He subsequently enjoyed a successful and varied career as a businessman, including acting as director of Mirror Group Newspapers from 1985 to 1992. He is currently president of the Radnor branch of the Campaign for the Protection of Rural Wales. he was made CBE in 1980 and a life peer in 1985. He has published acclaimed biographies of General de Gaulle, Konrad Adenauer, Marshal Petain, Harold Macmillan, and the cricketer Sir Donald Bradman,and his latest book, Gentlemen and Players, looks at the difference between amateurism and professionalism in cricket, taking as its starting point the annual first-class cricket match Gentlemen v Players, first played at Lords in 1806, and focusing on the final ten years of amateurism in the game in the postwar period.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b00n6ykm)
Lully Lullay

Lucie Skeaping explores the tender art of the lullaby, from ancient melody to Elizabethan song, and discovers how this most intimate of forms offers inspiration to the world of early music.

The act of rocking a child to sleep with a gentle tune is one of our most simple and natural forms of music-making. They are common to all cultures and ages, and though they are varied, they all share remarkable similarities. Their words are soothing, using onomatopoeic and nonsense sounds, like the 'ninna nanna' of Italy and the English 'lulla lulla'.

Often these lullabies are passed down from generation to generation and are known throughout regions and countries. But they are also transformed by this oral transmission. Many look outward to nocturnal themes, or to daily chores and the baby itself.

Religious themes are also widespread. By its very nature, the lullaby has a certain gentle spirituality and its serenity is particularly suited to the Nativity. It reminds us of Mary's pure devotion to the baby Jesus, her gentle care and the universality of this particular kind of miracle. Many Christmas carols incorporate gentle rocking rhythms, simple structures, repetitive motifs or common phrases, like the 'Lully Lullay' of the well-known Coventry Carol. Many were also well-known secular tunes that were given devotional subjects in an attempt to lead audiences away from profane subjects. Others depict holy figures in easily-recognised scenes from daily life - Joseph rocking the cradle or Mary washing nappies.

As well as featuring traditional music, and anonymous composers from around the world, the programme features pieces by English composers Anthony Holborne, William Byrd and John Bennet.


SUN 14:00 Sunday Concert (b01nwc2w)

John Wilson (conductor)

John Wilson and the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus celebrate the 50th anniversary of Croydon's Fairfield Halls, joined by Michael Collins for Finzi's Clarinet Concerto and mezzo-soprano Catherine Wyn-Rogers in Elgar's Music Makers.

In November 1962, Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother officially opened the iconic Fairfield Halls in Croydon, attending a gala concert given by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Sir Malcolm Sargent, with the legendary violinist Yehudi Menuhin. Fifty years later, almost to the day, the BBC Symphony Orchestra are back to help celebrate Fairfield at 50 in a concert of English music directed by the starry young British conductor, John Wilson. The programme kicks off with Ralph Vaughan Williams's busily buzzing overture to his incidental music for Aristophanes's play, The Wasps. Distinguished British clarinettist Michael Collins then joins the party for Gerald Finzi's Clarinet Concerto - a work he made famous when he played it in the televised final to the first ever BBC Young Musician of the Year in 1978. The concert is rounded off by Edward Elgar's great paean to the art of composition itself: his ode The Music Makers. John Wilson and the BBC Symphony Orchestra are joined by the mezzo-soprano Catherine Wyn-Rogers and the massed forces of the BBC Symphony Chorus for a suitably celebratory finale to this 50th anniversary concert.

SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b01nwcb1)
Way off the Beaten Track

Many of the most admired and popular travel writers of recent times have been revealed after their deaths as distinctly unreliable narrators, from Norman Lewis to Ryszard Kapuscinski.

Newsnight's Culture Correspondent Stephen Smith sets out on a journey to ask if it matters. Don't their polished yarns improve on reality, by giving the reader a better insight than more workaday and ambiguous 'truth' can offer? And aren't their worked-up stories simply more fun, better page-turners?

As a reporter and a travel writer, Stephen has grappled with the ethical and literary dilemmas of telling it like it is. But have other writers been as worried about such dull things as facts? He goes on a journey to explore the work of both past and present travel writers.

Producer: Charlotte McDonald.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b01806nx)
Skyvers

by Barry Reckord

1960s London. A group of lads spends the last few days at their sink London comprehensive. What will become of the would-be footballer, the ambitious chancer or the boy on probation?

Cast:
Cragge ..... Danny Worters
Brook ..... Jason Maza
Colman ..... Abdul Salis
Adams ..... Rikki Lawton
Jordan ..... Theo Barklem-Biggs
Helen ..... Joan Iyiola
Sylvia ..... Shannon Tarbet
Freeman ..... Carl Prekopp
Webster ..... Gerard McDermott
Headmaster ..... Paul Moriarty

Directed by Mary Peate

First produced at The Royal Court Theatre in 1963. Director Pam Brighton, to whom the play belongs, according to Reckord, says ' When I first came across Skyvers in 1970, it struck me as a powerful, relevant and hugely articulate work...How had Barry, a Jamaican teacher in a London comprehensive, described so accurately the alienation and rage of South London boys? The entrapment of both boys and girls bounded by sex, violence and either dull dead-end jobs or crime was described so perfectly by Barry.'

Playwright Kwame Kwei-Armah has curated new radio productions of three 20th Century plays for Radio 3's Drama on 3 and Skyvers is the last in the series. The three plays are introduced by Kwei-Armah, who describes how each of the writers influenced his own development as an actor and playwright. Kwame is currently based in Baltimore where he is Artistic Director of Center Stage Theater.

Michael Billington on Skyvers in The Guardian:

' Other dramatists such as Nigel Williams in Class Enemy went on to explore the failure of the system to cope with those at the bottom of the heap. But Reckord got there first and while it is tempting to say times have changed, new figures show that up to 16million adults today have the reading and writing skils of primary schoolchildren... a piece that proves that the best drama offers vital social evidence.'.


SUN 22:00 World Routes (b01nwcy8)
Carminho at the 2012 London Jazz Festival

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b00sq4wp)
Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767)

Episode 1

During his long and remarkably prolific life, Georg Philipp Telemann was recognised as the leading German composer of the Baroque era, whose reputation in his time, was even greater than that of his compatriot, JS Bach. He wrote a wealth of innovative music for the church, court, opera house, concert hall and private home. Telemann was an astute business man too, in tune with the changing tastes of his time. He made music more widely available by putting on regular series of public concerts and publishing collections of his own works for anyone willing and able to buy.

Telemann broke new ground with the dramatic nature of his church cantatas in a move to make them more palatable to the congregation. They were hugely successful and could be heard far and wide across Germany in years to come. As a court composer in Sorau and Eisenach, he began writing fashionable French overtures and a constant stream of instrumental music.

In the first programme, Donald Macleod features some of this early music, including a church cantata set to a text by the foremost cantata poet of the time, a concerto for four violins and an orchestral suite which draws on the popular figures of the commedia dell'arte.

Hell is Other People

Anne McElvoy chairs a debate titled Hell is Other People at the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival.

As our global population increases, the world is becoming an ever more connected place, with social media such as Facebook and Twitter encouraging us to engage with other people 24/ 7.

Does this mean we are becoming more sociable, or is hyperconnectivity and overcrowding actually making us more lonely?

To debate this crucial issue Anne McElvoy is joined by the broadcaster and former foreign correspondent Kate Adie, the clinical psychologist and best-selling author Oliver James, the Times columnist David Aaronovitch and the popular philosopher Julian Baggini.

Recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival of ideas and first broadcast in November 2012.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b01nwd8b)
TV Dinners to Roadside Diners

Adam Gopnik

Five leading American writers write about the cultural history of their favourite comfort food. Far from haute cuisine, these choices are a cake, a snack, and a dish in a box, a hearty homemade dessert and a thick gooey ubiquitous spread. The writers explore with delight and authority how these foods became American, they explain why they continue to be iconic and popular and compare regional preferences.

In this edition, New Yorker writer Adam Gopnik makes his mother's Cheesecake.
Later in the series are Joyce Maynard on popcorn, novelist Michael Cunningham on Mac n Cheese, Simon Winchester on pies and Alice Sebold on peanut butter.

Some of these foods are served at roadside diners and others are best eaten in front of the TV, curled up on the coach. Each author has a story about why his or her choice has a strong personal connection. Most were introduced to their comfort food in childhood and now they share them with their families. None of these foods are good for the waistline but each is so loved that there is little guilt about indulging in traditional mouthfuls of pure heaven.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01nwd8d)
Jack DeJohnette at the 2012 London Jazz Festival

Jez Nelson presents a legend of jazz drumming - Jack DeJohnette - recorded live with his group at the London Jazz Festival in a 70th birthday celebration concert.

Helping to carve the history of jazz for over fifty years, DeJohnette sits within the highest ranks of the establishment, having played with giants such as Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman and Keith Jarrett. A distinguished bandleader in his own right, DeJohnette's output remains abundant and in January he released his latest album Sound Travels, a recording that draws extensively on Afro-Latin rhythms. In this concert, the drummer is joined by reedsman Don Byron, guitarist Marvin Sewell, pianist George Colligan and bass player Jerome Harris.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton & Joby Waldman.

2012 Festival

Julie Bindel

Julie Bindel gives a talk arguing that sexuality is a choice at the Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival.

Whether sexuality is genetic or not goes to the heart of the ongoing debate about same-sex marriage. Are gay rights activists right to insist sexuality has biological origins, or is it a lifestyle choice as claimed by some traditionalists?

In a talk titled Not Born This Way, the feminist, lesbian, columnist and writer Julie Bindel challenges liberal thinking by arguing that sexuality is indeed a choice, and that the current scientific quest to identify a gay gene is both pointless and dangerous.

The event is chaired by Night Waves presenter Samira Ahmed and recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival 2012.

The Free Thinking festival of ideas takes place at The Sage Gateshead Friday 2 - Sunday 4 November and is broadcast for three weeks on Radio 3 from Friday 2 November.

Episode 3

With his astute business sense, Telemann no doubt had an eye to the financial advantages of publishing his own music, but he also had a genuine desire to make sheet music more readily available to anyone who could afford to buy it. Donald Macleod looks at some of the many collections Telemann published and marketed himself, including a range of chamber music for virtually every instrument in existence at the time, a collection of small-scale sacred cantatas for use in the home and the most popular of all his passion oratorios.

WED 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01nwnrz)
Live from the Lighthouse, Poole

Sibelius

Live from The Lighthouse, Poole

Presented by Martin Handley

The young rising star Benjamin Grosvenor takes centre stage with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra for Grieg's Piano concerto. Sibelius's 4th symphony opens the concert - a dark work with a sense of foreboding, but a fascinating piece. Tchaikovsky ends the programme, with his stormy take on Dante's story of the fallen lovers condemned to whirl through hell together for eternity.

Sibelius: Symphony No.4

Benjamin Grosvenor (piano)
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
conductor James Gaffigan

The fourth symphony was once considered to be the strangest of Sibelius's symphonies, but today it is regarded as one of the peaks of his output. Sibelius was proud of the work and later said "I am pleased that I did it, for even today I cannot find a single note in it that I could remove, nor can I find anything to add."

Grieg's highly lyrical and romantic piano concerto remains a favourite for both pianists and audiences alike. The final composer in tonight's programme, Tchaikovsky, was one of Grieg's admirers, and said of the work "there prevails that fascinating melancholy which seems to reflect in itself all the beauty of Norwegian scenery."

When Tchaikovsky read Dante's epic The Divine Comedy, an episode from the Inferno fired his imagination: the tale of Francesca, a young woman who has been condemned to eternal damnation because of an illicit love affair. Tchaikovsky vividly depicts the driving winds of hell before a solo clarinet launches Francesca's tale, and the music builds in a long crescendo of passion.

2012 Festival

Aliens: The Ultimate Them and Us

Another chance to hear Matthew Sweet debating how the discovery of alien life might change the way we think about humanity.

Scientists have now detected distant planets that may contain life. If we are not alone in the Universe, will this fundamentally affect how we understand ourselves and should we prepare for the consequences? Ought we to begin work on a set of truly "universal" rights or prepare to take arms against the greatest threat to our existence?

Debating how the discovery of alien life will impact our moral and philosophical universe are the best-selling science-fiction writer Stephen Baxter, whose books include the latest Doctor Who novel, the science broadcaster and journalist Sue Nelson, the futurist and neuroscientist Anders Sandberg, and one of our leading space scientists, John Zarnecki, Professor of Space Science at the Open University.

The event is chaired by Night Waves presenter Matthew Sweet and was recorded as part of Radio 3's Free Thinking Festival 2012.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b01nwf0n)
TV Dinners to Roadside Diners

Michael Cunningham

Five American writers write about the cultural history of their favourite comfort food. Far from haute cuisine, these choices are a cake, a snack, and a dish in a box, a hearty homemade dessert and a thick gooey ubiquitous spread. The writers explore with delight and authority how these foods became American, they explain why they continue to be iconic and popular and compare regional preferences. None of these foods are good for the waistline but each is so loved that there is little guilt about indulging in traditional mouthfuls of pure heaven.

Novelist Michael Cunningham, best known for his novel The Hours, wonders why he was so more attached to the macaroni and cheese that came in a box, than his mother's cooking. And he's struck by the promise that this instant food conjured up a space age world of endless leisure. He despairs that this humble dish has become an unrecognisable gourmet food in some restaurants.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01nwntt)
Live from the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Dvorak, Chopin

Live from The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

The BBC Philharmonic, conducted by Vassily Sinaisky, performs Dvorak's Carnival Overture, Chopin's Piano Concerto No 2 with Daniil Trifonov, and Schmidt's Symphony No 4.

Dvorak: Carnival Overture
Chopin: Piano Concerto No 2 in F minor

Daniil Trifonov (piano)
BBC Philharmonic
Vassily Sinaisky (conductor)

Meet Franz Schmidt, last of the Austrian Romantics. As storm clouds gathered over his native Austria, Schmidt poured a lifetime of heartbreak into his beautiful Fourth Symphony; music of profound emotion, glorious melody and some of the most tender poetry in 20th century music. Prize-winning 21-year-old virtuoso Daniil Trifonov is the perfect soloist for Chopin's youthful Second Concerto. Dvorak's colourful and exuberant overture starts the evening.


FRI 20:15 Twenty Minutes (b01nwntw)
Twenty Ways to Stuff a Cat

In a taxidermist's studio, animals are prepared for immortality: animal heads, fish, birds, mice; in museums, natural history specimens are preserved in the name of conservation and education; in galleries, artists play with notions of life, death and the stopping of time; on a computer screen, contemporary artists create wild menageries of hybrid creatures through the process of 'animangling', or digital taxidermy. From the great bagging and stuffing fever of nineteenth century sportsmen-naturalists, and the related collections of small animals arranged in meticulously detailed scenarios to the current revival of taxidermy as art - both real and virtual - as well as the growing enthusiasm for freeze-drying a dead pet, Ian Sansom explores what the urge to stuff or otherwise preserve an animal suggests about our culture, and finds out about the intricacies of the art in an Edinburgh taxidermy studio.

Ian is a literary critic and the author of The Mobile Library detective series. He has broadcast for Radio 3 on his enthusiasm for concrete, his adopted city of Belfast, bibliophilia, swimming, the cultural history of the suit and of shoes among other subjects. His next novel, the first of a new detective series, is due out in 2013.

Kate Rusby, Helen Farish, Fiona Evans

Radio 3's 'Cabaret of the word' presented by Ian McMillan, with guests Kate Rusby and Helen Farish and Fiona Evans.

Singer Kate Rusby on her writing process, why she thinks 'rhymes could power cars !', why the sea so often features in her lyrics, and her experience of collaborating with Paul Weller, amongst other artists, for her new album '20'.

Poet Helen Farish on the pleasures and difficulties of capturing music in language, writing from imagination, and her new collection 'Nocturnes at Nohant' (Bloodaxe), which explores the relationship between Chopin and the novelist George Sand. Pianist Sarah Gait performs Chopin's Prelude no 17 and his Nocturne in C Sharp Minor to accompany the poems.

Playwright Fiona Evans with a new commission, 'Rooftop Romeo' - a drama inspired by a residency on hospital wards and with nurses working in the community. Fiona shares her experience of writing about people suffering from dementia, and how they engage with poetry and music.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b01nwf0s)
TV Dinners to Roadside Diners

Alice Sebold

Five American writers write about the cultural history of their favourite comfort food. Far from haute cuisine, these choices are a cake, a snack, and a dish in a box, a hearty homemade dessert and a thick gooey ubiquitous spread. The writers explore with delight and authority how these foods became American, they explain why they continue to be iconic and popular and compare regional preferences. None of these foods are good for the waistline but each is so loved that there is little guilt about indulging in traditional mouthfuls of pure heaven.

Alice Sebold, author of the best-selling The Lovely Bones, explains her ultimate obsession: peanut butter.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b01nwf78)
Ara Dinkjian in Session

Mary Ann Kennedy with tracks from across the globe, plus a studio session with Armenian-American oud player and composer Ara Dinkjian.

Acclaimed as one of the world's leading players of the oud, the Arabic lute, Ara Dinkjian was born in the USA to parents from Armenia. With percussionist Arto Tuncboyacian he formed the band Night Ark, reinterpreting Armenian and Middle Eastern folk music in a jazz context. He is also a songwriter, and his song Homecoming (Dinata Dinata) was chosen to be performed at the closing ceremony of the Athens Olympics. He is visiting London with his Quartet for a concert as part of the London Jazz Festival.
