Presented by Margaret Juntwait

Wotan faces a dilemma over his desire to protect his son Siegmund, and the Valkyrie Brunnhilde defies Wotan's wishes, causing her own incarceration within a magic circle of fire.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01rw0t9)
Gordon Jacob and Joseph Horovitz (1895-1984 and 1926-)

The Impact of War!

This week Donald Macleod is joined by composer Joseph Horovitz, who not only talks about his own career, but also that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob; both have had a significant impact upon students at the Royal College of Music, and both have been prolific in writing concertos, and music for wind and brass. Gordon Jacob composed over 400 works, and was so successful in his lifetime, he was asked to write music for the coronation of the Queen. Jacob spent much of his time tutoring at the Royal College of Music, where he taught Joseph Horovitz. Horovitz likewise went on to teach at the Royal College of Music, and has composed such notable works as his Clarinet Sonatina, the theme music to Rumpole of the Bailey and Lillie, plus a work which won him an Ivor Novello Award, his cantata Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo.

Gordon Jacob came from a military background, and retained wonderful memories of his childhood in London with barrel organs, dancing bears, and German bands. Writing music for wind and brass bands became a profitable and enjoyable enterprise for Jacob, including his "An Original Suite for Military Band". A military life was not for Jacob however, though he did spend time serving on the frontline in WWI. It was during the Great War that he lost one of his closest brothers, Anstey, and he dedicated his First Symphony to him.

Joseph Horovitz, who joins Donald Macleod to talk about his music, and that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob, was also a victim of war, having to flee Austria at the beginning of WWII. Horovitz's formative experiences influenced his biographical Fifth String Quartet. Arriving to safety in Britain, Horovitz had to learn a new culture and language. This adopting of other languages is also present in his music, such as exploring the musical language of jazz in the Jazz Concerto for Piano, Strings and Percussion.

The Rest is Noise

Episode 1

The Rest is Noise.

Louise Fryer presents a week of programmes with the BBC Concert Orchestra performances from the Rest is Noise Festival - a year long survey of the twentieth century in music held at the the South Bank Centre in London.

Today's concert is titled the "Death of Nostalgia", and includes both music and poetry from World War 1. Charles Hazlewood conducts the BBC Concert Orchestra and introduces the poetry, read by Laurence Fox, from the stage. Plus complementary music from the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

The title "The Rest is Noise" is taken from a blog and book of the same name by American Alex Ross, in which he surveys the Twentieth Century - its themes and events through music.

Gustav Holst A Somerset Rhapsody
George Butterworth A Shropshire Lad
Julius Harrison Worcestershire Suite
Ralph Vaughan Williams Symphony No.3 (Pastoral)

The BBC Concert Orchestra is a partner in the festival along with the Philharmonia Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, the Royal College of Music and others. This week in the afternoons we've a chance to hear their contributions so far, covering roughly the first part of the twentieth century. The concerts range from this one looking at the First World War, to the rise of Hitler and Nazism in 1930's Berlin called "Seven Deadly Sins" (Tuesday), and on Wednesday we cross the Atlantic to New York to discover "Hidden Voices" - featuring music by African American composers of the time, from Duke Ellington at the Cotton Club in the roaring 20's to a Symphony by William Grant Still.

Friday brings the themes together: "Kurt Weill - Berlin to Broadway". Part of the Berlin music scene up to the early 30's, Weill kept one step ahead of the Nazis and arrived - via Paris and London - in New York in 1935. The concert includes Weill's 2nd symphony, the only music he rescued from Berlin in 1933 and includes a set of Weill's broadway music under the title "A Stranger here myself" - a song from the musical "One Touch of Venus" which opened in New York in 1943.

Live from Lincoln Cathedral
Presented by Ian Skelly

Colin Walsh, Organist Laureate of Lincoln Cathedral, puts the cathedral's mighty 'Father Willis' organ, completed in 1898, through its paces in a spectacular programme of the virtuoso French music which is his particular speciality. He includes works by several of the most significant composers in 20th-century French organ literature, as well as the 19th-century Cesar Franck - Belgian by birth, but the father-figure of the 20th-century French organ style.

Langlais: Incantation pour un jour saint
Tournemire: Consummatum est

MON 22:45 The Essay (b01rw0z9)
Anglo-Saxon Portraits

Episode 26

The Anglo Saxons are somewhat out of fashion, yet the half millennium between the creation of the English nation in around 550 and the Norman Conquest in 1066 was a formative one.
This major series rediscovers the Anglo-Saxons through vivid portraits of thirty key individuals.

Pauline Stafford assesses Queen Emma's life which was nothing short of eventful.

Her life was a roller coaster of Anglo-saxon politics. She was a young Norman woman in 1002 when she crossed the English Channel from Northern France to marry the English King, Aethelred. She's often remembered as the woman who made the fateful link between England and Normandy; her marriage being the first step towards the Conquest of 1066 and the end of Anglo-Saxon England.

After the defeat of Aethelred by the Danish conqueror, Cnut, she then became Cnut's wife. Few other Anglo-Saxon royal wives can match her importance during Cnut's reign.

Producer: Sarah Taylor

MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01rw0zc)
Hello Skinny in session with Steve Beresford

Brainchild of drummer Tom Skinner, the 'cosmic psych-dub jazz-mutants' Hello Skinny embrace tricks of technology via an acoustic jazz inheritance. The music is futuristic, but feels warmer and more organic than you might expect - a natural result of Skinner's absorbed experiences with acts ranging from the improv of Alexander Hawkins through to European/African fusion outfit the Owiny Sigoma Band. In this exclusive session for Jazz on 3, Skinner's quintet includes Shabaka Hutchings on sax and Nick Ramm on keys, plus special guest Steve Beresford on electronics, who also lends some old compositions for re-imagination.

Presenter: Jez Nelson
Producers: Peggy Sutton & Chris Elcombe.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01rw1mr)
Gordon Jacob and Joseph Horovitz (1895-1984 and 1926-)

The Pursuit of Careers Not in Music

This week Donald Macleod is joined by composer Joseph Horovitz, who not only talks about his own career, but also that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob; both have had a significant impact upon students at the Royal College of Music, and both have been prolific in writing concertos, and music for wind and brass.

Both Gordon Jacob and Joseph Horovitz had false starts. Horovitz originally set out to be an artist, whereas Jacob intended to be a journalist, though both came round to the idea of composing in the end. Jacob studied at the Royal College of Music, under Stanford and Howells, and was soon composing works such as his "William Byrd Suite". But it wasn't long after his years as a student, that he was making his Proms first appearance, conducting a performance of his own First Viola Concerto.

It was the influence of his teacher Gordon Jacob which made Joseph Horovitz want to compose. Jacob's prolific output as a composer of concertos influenced Horovitz's own work in that area, such as his Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra. And again, like Jacob, Horovitz soon found himself writing music for the stage, such as his popular score for "Alice in Wonderland".

The Rest is Noise

Episode 2

The Rest is Noise. With Louise Fryer. A week with the BBC Concert Orchestra from the year-long festival on London's South Bank.

Today "The Seven Deadly Sins" - Berlin in the 1930s and the rise of Nazism.

The BBC Concert Orchestra and André de Ridder perform works by three composers labelled as "degenerate" by the Nazis in 1930s Germany.

Kurt Weill's "Seven Deadly Sins" was his last pre-war collaboration with Berthold Brecht after the successes of the "Threepenny Opera" and "The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny", which the Nazis defined as "degenerate" art. Weill escaped Germany in 1933, settling for a while in Paris, where the "Seven Deadly Sins" had its premiere; then Weill moved westward, first to London and later New York.

With the label "degenerate" around his neck, Hindemith knew his opera "Mathis der Maler" (Mathis the Painter) was not going to be performed in pre-war Germany, but he'd synthesised some of the musical ideas into a symphony, which was peformed in Berlin in 1934. Still, he was never accepted by the Nazis and fled west, becoming a US citizen in 1948.

Schoenberg didn't need an official denouncement for him to be sure he wasn't going to be welcome at home once Hitler came to power, and by 1941 he too, was a US citizen, based on the West Coast.

Plus complementary music from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

TUE 22:00 Night Waves (b01rw1ym)
Howard Brenton, BRICS Countries, Napoleon, Promised Land

Howard Brenton discusses his new play The Arrest of Ai Wei Wei with Philip Dodd. Based on illicit interviews, it's a dramatization of the dissident artist's arrest by the Chinese authorities two years ago, when he was incarcerated for 81 days. The play was Ai Wei Wei's idea, but can he still be a figurehead for freedom of expression in China?

Are the BRICS countries set to challenge the World Bank, and realise a power shift from the West and Northern hemispheres to the East and South? Philip Dodd discusses the implications of a possible new BRICS development bank, which together with the recent election of the Argentinian pope, means these emerging countries may be moving a step closer towards providing an alternative political structure.

How land reforms brought in by Napoleon in Spring 1813 heralded a profound social change that still affects us today, New Generation thinker Jonathan Healey explains.

And Promised Land, the new film by Gus Van Sant about fracking, the controversial technique to release natural gases from under the earth's surface. Our reviewer Lionel Shriver asks whether a film with an environmental message can still make good drama.

Anglo-Saxon Portraits

Aethelred the Unready

The Anglo Saxons are somewhat out of fashion, yet the half millennium between the creation of the English nation in around 550 and the Norman Conquest in 1066 was a formative one.
This major series rediscovers the Anglo-Saxons through vivid portraits of thirty key individuals.

Aethelred's name is a combination of the Old English word aethel, meaning 'noble, excellent', and raed, meaning 'advice, counsel'. Simon Keynes probes the life of this Anglo-Saxon monarch who ruled over one of the most turbulent times of English history.

This week Donald Macleod is joined by composer Joseph Horovitz, who not only talks about his own career, but also that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob; both have had a significant impact upon students at the Royal College of Music, and both have been prolific in writing concertos, and music for wind and brass.

Gordon Jacob was something of a celebrity in his local community. He was now being asked to compose a number of choral and vocal works, including his arrangement of Psalm 23, "Brother James's Air". Jacob seemed to work best when he was composing for a specific person or instrument in mind, which can be heard in his Clarinet Quintet, dedicated to Frederick Thurston and the Griller Quartet. But this was now the time of the Second World War, and he was required to boost morale with arrangements for the BBC's ITMA programme, arranging works such as the overture to Rossini's "Barber of Seville".

When it was first suggested to Joseph Horovitz that he went to study music at the Royal College of Music under Gordon Jacob, all he knew about Jacob was his music for ITMA; although Jacob soon came to loathe his association with the programme. After his studies at the RCM, Horovitz soon found himself taken up with the stage, including a post as Music Director at the Bristol Old Vic, conductor of the orchestra for the Ballet Russes, and conducting ballet for the Festival of Britain. Opera has also been a particular passion for Horovitz, and today we'll hear his operatic Scena: "Lady Macbeth".

The Rest is Noise

Episode 3

The Rest is Noise. With Louise Fryer. A week with the BBC Concert Orchestra from the year-long festival on London's South Bank. Today, "Hidden Voices" - African-American inspired music from the first part of the twentieth century

Henry F. Gilbert drew on folk music in America in his own music and his most enduring work begins the programme today. The work draws on Creole themes, and was reinvented as a dance piece which was successfully performed in Frankfurt at a contemporary music festival in the 1920's.

William Grant Still was an African American composer, who grew up in Little Rock, Arkansas in the 1900s and ended up arranging band music after the first World War. He studied for a while with Edgar Varese, but continued to compose and arrange film music, taking him to Los Angeles in the 1930s.

The great Duke Ellington was a band leader at the Cotton Club and others in New York in the roaring 20's and later on in the 1950's revisited his spiritual home of Harlem in New York for his "Harlem Suite".

Keith Lockhart conducts the BBC Concert Orchestra, and they're joined by the Nu Civilisation Orchestra for a Duke Ellington celebration - including hits from the Cotton Club days - in the second half of the concert.

WED 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01rw2fg)
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra - Korngold, Bruch, Wagner, Strauss

Live from the Lighthouse, Poole
Presented by Catherine Bott

Bruch's Violin Concerto, played by Vadim Gluzman with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Litton, plus favourites by Korngold, Wagner and Strauss.

Korngold: Overture to a Play
Bruch: Violin Concerto

8.10: Interval

8.30:
Wagner: Prelude, Act 3; Dance of the Apprentices; Procession of the Mastersingers (Die Meistersinger non Nurnberg)
R Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier Suite

Vadim Gluzman, violin
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra
Andrew Litton, conductor

Korngold's Schauspiel Overture acts as a curtain-raiser to his own glittering career as one of Hollywood's leading composers - he was just fourteen when he wrote it

Bruch's first Violin Concerto is one of the most popular and performed of any in the repertoire, beloved by both violinists and audiences alike. Bruch's greatest gift was for writing haunting, deeply expressive melodies, and here he makes the gorgeous adagio the work's centrepiece. The orchestral writing, too, fully complements the solo part with its richness and drama.

Die Meistersinger represents Wagner's only mature attempt at comic opera. In the excerpts performed, we begin four hours into the opera, with the Prelude to Act III, and music that encompasses darkness and mystery using full-bodied brass and gently glowing strings that rise to a passion. Next is the lively Dance of the Apprentices and finally the grand Procession of the Mastersingers in their full glory.

Der Rosenkavalier was an instant success with its Mozartian farce and flurry of sweet and saucy waltzes. The music abounds in orchestral virtuosity and symphony orchestras had long enjoyed playing selections from the opera before a more established suite finally coalesced and was first performed in 1944, over 30 years after the opera's creation. It captures the most celebrated and voluptuous moments from the original score, from the opening bold and erotic horn call to its most famous waltzes, full of melodic splendour and harmonic richness.

Producer Anthony Sellors.


WED 22:00 Night Waves (b01rw1yw)
Tanika Gupta, BC Johnson, Corin Throsby & Laurence Scott, Rick Gekoski

Rana Mitter talks to the playwright Tanika Gupta. Her new play for the RSC, The Empress, opens at the Swan in Stratford on 17th April. It explores the little known stories of Indian immigrants to late Victorian society: from the ayehs, the nannies brought to England by British families returning home from Imperial adventures, to the first Indian MP; the lascars (sailors) and Abdul Karim, the servant presented to Queen Victoria as a gift on her Golden Jubilee.

New Generation thinkers Corin Throsby and Laurence Scott propose the idea that crowd-funding and social media are changing the relationship of artists and their audiences. Is there a new, democratised patronage and is audience led production diversifying or damaging creativity?

Rana discusses the allure of the missing work of art with the writer Rick Gekoski. Are some works of art more interesting in their absence? Clementine Churchill famously destroyed the portrait of her husband made by Graham Sutherland. Can the destruction of art ever be justified?

Ian Macmillan and Julia Jordan join Rana to discuss the films of the experimental writer BC Johnson who would have been eighty this year.

Producer: Natalie Steed.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b01rw22b)
Anglo-Saxon Portraits

Edward the Confessor

The Anglo Saxons are somewhat out of fashion, yet the half millennium between the creation of the English nation in around 550 and the Norman Conquest in 1066 was a formative one.
This major series rediscovers the Anglo-Saxons through vivid portraits of thirty key individuals.

Stephen Baxter creates a vivid portrait of Edward the Confessor. By any standards, Edward the Confessor lived a remarkable life, and left a still more remarkable legacy. He was a central figure in a period of turbulent politics, characterised by factional intrigue, rebellion, invasion and conquest. He personally experienced dramatic reversals in fortune, spending 25 years in exile before reigning as king of England for almost as long, through moments of periods triumph and humiliation. His posthumous life was similarly eventful . His death triggered the sequence of events that led to the Norman conquest; and his place of burial, Westminster Abbey, became the focal point of a cult which eventually made Edward the patron saint of the English monarchy, and the abbey a national treasure.

Producer: Sarah Taylor

Gordon Jacob and Joseph Horovitz (1895-1984 and 1926-)

Composing Music for Film

This week Donald Macleod is joined by composer Joseph Horovitz, who not only talks about his own career, but also that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob; both have had a significant impact upon students at the Royal College of Music, and both have been prolific in writing concertos, and music for wind and brass.

The 1940s and 1950s were a very busy period of composing for Gordon Jacob, writing many works for commission such as his "Trombone Concerto" for the International Trombone Association, or his "Sextet" dedicated to the memory of horn player Aubrey Brain. Yet Jacob was also active in other areas, such as composing for film. In 1947 he composed music for the film which gave Dirk Bogarde his first starring role as the charming cad, "Ester Waters".

Joseph Horovitz has also composed much music for film and television, including the series Lillie, Rumpole of the Bailey, and Agatha Christie's Partners in Crime. For many years Horovitz has also taught on the Composition for Screen course at the Royal College of Music. Yet, like his one-time tutor Jacob, Horovitz has remained with his feet firmly in a number of camps, composing music also for the radio, and the concert hall such as his "Variations on a Theme of Paganini", and his world famous "Clarinet Sonatina".

Thursday Opera Matinee

Honegger - Judith

Thursday Opera Matinee. With Louise Fryer. Honegger's "Judith".

Honegger had great sucess in Paris between the wars with his 'dramatic psalm' "Le Roi David" - "King David" - and in 1926 he collaborated with the same librettist, Rene Morax, to produce another work that is half opera, half oratorio, based on the Old Testament story of Judith and Holofernes. We only hear Judith (mezzo Paula Murrihy) and her servant (soprano Marie-Eve Munger) discussing the deed of decapitating the barbarian chief Holofernes, so there's not much onstage action, but the sound world Honegger creates suggests far more...

Plus complementary twentieth-century music from the BBC's orchestras.

BBC Scottish Symphony Orhcestra
Donald Runnicles (conductor)

Donald Runnicles and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra start a two week Scottish Orchestra collaboration on Benjamin Britten in his centenary birthday year. The anti-war Sinfonia da Requiem is perhaps reflected in Shostakovich's 9th symphony, which wasn't quite the victory march that the Soviet authorities were expecting. In the second half the Orchestra invite back the brilliant young pianist Denis Kozhukhin to play one of the most technically challenging pieces in the repertoire - Rachmaninov's 3rd Piano Concerto.


THU 20:20 Discovering Music (b01rw2jp)
Britten's Sinfonia da Requiem

Written in 1940, the "Sinfonia da Requiem" was commissioned by the government of Japan, who asked Britten to create a work celebrating the 2600th anniversary of the ruling dynasty. For his part, looking ahead in some ways to the Requiem he would write some years later, Britten, who was a dedicated pacifist, produced a kind of musical plea for peace, which uses part of the Catholic liturgy as movement headings. The overall tone of the score and its links with Christianity resulted in the Japanese commissioners feeling that the composer had rather misunderstood their wishes. Instead, the piece was first performed in America, with a personal dedication to the memory of Britten's parents.

Sheryl Sandberg, Doktor Glas, Revenge, Choucair

With Anne McElvoy. Can the success of Scandinavian TV dramas be repeated on stage? Krister Henricksson, best known in the UK for his role as Kurt Wallander in the Swedish detective series, is now appearing in the West End in Doktor Glas, an adaptation of Hjalmar Soderberg's 1905 novel performed in Swedish. Susannah Clapp reviews.

Sheryl Sandberg is the chief operating officer of Facebook, a rare woman in such a position of power. In a new book, Lean In, she describes how women unintentionally hold themselves back in their careers and encourages women to sit at the table, take risks and pursue their goals with gusto.

Saloua Raouda Choucair has her first international exhibition at Tate Modern. A pioneer of abstract art her work has remained largely unknown outside of Lebanon. Richard Cork and Karl Sharro assess her work and examine how she fits within 20th century art history.

The death of Osama Bin Laden has been called justice, and yet for the author Thane Rosenbaum we could also call it revenge. In his new book Payback he further makes the case that there is nothing wrong in seeking revenge and that it is actually indistinguishable from justice. He is joined in discussion by the author Salil Tripathi.

Anglo-Saxon Portraits

Harold Godwinson

The Anglo Saxons are somewhat out of fashion, yet the half millennium between the creation of the English nation in around 550 and the Norman Conquest in 1066 was a formative one.
This major series rediscovers the Anglo-Saxons through vivid portraits of thirty key individuals.

Comedian and presenter Clive Anderson has always been fascinated by Harold Godwinson whose life and reign came to a bloody end at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, which a thousand years on is still the most famous date in English history. In his humorous look at King Harold, he wonders why Shakespeare never chose to write a play about his life - which has all the elements of a gripping historical drama, and a great tragedy.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b01rw1n4)
Gordon Jacob and Joseph Horovitz (1895-1984 and 1926-)

An Interest in Brass

This week Donald Macleod is joined by composer Joseph Horovitz, who not only talks about his own career, but also that of his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob; both have had a significant impact upon students at the Royal College of Music, and both have been prolific in writing concertos, and music for wind and brass.

In the last decade or so of his life, Gordon Jacob was affected by failing eyesight and hearing. He once jokingly remarked that "it doesn't interfere with the enjoyment or production of music. After all, Beethoven was a great deal deafer than me, and wrote nearly as good music!" Jacob kept on working hard, and in the space of five years, composed 55 new works, such as his "Sonatina for Treble Recorder and Harpsichord", and his "Mini Concerto for Clarinet and String Orchestra".

During this final few decades in Gordon Jacob's life, composer Joseph Horovitz kept in contact. It was a period for Horovitz which saw the creation of one of his most enduring works, which also won him an Ivor Novello Award, his cantata "Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo". But like his one-time teacher Gordon Jacob, Horovitz has always relished writing music for a specific instrument or soloist in mind, such as his "Oboe Concerto", or his brass band 'test' piece "Ballet for Band".

The Rest is Noise

Episode 4

The Rest is Noise. With Louise Fryer. The BBC Concert Orchestra: Kurt Weill on Broadway - a concert sequence devised by Kim Kowalke & Keith Lockhart, from the year-long festival on London's South Bank.

Kurt Weill escaped from Berlin and the Nazis in 1933 and the only music he took with him was a draft of his 2nd Symphony. Like so many musicians and composers out of favour with the new regime in Germany, Weill headed west and made his way to New York and Broadway in particular.

In the second half of the concert we celebrate Kurt Weill's enduring legacy to music theatre in New York with songs from many of his Broadway successes.

Plus another Exile in New York. Bartok's 3rd Piano Concerto - harking back to a prewar Europe.

Weill: The New Orpheus; Symphony No. 2

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b01rw2kp)
Live from the Barbican in London

Simpson, Beethoven

Simone Lamsma plays Beethoven's Violin Concerto, after the London premiere of A mirror-fragment by young composer Mark Simpson. The BBC Symphony Orchestra's Tippett cycle continues with the Second Symphony, conducted by Martyn Brabbins.

Mark Simpson: A mirror-fragment
Beethoven: Violin Concerto

BBC Symphony Orchestra
Simone Lamsma (violin)
Martyn Brabbins (conductor)

Mark Simpson is a multi-talented BBC New Generation Artist - both a spectacular clarinettist and a composer creating unique soundworlds. The BBC Symphony Orchestra opened the 2012 Last Night of the Proms with his work, Sparks, and tonight they give the London Premiere of his richly imagined tone-poem A mirror-fragment. The young Dutch star Simone Lamsma is then the soloist in Beethoven's great Violin Concerto. Sir Michael Tippett found inspiration for the Promethean energy and structural force of his Second Symphony in Beethoven's music: the vigorously assertive opening Allegro, and balletic curlicues of the scherzo-like Presto owe much to his hero's example, while the mosaic-like orchestration of the slow movement hint at the shimmering orchestral tapestries Tippett was to explore later in his career. Martyn Brabbins conducts this latest instalment in the BBC Symphony Orchestra's Tippett retrospective.


FRI 20:20 Discovering Music (b01rw2kr)
Tippett: Symphony No. 2

Stephen Johnson explores Tippett's Symphony No. 2.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b01rw1z6)
This week The Verb is in an experimental mood with guests Sheila Heti, Philip Davenport, Steven Hall and Serafina Steer.

Sheila Heti's latest book 'How Should a Person Be' (Harvill Secker) is a 'novel from life', mixing transcripts of recorded conversations, emails and prose. Sheila explains some of the unusual techniques she employed in writing the novel, and the dangers of using your friends in fiction.

Philip Davenport has edited an anthology of Language Art, The Dark Would (Knives, Forks and Spoons Press). The Dark Would asks questions about living and not living, about the physical and the non-physical. Philip fills us in on the history of Language Art and visual poetry and Ian and Philip share their favourite work including Richard Long's circular hour long walk on Dartmoor and an the mystery of Caroline Bergvall's blanked out pages.

Steven Hall has just been announced as one of Granta's Best Young British Novelists 2013. His debut novel is the innovative Raw Shark Texts (Cannongate), An extract from Steven's Work in Progress novel, 'The End of Endings', has just been published in Granta's Best of Young British Novelists 4. Steven discusses his attraction to complex forms, how his new novel will push the boundaries even further, and most importantly, why part of the book is upside down. Steven also adds to our library of 'Books That Don't Exist', documenting the tortured publishing history of the hotly tipped 'Rice Cup Moon'.

Serafina Steer spins stories from the strings of her harp, and sings songs studded with acerbic wit. Serfina performs 'Night Before Mutiny and 'The Moths are Real' from her latest album 'The Moths Are Real' (Stolen Recordings), and tells us her influences, from Sea Shanties to Borges.

Produced by Jessica Treen.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b01rw22n)
Anglo-Saxon Portraits

The Makers of the Bayeux Tapestry

The return of the major series which rediscovers the Anglo-Saxons through vivid portraits of thirty individuals - women as well as men, famous we well as humble - written and presented by leading historians, archaeologists and enthusiasts in the field.

30. The Makers of the Bayeux Tapestry

The Bayeux Tapestry is a magnficent testament to the close of the Anglo-Saxon era and the start of the Norman period, but suprisingly little is known about who made it or where it originally hung.

In painstaking detail, Gale Owen-Crocker uncovers how the wool was sourced, dyed and spun, how the linen background was woven, how the tapestry was designed and laid out, who wrote the Latin inscription, and, perhaps most importantly, who worked the embroidery - female or male, religious or secular, professional or amateur.

A remarkable in-depth cluster-portrait of the makers of one of the most significant works of art of European history.

Producer: Beaty Rubens.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b01rw22q)
