SAT 12:15 Music Feature (b00twy4b)
Dialogues of Sorrow

Historian, Tristram Hunt explores how the death of Henry Stuart, Prince of Wales, eldest son of King James I at the age of only 18, gripped the nation and led to an unprecedented outpouring of musical and cultural responses.

He was the "People's Prince" and over 2,000 official mourners attended his funeral with satellite events in Oxford, Cambridge and Bristol. Just compare that to Elizabeth I's death where there were only a couple of hundred official mourners. They felt the loss of what might have been had Henry succeed the uncouth and ill-disciplined, James.

Henry was seen as the great hope for Great Britain. He was a renaissance prince who looked to Europe, collecting Italian art, he loved pomp and ceremony and he vowed to fight the protestant cause. Every major writer and composer responded to the young Prince's death, including John Donne, George Herbert, William Byrd and Thomas Weelkes.

Tristram Hunt explores these responses with the help of Gabriel Crouch, director of the vocal ensemble Gallicantus, and music editor Sally Dunkley. In the library of Christchurch, Oxford they uncover the Fanshawe manuscripts, one of the most important collections of responses including the heartfelt and moving piece "Tis now Dead Night" by Thomas Ford, recently reconstructed for performance by Gallicantus.

Tristram also visits the National Portrait Gallery with its former director, historian Sir Roy Strong, who has been fascinated by Henry's life since the 1960s. At the gallery, they see portraits of the dashing young prince, a small medallion of him portrayed like a Roman emperor and an etching of the hearse for his lavish funeral. It's impossible to ignore the parallels to Diana's death.

SAT 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00twy80)
La Capella Ducale and Musica Fiata, Köln

Catherine Bott presents a concert by Musica Fiata and La Capella Ducale, directed by Roland Wilson, in the Chapter House of York Minster as part of the 2010 York Early Music Festival. Their programme consists of German wedding music from the time of the Thirty Years War, by Scheidt, Schein and Schutz.

During this turbulent time in North European history, composers found it very difficult to get their music printed, but rich patrons were still keen to commission special music for weddings, which they would then see published. As a result several composers of the time adapted their best pieces to suit the wedding theme in the hope that their music would then reach a wider audience. This concert reflects some of that music.

SAT 14:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b00ts1dk)

When the young Edvard Grieg was studying in Leipzig he encountered the music of Robert Schumann and it changed his life. In this live recital from London's Wigmore Hall the brilliant young Russian violinist Ilya Gringolts is joined by fellow former Radio 3 New Generation Artist, pianist Ashley Wass for sonatas by both composers. They pair Grieg's youthful 1st Sonata, written on holiday in Denmark, with Schumann's darker and fiery 2nd Sonata. The concert is introduced by Sean Rafferty.

Britten's Billy Budd

From this summer's Festival, a first for Glyndebourne: a new production of Benjamin Britten's Billy Budd, based on Herman Melville's allegorical tale of good versus evil on board an 18th century warship. Jacques Imbrailo sings Budd, a young foretopman whose beauty and goodness makes him immediately popular with the crew. But those same qualities also draw a strong reaction from the Master at Arms, John Claggart, and feelings he would rather leave repressed. John Mark Ainsley sings Captain Vere, whose fateful decision on board haunts him for the rest of his life.

Andrew McGregor talks to director Michael Grandage about his operatic debut, and to Mark Elder who is also conducting Budd for the first time.

SAT 21:30 The Wire (b00tz03g)
Castlereagh to Kandahar

Speedy and Stig are best of mates who play in a band together. Not an ordinary band, it's an Orange Flute Band. The rhythms that pound in their veins are those of ancient war, of adrenalin mixed with atavism, blood and thunder, drugs and alcohol. The sheer 'white noise' of their lives, leads them to beatings, to kickings and the knowledge that if they don't get out, they'll end up dead. And how ironic is it then that within 8 months Stig has exchanged the streets of Belfast for those of Kandahar. And it's anybody's bet as to whether Stig in Afghanistan or Speedy in Belfast will be the first to come home in a box.

Rosemary Jenkinson studied medieval literature at Durham. Her collection of short stories, Contemporary Problems Nos. 53 & 54 was published by Lagan Press in 2004. Since then she has been writing a series of provocative plays for Rough Magic, Tinderbox, and the Abbey Theatre in Dublin.

Cast includes:
Speedy.....Richard Dormer

Alana.....Abigail McGibbon
Mrs Murdoch.....Stella McCusker

Dimitrie Cantemir

Lucie Skeaping profiles the extraordinary life and work of the polyglot Dimitrie Cantemir. Born in Moldavia in 1673, he became one of the foremost intellectuals of Eastern Europe. Scholar, Orientalist, composer, theorist, historian, and fleetingly Prince of Moldavia, he also was a virtuoso played of the tanbur, a long-necked lute. In 1710 Cantemir compiled 'The Book of the Science of Music', a collection of about 355 compositions, 9 of which were by Cantemir himself. This collection charted the theory and forms of 17th century Ottoman music, and was written in a notation also devised by Cantemir. The music in the programme includes several works form this book, and traditional music from the Ottoman world during this time, including recordings by Hesperion XXI.

Alan Sillitoe

Nottingham-born Alan Sillitoe, one of the 'Angry Young Men' generation of British writers, died earlier this year at the age of 82. The author of many novels, poetry collections and an auobiography, he shot to fame in 1958 on the publication of 'Saturday Night and Sunday Morning', a gritty depiction of contemporary urban working-class life in the Midlands. The novel was filmed by Karel Reisz in 1960, starring the young Albert Finney as its anti-hero. Sillitoe's other best-known book, 'The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner', appeared in 1959, and was filmed three years later by Tony Richardson, starring Tom Courtenay.

Alan Sillitoe was a keen music-lover, and his choices include Jerome Kern's 'Ol' Man River', sung by Paul Robeson; Maria Callas singing 'Casta diva' from Bellini's opera 'Norma'; Vaughan Williams' arrangement of the English folk-song 'Seventeen Come Sunday', Artur Rubinstein playing a Chopin Prelude, and two pieces by Soviet composers, reflecting Sillitoe's lifelong interest in the Soviet Union - an excerpt from Prokofiev's ballet 'Romeo and Juliet', and Shostakovich's 'The Execution of Stepan Razin'.

SUN 17:00 Discovering Music (b00twygd)
16th Century Polyphony

Catherine Bott explores some of the joys of English ployphony with Harry Christophers, Sally Dunkley and The Sixteen in an exploration of music by Byrd, Tallis and Sheppard.

The programme was recorded at the National Centre for Early Music in York as part of the 2010 York Early Music Festival and unpicks some of the working and ideas behind three contrasting masterpieces from 16th century English chuch music. William Byrd's "Infelix Ego" is a meditation on Psalm 50 written by the Italian friar Girolamo Savonarola shortly before his execution for heresy.

Thomas Tallis's short but intensely expressive "Miserere Nostri" is an intricate web of musical games and devices around the words "have mercy on us lord, have mercy on us".

Finally John Sheppard's "Media Vita" is a setting of plainsong and text based around the Nunc Dimittis, the traditional song for evening prayer, composed by Sheppard on an uniquely grand scale.

Harry Christophers, the director of The Sixteen, and Sally Dunkley who sings with the group and prepeares many of The Sixteen's editions, discuss and illustrate with Catherine Bott some of musical thinking behind these pieces.

Lorca's Rural Trilogy


Yerma by Federico Garcia Lorca
in a translation by Michael Dewell and Carmen Zapata

The tragic tale of a woman's desperate yearning for a child that leads her to murder. Infused with poetic imagery and song this is one of Lorca's best known plays, written in 1934.

Federico Garcia Lorca (1898 - 1936) is, with Cervantes, the best known figure in Spanish literature. His plays Blood Wedding, Yerma and The House of Bernarda Alba are often referred to as a 'rural trilogy' and all three are being broadcast together on Radio 3 in March 2014.

James Young Deer - The Winnebago Movie-Maker

In the years before the First World War, a man called James Young Deer was celebrated in the American movie business papers as the world's first Native American film-maker.

He turned the conventions of the Western on their heads.

He showed Indian men rescuing, and marrying, white women.

In one film, 'The Squawman's Revenge', he presented audiences with a white man joining an Indian community - and helping them wreak vengeance on a white settlement.

Another of his movies was titled 'Red Eagle the Lawyer'.

Together with his wife, 'Princess Red Wing', Young Deer made dozens of movies like this, playing a key part in the earliest years of the California film industry.

But in 1914, faced with a sex scandal, he suddenly fled his job running Pathé's West Coast studio. He escaped to New York, and caught the boat to Liverpool.

Young Deer's work in California has recently become the subject of pioneering research in America. But the story of his time in England is unknown, even to most US historians of his work.

Now, with the help of specialists of the early British movie studios, film historian Matthew Sweet pieces together the astonishing story of how this extraordinary man spent much of 1914 shooting thrillers in London.

He visits the sites in Finchley, Waterloo and Crystal Palace where Young Deer shot a series of gangster flicks like 'The Queen of the London Counterfeiters' and 'The Black Cross Gang'.

Historian Gerry Turvey shows Matthew a breathless interview in the British movie press, revealing Young Deer's hair-raising zest for blowing things up.

And Matthew explores why, once he returned to America as war broke out, Young Deer's career never recovered.

He listens to a rare interview, conducted in the 1970s by film historian Kevin Brownlow, with Al Hoxie, a veteran of the early days of Hollywood. Hoxie recalls how Young Deer spent his later years running a two-bit acting school - forgotten by the industry for which he did so much.

Young Deer was accepted and promoted as a Native American, and his films were received as such at the time.

Yet, intriguingly, Matthew hears that there is now some doubt about his origins.

So he talks to Philip Deloria, a historian of Native American heritage, about what the legacy of Young Deer - radical movies, murky background and all - means today.

With Angela Aleiss, Andrew Brodie Smith, Kevin Brownlow, Ian Christie, Philp Deloria, Tony Fletcher and Gerry Turvey.

Producer - Phil Tinline.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00twypp)
Thomas Tallis (1505-1585)

Episode 1

Thomas Tallis lived a long life by sixteenth century standards - he was 80 when he died, having served at the Chapel Royal under four monarchs, beginning with Henry VIII and ending with Elizabeth I. The sixteenth century was an unfortunate time to be a church musician in England. The country shuddered with political and religious upheaval as Henry, then Edward VI, then Mary and finally Elizabeth attempted to establish their own religious reforms. Heretics were sent to the stake, traitors executed in the Tower. Music was one of the battlegrounds, with significant risks attached for its practitioners. Composers delicately negotiated the move from the elaborate and large-scale Catholic works of the early sixteenth century to a plainer style under Edward. This was promptly reversed, just a few years later, when Mary came to the throne, but she herself didn't reign for long, and in the end it was Elizabeth who found the compromise between the needs of the Catholics at one end of the religious spectrum and the Puritans at the other.

Tallis worked at the hub of English church music, the Chapel Royal, for forty years. And through it all, he turned out piece after piece of glorious music, seemingly unperturbed when all the rules changed and changed again. As Peter Phillips of the Tallis Scholars puts it: "What it took in terms of stamina and personality to survive and excel as Tallis did, in the times he did, has something of a miracle about it."

In the first programme of the week, Donald Macleod explores the beginning of Tallis's career. The first hint of troubled times ahead came when Tallis lost his job at the dissolution of Dover Priory. The same thing happened again at Waltham Abbey and he made his way to London, via Canterbury Cathedral.

Performance on 3

Presented by Martin Handley

Andris Nelsons conducts the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Brahms's ever-popular Violin Concerto and Shostakovich's wartime 8th Symphony, recorded last week at Symphony Hall Birmingham. Written in 1943 Shostakovich's 8th Symphony was not the celebratory homage to the Soviet war machine that the authorities had expected from the composer following the huge success of his previous 'Leningrad' symphony, it received a tepid reception and was little performed in the following years. Today the work is considered among the composer's masterpieces.

Correct English, John Le Mesurier, Made in Dagenham, Martin Parr

Matthew Sweet will be talking to the journalist Simon Heffer about his new book, 'Strictly English'. They'll be joined by the writer Michael Rosen to discuss the importance of writing 'correctly'.

The biographer Graham McCann will talk about his new life of John Le Mesurier, the English actor best known for his role as Sergeant Wilson in 'Dad's Army', a performance which epitomised English upper class languor.

A review of 'Made in Dagenham', a new film about the women machinists of Ford Dagenham who went on strike for equal pay in 1968. The producer of the film was inspired by a programme he heard on Radio 4 about the women involved but what will the director of Calendar Girls do with the latest in a long line of British films about industrial relations, films including 'I'm alright, Jack' and the anti-union comedy 'Carry on at your Convenience'?

And the photographer Martin Parr talks about his photo biennial in Brighton, a festival of contemporary photography that is frame-free - all the images will be pinned onto the walls and other surfaces of a variety of venues, from Brighton Museum and Art Gallery to shop windows and advertising hoardings.

Producer: Fiona McLean.

MON 23:00 The Essay (b00twyq2)
A Letter to My Body

Sarah Graham

'A Letter to my Body' is a series of essays in which five thinkers, artists and writers ask themselves how they relate to their own bodies. In this first essay Sarah Graham, who is now a successful therapist and addictions counsellor, explores her at times turbulent relationship with her body. From the age of eight Sarah was given ongoing medical treatment for a disorder of sexual development - but she only learned the real nature of her diagnosis at the age of twenty-five when a gynaecologist finally revealed the truth: that she is an intersex woman. She has XY chromosomes. She had never questioned her sex and had lived her life as a woman. Doctors had even shielded her parents from the truth about her gender. The shock of the revelation led Sarah on a path of depression and addiction which nearly killed her. However she has gradually rebuilt her health and her self esteem. In this essay she makes peace with her body and questions our society's polarised expectations of gender.
Producer: Charlotte Simpson.

MON 23:15 Jazz on 3 (b00twyq4)
The Vandermark 5, Jon Rose

Jez Nelson presents the Vandermark 5 in concert at The Vortex, led by reeds player Ken Vandermark, who has been a pioneer of Chicago's jazz and improvisation scene for two decades. Ken formed the Vandermark 5 in 1996. 14 years and 15 albums later, they continue to be one of the most exciting and forward-looking bands in contemporary music, exploring the borders of composition and improvisation, and of jazz, funk rock and new music. Alongside Ken Vandermark, the band currently features drummer Tim Daisy, Kent Kessler on double bass, cellist Fred Lonberg-Holm and saxophonist Dave Rempis.

Plus a session from experimental violinist and improviser Jon Rose who performs on tenor violin with an interactive K bow. Built into the bow are several movement and pressure sensors that trigger samples and vary musical parameters set by a specially designed software package. Using a range of samples manipulated by conventional bowing techniques and dramatic sweeping movements alongside the acoustic sound of the violin Jon Rose creates a mind blowing solo session.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producer: Joby Waldman.

TUE 21:15 Night Waves (b00twytw)
Colm Toibin, Gauguin, Christopher Isherwood

Philip Dodd talks to the writer Colm Toibin - whose previous novel Brooklyn won the 2009 Costa Novel Award - about his new collection of short stories, The Empty Family. From the young Pakistani immigrant trying to settle in a strange town to the Irish woman reluctantly moving back to Dublin, Toibin's stories tell of people fleeing the past and returning home.

Plus the critic Richard Cork and novelist Sarah hall discuss the French Post-Impressionist painter and sculptor Paul Gauguin, whose colourful images of women in Tahiti and landscape images of Brittany are included in a major retrospective of the artist at Tate Modern.

And Christopher Isherwood. His novels include A Single Man and Goodbye to Berlin, on which the musical Cabaret was based. As Isherwood's diaries from the 1960's are published, editor Katherine Bucknell looks at his colourful progress through the decade of social and sexual revolution, including the emotional drama of his love for the American painter Don Bachardy, thirty years his junior. And the screenwriter Kevin Elyot talks about his adaptation of Christopher and his Kind, Isherwood's frank memoir about life in the bohemian underworld of 1930's Berlin.

Producer: Natalie Steed.

A Letter to My Body

Antony Gormley

Sculptor Antony Gormley discusses his relationship to his own body and why it has featured so prominently in his art. He remembers how the experience of being forced to take an afternoon nap during his childhood set him on the path to learning meditation and he explains why he is now making a conscious effort to 'simply be' in the space of the body without seeking to control it or to make constant use of it.
Producer: Charlotte Simpson.

WED 21:15 Night Waves (b00twz4r)
Galileo, Birdsong, Nigeria, Sound in Art

Rana Mitter discusses the life and work of Galileo, 400 years after his book The Starry Messenger rocked the Catholic Church and laid the foundation stone of modern physics. Two new biographies reassess Galileo's place in Renaissance culture - Galileo by John Heilbron, Professor of History at Berkeley, and Galileo: Watcher of the Skies by David Wootton, Professor of History at York.

David Wootton rejects the orthodoxy which holds that Galileo was a good Catholic and argues that Galileo was a clandestine devotee of Copernicanism much earlier than other biographers believe.

John Heilbron reveals how his work on a Sun-Centred Universe transformed Galileo from a melancholic mathematics professor into an outspoken and celebrated astronomer - 'The Columbus of the Heavens'.

Susannah Clapp reviews 'Birdsong', the stage adapation of Sebastian Faulks's celebrated novel set against a backdrop of Flanders in World War One. Birdsong opens at the Comedy Theatre London.

Nigeria will celebrate fifty years as an independent state on 1st October. Rana asks the playwright Gabriel Gbadamosi and the publisher Bibi Bakare-Yusuf if the country, which has at least two hundred and fifty different cultural, religious and ethnic groups, has been able to develop a coherent national identity.

And Rana discusses the increasing interest in art that uses sound with Susan Philipsz, nominated for this year's Turner Prize and John Keiffer, creative director of Sound and Music. Susan's public art installations include recordings of her voice singing songs played out under three bridges along the Clyde and her latest project uses the eerily deserted weekend streets of the City of London.

Producer: Victoria Shepherd.

Elizabeth Gaskell, Collapse, Dominic Sandbrook, Mona Saudi

Anne McElvoy marks the 200th birthday of Elizabeth Gaskell, whose novels include Wives and Daughters and Cranford. The recent television adaptation of Cranford brought Gaskell to a large new audience but, in her other novels, she revealed herself to be an important social critic of Victorian society. Biographer Kathryn Hughes and historian Jenny Uglow discuss.

David Aaronovitch reviews a provocative new documentary which claims the collapse of modern industrial civilisation is imminent. Collapse is released in cinemas on Friday.

The historian Dominic Sandbrook looks back at the 1970s, arguing in a new book that the period between 1970 and 74 was more important to Britain than the 60s. He discusses the profound social and economic transformation of a country that faced daily headlines about terrorist attacks and power cuts yet possessed material comforts that went way beyond those available to the previous generation. State of Emergency: The Way we Were 1970-1974 is published in hardback.

Director Nicholas Roeg and film critic Adrian Wootton remember Tony Curtis, one of the last of the golden era of Hollywood stars, whose films include Some Like it Hot, Spartacus and The Defiant Ones.

Producer: Timothy Prosser.

A Letter to My Body

Ted Harrison

Writer and journalist Ted Harrison asks what body, soul and self really mean in the light of advances in our understanding of molecular biology. Can the Cartesian idea of body-soul dualism mean anything today? Twenty years ago Ted himself received a life-saving kidney transplant. He reflects on how he views the donor organ - and the unknown friend who donated it and he asks whether the development of organ and tissue transplantation changes our notions of the integrity of the body.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00twzfx)
Thomas Tallis (1505-1585)

Episode 5

Donald Macleod traces Tallis's career under Elizabeth I, who granted Tallis and his colleague Byrd a licence to publish the first ever collection of English music, the Cantiones Sacrae. (They hoped to make a fortune, but the venture was a financial disaster and it wasn't long before they were petitioning their benevolent queen for a bit of cash to tide them over.) We hear some of the pieces which were included in the collection and Byrd's musical elegy for his lifelong friend. Plus there's Tallis's beautiful Lamentations of Jeremiah and two settings of the Magnificat, which make quite clear the range of styles he was expected to master.

FRI 23:00 The Essay (b00twzg9)
A Letter to My Body

Joan Bakewell

'A Letter to my Body' is a series of essays in which five thinkers, artists and writers ask themselves how they relate to their own bodies. In this essay broadcaster Dame Joan Bakewell, who has been outspoken on the way that our society perceives and treats old people, asks herself how she feels about her own body now that she has reached her seventies. She explores the cultural influences - from Shirley Temple to the image of the white wedding - which led her to grow up seeking to use her appearance to gain affection and approval and asks whether now, as she approaches old age, she has finally been liberated from society's expectations of the female body.
Producer: Charlotte Simpson.

FRI 23:15 World on 3 (b00twzgc)
Moishe's Bagel

Mary Ann Kennedy with new releases from across the globe, plus a studio session with Scottish klezmer band Moishe's Bagel, who play tracks from their new album 'Uncle Roland's Flying Machine'.

Moishe's Bagel play Jewish klezmer, but only one and a half of them is Jewish. They are a Scottish band, but only one of them grew up in Scotland. So it's no surprise that their klezmer embraces influences from far and wide, a unique blend of Balkan grooves with jazz, folk and eastern percussion, all delivered with great virtuosity. The group is led by classically-trained pianist Phil Alexander, and includes violinist Greg Lawson, who also plays with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra; leading accordionist Pete Garnett; Guy Nicolson, who specialises in oriental percussion; and Brazilian bass player Mario Caribe.
