by the late Douglas Adams then went on to spawn a series of novels, a feature film, at least three stage shows, a TV series, a computer game, a collection of comic books - and various towels.

Douglas Adams was born in Cambridge and died in 2001 at the age of 49. He suffered a fatal heart attack after working out at his gym in California.

With Peter Jones, Simon Jones, Geoffrey McGivern, Mark Wing-Davey and Stephen Moore. Produced by the late Geoffrey Perkins.

Alan Ayckbourn's play, adapted for radio by Martyn Read

This comic masterpiece is an hilarious and cruel view of love - avoiding it, yearning for it and falling head over heels in it. Barbara has chosen to live alone. Her immaculate flat is a male-free and child-free zone. As lady of the house, she rents out the bottom flat to Gilbert, a postman with a passion for painting. Her role in life is to remain single and to look after her boss. When her old school friend, Nikki, moves into the upstairs flat with her fiancé, Hamish, Barbara is there to keep an eye on her.

Boz Temple-Morris - Scream

SCREAM is a crime caper based on the extraordinary story behind the theft of Edvard Munch's expressionist masterpiece from an Oslo museum in 2004.

Oslo police are closing in on David Toska, the criminal mastermind behind an audacious cash robbery when two incompetent thieves burst into the Munch Museum in broad daylight and ask for directions to Norway's most famous painting. Amazingly, they emerge with two priceless paintings, The Scream and The Madonna.

Norway's no. 1 detective is pulled off the hunt for Toska and sent after the paintings. So begins a high profile and often bizarre game of cat and mouse as police attempt to track down these national treasures and arrest those behind the robbery.

But things don't run smoothly for robbers or the police as both begin to adopt increasingly unconventional tactics.

The play was written and directed by Boz Temple-Morris, in collaboration with investigative journalist Kris Hollington, and recorded entirely on location in Olso with many of Norway's leading actors. The exact circumstances of the recovery of the paintings have been shrouded in mystery since 2004 though new evidence has now emerged about the dealings between the police and their most wanted man.

But each week, Milton and his trusty assistant Anton set out to help people and soon find they're embroiled in a new adventure. So when you're close to the edge, then Milton can give you a push.

This week, Milton Jones is asked to help out with the local book festival because the townsfolk are too distracted by their smartphones to.... Sorry, what was I saying? Sorry, just got a text.

Letter from America - Alistair Cooke's weekly talks on American life, history and politics - ran on BBC Radio from 1946 until shortly before his death in 2004 at the age of 95.

His 15-minute reflections touched on everything from assassinations to terrorist attacks. One of Alistair's most memorable accounts came when he happened to be in the Los Angeles hotel where Bobby Kennedy was shot in 1968.

Speaking in his final broadcast, Alistair concluded: "Throughout 58 years I have had much enjoyment in doing these talks and hope that some of it has passed over to the listeners".

Cooke's biographer Nick Clarke - former presenter of BBC Radio 4's The World at One - sadly died in 2006.

2000s

Cockney comedian Micky Flanagan's first radio series is about his progression from working-class Herbert to middle-class intellectual and being caught awkwardly between the two. His story is told through reflective interviews, but mainly, Micky's acclaimed stand up comedy. Micky's transition from the mean streets of the East End to the leafy lanes of Dulwich is a fascinating story, with each episode focusing on a different decade of Micky's life.

In this episode Micky takes us through this last decade, which he has spent settling down with a middle class woman "she's been ski-ing and everything" and building a career as a stand up comedian. In the documentary segments, Micky chats to his parents about turning to stand up and discusses comedy and class with the brilliant comic mind that is Sean Lock.

The series is written and performed by Micky Flanagan.

The Producer is Tilusha Ghelani.
