SAT 15:00 World Routes (b00sbvh4)
Fifty years after sixteen countries in Africa became independent, Lucy Duran and the French journalist Florent Mazzoleni play rare tracks from that period. Music was to play a central role in the search for new identity, and in the 60s and 70s some of the continent's greatest dance music was created. Today's programme celebrates countries that became independent in the first half of 1960 including Congo, Senegal, Guinea and Cameroon. Producer James Parkin.

Based in Bordeaux, the French writer and photographer Florent Mazzoleni has travelled all over Africa collecting music, and in particular, documentating the soundtrack of the golden era of Atlantic African music. He's written fifteen books, most notably "Epic of African music: Rhythms of Atlantic Africa" and "Salif Keita, Voice of the Mandingo". His latest book, "Motown: Soul and glamour" will be translated into English this autumn.

The programme includes tracks from Florent's collection many of which have not been re-released since their limited pressing in the 60s and 70s - let alone played on British radio. And these are tracks that reflect a unique period in African history: a period of liberation and short-lived optimism.

Another programme with Florent will be broadcast in September 2010, and will celebrate some of the African countries that became independent in the second half of 1960, such as Mali, Ivory Coast, Nigeria and Gabon.


SAT 16:00 Jazz Library (b00sbvh6)
Michael Garrick

PIanist Michael Garrick died in November 2011. In this archive interview, he joins Alyn Shipton to look back over a fifty year span of some of the finest big band and small group records in British jazz.

Whether inspired by Hobbits, Thomas Hardy or J M Barrie, Garrick's musical settings were some of the most imaginative and colourful in jazz. His music took inspiration from a huge variety of sources, ranging from Indian and Burmese music and literature to English folksongs and novels. A brilliant pianist, Garrick was also known for his pioneering work with Don Rendell and Ian Carr, for his poetry and jazz sessions, and for continuing to lead groups large and small against all commercial odds for over half a century.


SAT 17:00 Jazz Record Requests (b00sbvh8)
Geoffrey Smith presents a selection of listeners' jazz requests.


SAT 18:00 Opera on 3 (b00sbvhb)
Prokofiev's The Gambler

The Royal Opera House curtains open onto the town of Roulettenburg where the whole of life is based around the casino. In the middle of this money-driven world is the possibility of a love story, but is Alexey really in love with Polina, or addicted to her in the same way as he is to his gambling? Prokofiev's rarely heard score is based on Dostoyevsky's novel, and contains some of his most unusual and energetic music. The cast of colourful characters include Roberto Saccà and Angela Denoke as the lovers, and John Tomlinson as the General whose life disintegrates as his aged aunt gambles away his inheritance. Andrew McGregor is joined by Prokofiev biographer David Nice, with interviews from the cast, conductor, and director.

SUNDAY 23 MAY 2010

SUN 00:00 Jazz Library (b008xjcz)
King Oliver

Joe "King" Oliver was the most celebrated cornettist to come out of New Orleans in the early days of jazz. In this programme, bandleader and pianist Keith Nichols joins Alyn Shipton to select the highlights of Oliver's recording career, which spanned 1923 to 1931. His first discs featured the young Louis Armstrong and he went on to be a pioneer of big bands, as well as a specialist in muted blues playing.

For Laurie Wright's 1987 biography of King Oliver, Keith Nichols - who teaches jazz at the Royal Academy of music - analysed every one of Oliver's many recordings, attempting to identify exactly who was playing what - especially on the records from the early days of acoustic recording when few notes were taken at the time, and the musicians themselves quickly forgot what sessions they had played on. So part of this programme is detective work, identifying King Oliver's playing in a variety of contexts. The rest is an exhilarating tour through early jazz: from raunchy blues vocals to close harmony singing; Louis Armstrong's first solos on disc; and Oliver's talking trumpet, an effect he perfected with his mastery of mutes, before his decline into rural obscurity and an early grave in 1938.

I Come From There: The Poetry of Mahmoud Darwish

For many, Mahmoud Darwish was the poet laureate of the Arab world, until he died in August 2008. This programme tells the story of his life and work.

Harriett Gilbert explores the poet who performed his work to crowds of 25,000 and who wrote speeches for Yasser Arafat. At six, after an Israeli attack on Darwish's village in Upper Galilee, his family became refugees in Lebanon, and from then on he lived throughout the Middle East, until his return to Ramallah in 1995. Inter-cut with poetry read by Samuel West, voices from Ramallah, Tel Aviv, Cairo and London discuss this "saviour of the Arab language".

With Adhaf Soueif (novelist), Ruth Padel (poet), Sarah Maguire (translator), Raja Shehadeh (writer and human rights lawyer), Khaled Hroub (journalist and poet), Avirama Golan (writer) and Jeremy Bowen (BBC Middle East editor).

Producer: Rebecca Stratford.

Mahler Symphony Cycle

Episode 8

Presented by Ian Skelly.

Mahler from Manchester: Symphony No.8, "Symphony of a Thousand".

Bringing together the combined forces of the Hallé, the BBC Philharmonic, four choirs and a first-class roster of vocal soloists, Sir Mark Elder conducts Mahler's most monumental symphony. Its epic dimensions and staggering vision, requiring a vast number of performers including blazing brass around the balconies, have earned it the reputation of a work of Olympian proportions. To quote Mahler himself: " imagine the whole universe beginning to ring and resound."

The words combine the medieval hymn 'Veni, Creator Spiritus' and a setting of the final scene of the Goethe's Faust. The performance is preceded by an organ improvisation on the symphony's 'Veni, Creator Spiritus' theme by Olivier Latry, one of the foremost organists of our time.

Jonathan Coe, Yinka Shonibare, Graphic Design, Ondaatje Prize

Matthew Sweet talks to writer Jonathan Coe. The author of The Rotter's Club and What a Carve Up! has a new novel called The Terrible Privacy of Maxwell Sim.

Matthew also talks to Anglo-Nigerian Artist and Turner Prize nominee, Yinka Shonibare, who is about to put Nelson's ship in a bottle on Trafalgar Square's fourth plinth.

Matthew also discusses an art form that is ubiquitous and invisible - Graphic Design. From the typefaces used by our national newspapers, to the logos of global companies and the simply clarity of an emergency exit sign, graphic designers shape the world as we see it. Indeed, although we may think we understand the world through words our public and time pressured culture increasibly communicates through signs. The distinction between picture cultures and word cultures is one of the oldest in the world, something that Patrick Cramsie has written about in his new history of graphic design. He joins Matthew Sweet along with Angus Hyland of the graphic design company Pentagram and Professor Teal Triggs of the London College of Communications to discuss the democratisation of graphic design, its relationship with art and advertising and whether the digital future is a blessing or a curse.

And we unveil the winner of this years Royal Society of Literature Ondaatje Prize. The £10,000 prize is given for a book of the highest literary merit -fiction, non-fiction or poetry best evoking the spirit of place. This years short list are Madeleine Bunting, William Fiennes, Daniyal Mueenuddin, Kachi A Ozumba, Iain Sinclair and Ian Thomson.

MON 23:00 The Essay (b00sbx30)
The King Returned

Episode 1

The first of five programmes in which Jonathan Sawday paints a picture of Restoration Britain in five essays: the politics, the science, the culture and the philosophy which made this an extraordinary period of history.

In May 1660 Charles II was invited to return to England and take the throne lost by his beheaded father. A dozen years of Puritan rule were overthrown with a resuming of vigorous cultural life. There was an ebullient outpouring of baroque music, liberated playwriting, scientific progress, stately architecture and courtly entertainment that became known as The Restoration.

But in the 1660s how much was really "restored" of pre-Cromwellian Britain - and how much was actually newly introduced? How much that was restored had really never gone away?

Professor Jonathan Sawday attempts to retell the story of the Restoration in a new way - through five essays, each of which provide a shapshot of cultural and intellectual life.

Caricatured as excessive in today's costume drama, this was a time that was also energetic, experimental and outward looking. From the foundation of the Royal Society, to the construction of St. Paul's, to the new contractual nature of government - this was a period which marks the creation of crucial aspects of modern Britain.

Producer: Hannah Godfrey and Matthew Dodd.


MON 23:15 Jazz on 3 (b00sbx32)

This set includes a new work by Thomas Stronen that was commissioned by the Cheltenham Jazz Festival.

TUE 21:15 Night Waves (b00sbxcb)
Why People Lie, Hal Prince, Elia Suleiman, Science and Literature

Anne McElvoy discusses the human propensity for lying with psychologist Dorothy Rowe. Dorothy says we lie because we are frightened of being humiliated and being rejected. They are joined by Lord Falconer, the Barrister, politician and former Lord Chancellor in the Blair government in a discussion on lying in public and private spheres.

Broadway director Hal Prince is also a guest - he was responsible for the premier productions of Cabaret, A Little Night Music, Evita and many more, and is staging his new musical in London before it opens in Broadway this autumn. Called 'Paradise Found', it's based on a true story about the Shah of Persia visiting Vienna in the 1870s, and how he - embarrassingly - fell in love with the Emperor's wife.

Palestinian film director Elia Suleiman talks about his new film, The Time That Remains. It's a personal account of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, based on his father's own diaries and his mother's letters, it's centred on his home town of Nazareth. Suleiman mixes tense scenes of hardship and fear with almost Buster-Keaton type sight gags. And in a trademark of his films - Suleiman plays himself.

As Craig Venter 'builds life' in the laboratory and conjures up Frankenstein connotations, Anne is joined by Professor Judith Hawley to look at the influence of science on literature and literature's effect on the way we view science.

Jonathan Sawday uses this event to tell the story of how the body returned to public life in so many forms - women on stage, sexualised poetry, the return of fashion, the first attempts at surgery - it symbolised a pushing aside of the Godly people who had ruled under Cromwell.
Producer: Hannah Godfrey and Matthew Dodd.

Llyr Williams (piano)

Llyr Williams first worked with Shenyang in 2007, when Llyr accompanied Shenyang through the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition. Shenyang went on to be crowned overall champion.

Shenyang created this programme as a special tribute to one of his greatest musical heroes: Hans Hotter, the legendary German bass-baritone. Shenyang says "I never met Hans Hotter but, even so, I learned a lot from him. He had a very special style of singing which you don't find today."

WED 19:00 Performance on 3 (b00sgyqr)
Perth Festival 2010

Part 1

Presented by Mary Ann Kennedy

In this live broadcast the BBC Singers bring choral music with a Scottish flavour to the Perth Festival, drawing both on the riches of Scotland's musical past and on its present.

From the 16th century, music by the great Robert Carver - monk at Scone Abbey - and by his contemporaries Robert Johnson and David Peebles.

Scotland's more recent cultural history is represented in a strikingly virtuosic setting of William Dunbar's words by Thea Musgrave (born in Edinburgh), a haunting Celtic lament by James Macmillan, music by Master of the Queen's Music, and modern-day Orcadian settler, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies.

Completing the programme, the UK premiere of a piece by the BBC Singers' Associate Composer Gabriel Jackson - a seascape setting words by Estonian poet Doris Kareva, a choral classic by Ralph Vaughan Williams, works with a Celtic slant by Rutland Boughton and Granville Bantock, and - a real curiosity - settings, in German, of Robert Burns' words by the great German Romantic composer Robert Schumann, who was born 200 years ago this year.

Thea Musgrave: Rorate coeli
Robert Johnson: Gaude Maria virgo
Robert Carver: Agnus Dei Mass Fera pessima
Peter Maxwell Davies: Sea Runes
Granville Bantock: 3 Hebridean Songs (Sea Sorrow; Song to the seals; Milking Song)
Gabriel Jackson: A ship with unfurled sails (UK premiere)

WED 19:45 Twenty Minutes (b00m0g62)
Entrance to the Underworld

High Pasture Cave on the island of Skye is one of an entirely new category of archaeological site - shedding light on the life, death and thinking of Iron Age people. It's marked by fire and feasting. In mid-winter, sacrifices of as many as 50 piglets could be made, their bones deposited in the cave, along with many other gifts for the gods, even what are possibly the bone pegs from a lyre. But there was also death here, in this cave with its underground stream. The bones of a woman, a very young baby and a foetus were offered up, covered by stones on a ritual stairway to the depths. The foetal bones had been mixed with the bones of a fetal pig. Isotope analysis showed that the woman and the babies were related. Archaeologists have long been puzzled about the fate of the Iron Age dead. What light can the cave, its offerings and its underground stream shed on this mystery?

Historian Dòmhnall Uilleam Stiùbhart of Edinburgh University's Celtic department explores the site with archaeologist Steven Birch. Fraser Hunter, a curator of the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh and Orcadian archaeologist Martin Carruthers, help us understand the fascinating lives and afterlives of our Iron Age ancestors. We'll also hear music on replica Bronze age instruments from Scottish musicologist John Purser.

WED 21:15 Night Waves (b00sbxnf)
Michael Burleigh, Sean Sculley and Abstraction, Opera: Do the Words Matter?

Rana Mitter talks to the Nobel prize winning economist Muhammad Yunus about his new book, Building Social Business and his ideas as to how capitalism can address pressing human needs. He says the theory and practice of this idea is growing in the business, academic and philanthropic worlds.

Rana talks to the historian Michael Burleigh about the moral perceptions of different sides in the Second World War

Rana and the critic Anna Moszynska consider the work of Sean Scully one of our most acclaimed abstract artists whose new show, the first in London for four years, opens later this week.

And in that most sublime of musical forms, opera, how much do the words really matter? Rana and his guests the critic Susan Hitch, artistic director of Tete-a-Tete opera company Bill Bankes-Jones and the music academic Roderick Swanston discuss librettists, singing in English and the vexed question of surtitles.

Why were Pepys, Charles II and Christopher Wren all pre-occupied by lenses? Because the microscope, with Robert Hooke's help, was one of the great novelties of the age for the learned. Jonathan Sawday charts how science became one of the unexpected beneficiaries of Charles II's Restoration and how the visual impact of science - the world seen through a lens - offered new ways of thinking about the world around them.

Producers: Hannah Godfrey and Matthew Dodd.

And Matthew interviews film maker Michael Winterbottom about his intensely violent new work, 'The Killer Inside Me'. It depicts the life of a violent sociopath whose public face is as a small town deputy sherrif. Cultural historian Joanna Bourke and film critic Nigel Floyd review the film and discuss the portrayal of extreme voilence in cinema.

Matthew also discusses Samuel Beckett's fiction writing as two of his lesser known novels and stories are published, Malone Dies and More Pricks than Kicks. He's joined by critic Mary Bryden and actor Peter Marinka to find out whether Beckett should be better known for his prose output.

FRI 23:00 The Essay (b00sgz15)
The King Returned

Episode 5

Jonathan Sawday paints a picture of Restoration Britain, on the return of Charles II to the throne in 1660. Why did the idea of the contract become so pervasive in society?

The King may have been invited home to his rightful place, but some things had changed for good. After 1649, any king had to be aware of the idea of a contract of with his people. After all, that was philosopher Thomas Hobbes' defence of monarchy in the 1650s - and it culminated at the end of this period with John Locke's famous Social Contract and the 1688 Glorious Revolution. Jonathan tells the story of why the idea of the contract become so pervasive in political and mercantile Restoration society.

Producer: Hannah Godfrey and Matthew Dodd.


FRI 23:15 World on 3 (b00sgz17)
Tamikrest are a group of desert nomads from Mali, Niger and Algeria. They have been branded the "spiritual sons" of Malian super-group Tinariwen, and tonight join Lopa Kothari in session. Producer James Parkin

Tamashek is the language of the Touareg, a nomadic people inhabiting the Saharan desert across various countries, including Niger, Algeria, Libya and Mali. The name Tamikrest is Tamashek for junction or connection or coalition. The seven members of Tamikrest, who originate from Mali, Niger and Algeria, came together to express their Touareg identity through Ishumar rock, the Touareg rebel music.

The band's leader and songwriter, 27-year-old singer/guitarist Ousmane Ag Mossa explains: "When Touareg children arrive in the public Malian schools, they are soon confronted with an administration that refuses to see the realities our people suffer. Our hope is to have the world listen to our revolutionary songs, which reflect the harsh life conditions that our people endure."

Tamikrest's songs also praise the desert, a place that is fundamental for the Touareg. And it was in the silky dunes of Essakane at the 2008 Festival of the Desert where they met Dirtmusic, a group of rock'n'roll veterans from the USA and Australia. With their tents side by side not only did they share Touareg tea, but they also found themselves jamming together and discovered that their ideas and music fit perfectly.

The two bands stayed in touch, and Dirtmusic later returned to Mali to record their own album "BKO" which features Tamikrest, Fadimata from Tartit as well as Lobi Traoré (to be released in the spring of 2010). Soon after, Dirtmusic's Chris Eckman returned to Mali to produce Tamikrest's debut album at the famous studio Bogolan in Bamako.
