She has recently been seen in the third series of BBC1's Life of Riley. She has also starred in a number of one-off dramas, including Von Trapped, Goodbye Mr Steadman, Hot Money, Blood Strangers and Miss Marple-The Mirror Cracked, as well as the Just William series, in which she played Mrs Bott.

Other stage roles have included Masha in The Seagull, Jenny in Arnold Wesker's Roots at the National Theatre, Dabby Bryant in Our Country's Good, and the lead in the West End comedy An Evening with Gary Lineker.

Caroline studied ballet as a child, and remembers dancing to Chopin's Prelude No.7 In A, played by her mother, a talented pianist. Her other private musical passions inclde Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto, which helped her through an emotional low point in her life; the overture to Mozart's Marriage of Figaro, which she thinks is one of the most thrilling pieces of music ever written; one of Canteloube's sensuous Songs of the Auvergne; an extract from Britten's opera A Midsummer Night's Dream, which she saw at Glyndebourne; and a Spanish Dance by Granados, arranged for classical guitar by Segovia., which reminds her of peaceful summer evenings in the country surrounded by her family.

SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b00tx2gy)
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.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b00wfrrp)
Gilead

by Marilynne Robinson adapted for radio by Mike Kenny

Reverend John Ames (Roger Allam) is nearing the end of a long life. His son is still a young boy, the product of a late flowering love. Ames knows he will never see his son grow to be a man and, given that he owns nothing and lives in a tied church house, all he can pass on is what he knows and the life he has lived. So, the letter he writes to his son is both a memoir of a life lived, and the journal of the present in which it is being written.
The tale is set in the 1950s, but takes us back through generations of preachers as far as the American Civil war, and projects into a future in which we now live.
Into Ames's life comes Jack Boughton, (Elliot Cowan) the wayward son of his best friend (Colin Stinton). Jack was baptised by Ames, and named after him. He feels a particular responsibility for this prodigal, but has never been able to like him. A charmer, Jack appears to woo both Ames wife, Lila (Elizabeth McGovern) and son John, and the old man struggles with the feelings stirred by the younger man. His very presence makes him feel his age.
We witness a good man wrestle with bad thoughts. It makes for an experience that is both surprising and deeply satisfying without leaving the few streets of a sleepy Midwest town.

Ames ..... Roger Allam
Lila ..... Elizabeth McGovern
Boy ..... Taran Stanzler
Glory ..... Nancy Crane
Boughton ..... Colin Stinton
Jack ..... Elliot Cowan

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01fhyxg)
Frederick Delius (1862-1934)

Delius and His Fight for Freedom

Celebrating the 150th year since the composer's birth, Donald Macleod is joined by the violinist Tasmin Little and cellist Julian Lloyd Webber, to discuss the life and music of Frederick Delius. Journeying from Delius's birth to death, Donald Macleod traces the composer's battle with his father, his jaunts off to Norway, Germany and Florida, his marriage to Jelka Rosen and his eventual death caused by syphilis which he contracted in a Parisian brothel. Tasmin Little and Julian Lloyd Webber provide fascinating insights not only into performing some of the concertos and sonatas by Delius, but they also discuss the composer's incorrect labelling as British, the mystery behind Delius's possible illegitimate son, and their own experiences of working with Eric Fenby in performing works by Delius.

Delius right from the start was never going to be what his father wanted. Young Fritz, later Frederick, had no interest whatsoever in following his father's footsteps in running a business, but instead yearned to express himself in music. Landscape and nature would prove to be especially important as a stimulus for Delius, as can be heard in so many of his works including On Hearing the First Cuckoo in Spring, and North Country Sketches.

Delius eventually managed to persuade his father to allow him to leave home, and go to Florida to manage an orange plantation there. One of the works he composed during this period of travel away from England, was Over the Mountains High. Julian Lloyd Webber discusses his arrangement of this song for cello and piano. Delius would later then move to Danville, Virginia, where he wooed the local population, especially the ladies, with his performance of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto. Tasmin Little gives her own thoughts on the Violin Concerto by Delius.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b01fhyxs)
Luxury in an Age of Austerity

Philip Dodd explores our passion for luxury in an age of austerity. Is it a sin or simply the inevitable expression of our human nature? How has our understanding of luxury changed over the centuries? Should we embrace it or shy away? To examine these questions Philip is joined by Giles Fraser, who found himself in the spotlight during the controversy over the Occupy protest at St Paul's; Chris Sanderson, who writes for Luxury Briefing; the author of Luxury Fever, Robert Frank; Maxine Berg who's an expert on luxury in the 18th century; and the historian, Michael Scott, who's made a study of luxury in the Ancient World.

Producer: Zahid Warley.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b01s4f75)
The Case for Doubt

Mark Vernon on Political Doubt

Mark Vernon on political doubt.

"Forget that life is enveloped not just by known unknowns but unknown unknowns, and you will fall like Icarus from the sky".

In the Essay this week, five contributors - journalists Mark Vernon, Madeleine Bunting, Alastair Campbell; scientist Susan Greenfield, and historian Jennifer Michael Hecht - make The Case for Doubt - the idea that political, religious, and scientific doubt, even self-doubt, though sometimes troubling, is much more useful and valuable than fixed opinions and beliefs.

In this first Essay on doubt in politics, author and broadcaster Mark Vernon argues that a dislike of doubt in politics implies a loss of faith in politics, and that politicians - for their sake as well as ours - should stop cultivating delusions of omnipotent power.

Producer David Coomes

First broadcast in April 2012.

Frederick Delius (1862-1934)

Delius, Grieg, and a Bottle of Akvavit

Celebrating the 150th year since the composer's birth, Donald Macleod is joined by the violinist Tasmin Little, and cellist Julian Lloyd Webber, to discuss the life and music of Frederick Delius.

Delius had now left Florida, paying his own way as a teacher of music. His father was impressed that his son had been able to support himself through music, so he finally agreed to fund young Fritz in a years study in Leipzig. Delius's experiences in Florida, especially listening to the plantation workers singing, would stay with the composer for the rest of his life. This is reflected in his Florida Suite. Once in Leipzig, Delius met a number of Norwegians studying there, and would often take trips to Norway. He set many songs using Nordic texts, including Summer Eve and Longing.

Through the influence of Grieg, Delius would be allowed to continue his musical activities past one year, and ended up in Paris, associating with the likes of Faure, Ravel, Gauguin and Munch. During this period he composed a song cycle called Maud, heard now in part, in its first ever recording arranged for cello and piano. Also during the early 1890's, Delius composed a symphonic poem, which is the first work a paying public heard by Delius - Paa Vidderne.

The Case for Doubt

Susan Greenfield on Scientific Doubt

Susan Greenfield on scientific doubt.

"Scientists inhabit a tilting and inconclusive world; doubt is as natural to us as breathing, even at the moment of seeming break-through".

Doubt in science is tonight's subject in a series of Essays on The Case for Doubt, in which five contributors argue that doubt is a valuable and meaningful strength, and not a crippling and negative weakness.

Baroness Susan Greenfield, a scientist who specialises in the physiology of the brain, argues that doubt among scientists should be 'as natural as breathing', even when breakthroughs occur, and that doubt in science should be integral not so much to what scientists do, as to how they think.

Frederick Delius (1862-1934)

Delius Meets Jelka Rosen

Celebrating the 150th year since the composer's birth, Donald Macleod is joined by the violinist Tasmin Little, and cellist Julian Lloyd Webber, to discuss the life and music of Frederick Delius.

Delius was enjoying life greatly in the 1890s. Whether visiting the odd Parisian brothel, or partaking in the odd séance, his music at this time displays a youth and vitality, such as the Violin Sonata in B. Tasmin Little and Julian Lloyd Webber discuss the importance of remembering what Delius was like as a young and attractive man, and also the mystery surrounding Delius's brief return to Florida to possibly seek out his illegitimate son.

The influence of Paris, the city of lights, can be heard in Delius's music, such as the orchestral work Paris. His songs set to French words by Verlaine, such as Il pleure dans mon Coeur, had even Delius's supporter Grieg complaining that it was too erotic. It was in Paris that Delius would contract syphilis, and in the song, Through Long Long Years arranged for cello and piano, Julain Lloyd Webber argues his belief that Delius knew by this stage that he'd caught the disease.

Louise Fryer presents the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra under Martyn Brabbins in a recent concert from Glasgow City Halls. The inspiration for Thomas Wilson - one of Scotland's finest twentieth-century composers - in his St Kentigern Suite was the Glasgow coat of arms which depicts the five miracles of Glasgow's patron saint. Nicolas Altstaedt, currently one of Radio 3's New Generation Artists, performs Shostakovich's gritty and virtuosic cello concerto; and the concert finishes with the First Symphony by his fellow countryman and member of the so-called 'Mighty Handful' in Russia, Alexander Borodin.

WED 22:00 Night Waves (b01fjwlm)
Jonathan Haidt, Mozart's Sister, Hubris, Misterman

Liberals want gentle dogs, and conservatives want obedient ones, argues social and cultural psychologist Jonathan Haidt in his new book The Righteous Mind.

On Night Waves tonight, he'll be talking to Matthew Sweet about how the business of dog-choosing, which may seem frivolous, speaks to our deep moral instincts. And those instincts don't just govern our decision making on dogs, they govern what we eat, how we see our neighbours, how we vote, how we regard people with different political opinions. They'll be discussing why moral instinct is at the heart of human decision making, how it is partly to blame for the current rift between left and right in American politics, and how he hopes to heal that rift.

Music critic Hilary Finch has the verdict on a new film which re-imagines the early years of Mozart's sister, Maria Anna. She was a prodigy in her own right and idolised by her more famous brother, but almost completely forgotten by history with her work being completely destroyed by her tyrannical father.

Also, to mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, Night Waves explores the nature of hubris and its relation to engineering innovations and knowledge advancement.

And Enda Walsh, writer and director of Misterman, the one-man play starring Cillian Murphy opening soon, discusses God, sin and the famous Irish murder case which formed the basis of the story.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b01fjwlp)
The Case for Doubt

Madeleine Bunting on Religious Doubt

Madeleine Bunting on religious doubt.

"Doubt is a glorious reminder of our limitations as human beings, of how suspicious we should be of certainty".

Journalist and writer Madeleine Bunting makes the case for doubt in religion - why religious doubt is a 'glorious reminder' of our limitations as human beings, why we should always be suspicious of the certainty that breeds intolerance, and how the doubt she so feared as a child has now become a useful ally.

Madeleine Bunting is the third of five contributors making The Case for Doubt - that it is much more meaningful than certainty and much more valuable than fixed opinions and beliefs.

First broadcast in April 2012.

Frederick Delius (1862-1934)

Delius Settles Down at Grez-sur-Loing

Celebrating the 150th year since the composer's birth, Donald Macleod is joined by the violinist Tasmin Little, and cellist Julian Lloyd Webber, to discuss the life and music of Frederick Delius.

By 1903, Delius agreed to marry Jelka Rosen and settle down at Grez-sur-Loing, giving up his Paris flat where he met other women. The garden and landscape at Grez was reflected in many works Delius composed there, such as Summer Night on the River. Julian Lloyd Webber and Tamin Little discuss the rather complicated relationships within the household at Grez, believing that Jelka, contrary to popular belief, really did rule the roost.

About a year after his marriage, Delius began his large scale work for soloists, chorus and orchestra, based on the writings of Nietzsche - A Mass of Life. Performances of Delius's works were gradually taking place more far afield, in Norway, Germany and England, and in 1907 Delius met the conductor Thomas Beecham, who would prove to be one of his biggest advocates. But soon Europe would be plunged into the First World War, and Delius and Jelka would flee Grez for England. During this war period, Delius composed his Double Concerto for Violin and Cello, which Tasmin Little calls a 'Love Concerto'.

Thursday Opera Matinee

Smetana - The Bartered Bride

Louise Fryer presents the Thursday Opera Matinee, which this week features an unusual version of Smetana's The Bartered Bride in German translation. Nikolaus Harnoncourt conducts the Chamber Orchestra of Europe with an all-star cast at his Styriarte Festival in Graz, Austria in 2011.

Considered a major contribution towards the development of Czech music, The Bartered Bride is a comic opera which was premiered in Prague on 30 May 1866. Set in a country village, it tells the story of how, after a late surprise revelation, true love prevails over the combined efforts of ambitious parents and a scheming marriage broker. Czechs think of the opera as quintessentially Czech in spirit: it features many folk-like dances such as the polka and the furiant. This recording from last year's Styriarte Festival in Graz, Austria is the first production of the opera in the German translation by Emanuel Züngel who was commissioned directly by Smetana to translate the libretto.

After the first two acts of the opera today (you can hear Act 3 tomorrow) there's more from recent concerts by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, including Tchaikovsky's famous Rococo Variations.

Feminism

Anne McElvoy and guests with a special programme on feminism: writing, philosophy and the body.

Doris Lessing's radical novel The Golden Notebook was published fifty years ago this month. Extraordinary and shocking in its subject matter: mental breakdown, motherhood, sexual liberation and communism, as well as its unusual, fractured structure, it mixed personal concerns with political intent. The 1960's, 1970's and 1980's saw a flowering of overtly feminist fiction from the likes of Angela Carter, Margaret Atwood, Margaret Drabble and Marge Piercy whilst the early part of the twenty first century has seen the personal memoir and life writing rise in popularity with writers like Lorna Sage, Rachel Cusk and Janice Galloway using their own lives as source material to produce powerful, and often rawly exposing literary works. But does a focus on the personal diminish political impact or are contemporary women writers and readers even interested, any longer, in feminism as a subject?

Anne is joined by Susannah Clapp the author of "A Card from Angela Carter", the writer Janice Galloway and literary critic Suzi Feay.

The American feminist Naomi Wolf recently wrote that there needed to be a re-figuring of the feminist movement. She called for a return to the enlightenment feminism of Mary Wollstonecraft after the blind-alley of Victorian "angel in the house" moral feminism and the existentialism of Simone de Beauvoir. What's needed, she says, is a new "global feminism".

Anne discusses whether the philosophical under-pinnings of feminism need adjustment with the philosophers Nancy Bauer and Meena Dhanda the feminst activist and writer Bidisha and Charlotte Vere founder of the think tank Women On.

And as some UK feminists campaign for a ban on the advertising of cosmetic surgery and against what they see as challenges to hard won rights, Anne and her guests consider the question of whether such demands are infantilising or whether in this, and other areas of life, women need greater protection.

The Case for Doubt

American poet and historian Jennifer Michael Hecht on doubt. "If we are interested in truth, and in our own freedom, we ought to celebrate that which convinces us to doubt".

Long Desc
Jennifer Michael Hecht on doubt.

"If we are interested in truth, and in our own freedom, we ought to celebrate that which convinces us to doubt".

The American poet and historian Jennifer Michael Hecht reflects on doubt as 'a beautiful thing' in a world where knowing is celebrated more than doubting. Hecht, who has written a history of Doubt, argues that if we are truly interested in freedom and truth, our fixed opinions and beliefs will start giving way to doubt.

This is the fourth of five Essays on The Case for Doubt - political, religious, and scientific doubt ... concluding with self-doubt.

First broadcast in April 2012.

Frederick Delius (1862-1934)

Delius and Eric Fenby

Celebrating the 150th year since the composer's birth, Donald Macleod is joined by the violinist Tasmin Little, and cellist Julian Lloyd Webber, to discuss the life and music of Frederick Delius.

With the First World War now over, Delius was keen to promote a number of concerts of his music in England. Many of his works were included in these concerts, including the two wordless vocal miniatures for unaccompanied choir, To be sung of a Summer Night on the Water. Delius was now becoming popular, not least of all with 281 performances of his music for the play Hassan.

Delius also turned his attention to another concerto, this time for Cello, which guest Julian Lloyd Webber has recorded using the same instrument which premiered the work. This concerto was one of the last works Delius was able to complete unaided. Guest Tasmin Little also discusses the final violin sonata, a work which was completed with the help of Eric Fenby, and chats about whether this music is true Delius or not?


FRI 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b01fjyjp)
East Neuk Festival 2012

Leopold String Trio, Christian Zacharias

Pianist Christian Zacharias, now a regular artist-in-residence at the East Neuk Festival teams up with the Leopold String Trio for one of the highlights of the 2011 festival. Brahms's joyous First Piano Quartet reflects the composer's life-long passion for Hungarian gypsy music and is contrasted with a concise, witty and assured piano sonata of Beethoven's early period. The concert is presented by Mary Ann Kennedy.

[Repeat of broadcast at 12:00 today]


FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01fjyjw)
Live from the Barbican in London

Sibelius, Dvarionas

Live from The Barbican Centre, London

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

The BBC Symphony Orchestra continues its Sibelius Cycle with Symphony No 2 & En Saga. Plus Lithuanian Balys Dvarionas's neo-Romantic Violin Concerto. Thomas Sondergard conducts.

As the BBC Symphony Orchestra reaches the fifth instalment of its acclaimed Sibelius symphony cycle this season, tonight's programme places one of the composer's most popular symphonies, the Second, alongside his shimmering symphonic poem En saga ('A Fairy Tale'). Replacing an indisposed Neeme Jarvi at short notice is Danish conductor Thomas Sondergard, who this autumn takes up a new position as Principal Conductor of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Lithuanian Balys Dvarionas's richly neo-Romantic Violin Concerto - of which tonight's soloist Vadim Gluzman is a particular champion - reflects the lyricism and folklike charm of Sibelius - whose Second Symphony was promptly taken up, rightly or wrongly, as an expression of Finnish national pride.

Sibelius: En Saga Op.9

Dvarionas: Violin Concerto UK premiere

FRI 20:20 Twenty Minutes (b01fjyjy)
The Light in Darkness

In summer the sun barely sets, bringing long nights of partying and heavy drinking. But in Lapland, as winter closes in, the lights go on, not to be extinguished until the sun finally begins to rise again above the horizon nearly three months later. Some find the seemingly endless darkness forbidding, but others find it comforting, enjoying the way the starry blackness allows their minds to play over thoughts of the infinite...

Programme makers Hannu Karisto from Finland and his Swiss colleague Jean-Claude Kuner were shortlisted last year in the prestigious Prix Italia for their contemplative documentary feature exploring the pleasures and profound pessimism that this ineluctable seasonal flux brings on. In this English language version of the programme first broadcast by Finnish radio, the programme makers travel to the far north of the country in both seasons to catch the spirit of those 'endless days and nights'.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b01fjykb)
The Case for Doubt

Alastair Campbell on Self-Doubt

Alastair Campbell on self-doubt.

"Self-doubt that leads to resolution of the doubts can be a remarkable source of energy and creativity".

In the last of five Essays making The Case for Doubt, journalist and broadcaster Alastair Campbell, acknowledging his reputation as a hard man while Tony Blair's spokesman and strategist, admits that self-doubt has always been an essential part of his make-up. But reflecting on Galileo's assertion that self-doubt is 'the father of all invention', he argues that it should be a creative rather than a crippling experience.

This ends the series The Case for Doubt, in which five contributors have argued that Doubt - though sometimes troubling - is meaningful and valuable, and not negative and weak.

First broadcast in April 2012.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b01fjykd)
Session with Po' Girl

Mary Ann Kennedy with new tracks from across the globe, plus Canadian roots band Po' Girl in a studio session.

They call their style 'urban roots' and it has elements of folk, country and jazz. Po' Girl are Allison Russell and Awna Teixeira, both singers and multi-instrumentalists, joined by Mikey 'Lightning' August on vocals, drums and keys and Chris Merrill on electric bass.
