Daniel Hope Fiddler's Tale Part 1: Menuhin and Zukerman

In these programmes he offers a selection of recordings that reflect his life in music so far; and also which follow the story of his priceless violin - the wonderful 1742 Guarneri del Gesu, known as the "Ex-Lipinski".

The first programme offers music charting his musical life including perfomances on disc by the great Pinchas Zukerman whom Daniel heard perform in London at the age of five, and who inspired him to take up the violin. There are performances by his mentor and teacher Yehudi Menuhin and music from his adopted home city of Vienna. His choice of music also includes the original 1950s line up of the celebrated Beaux Arts Trio, with whom Daniel has also performed; and a recording from his violin hero David Oistrakh.

SUN 18:30 Words and Music (b01rygqw)
Time

Gemma Arterton and Rufus Sewell read extracts on the subject of Time, a theme which has always been popular with authors, poets and composers. From the mourning of the passing of time in poems by Shakespeare, DH Lawrence and John Milton, to the writers who play with the very concept of time. Lewis Carroll's Mad Hatter has bargained with Time for it to always be teatime, while in Kurt Vonnegut's Tralfamadore, moments in the past and future are as permanent as in the present. Martin Amis takes the idea to the extreme by writing the narrative of his novel Time's Arrow backwards! There's also time travel, from Scrooge's nocturnal visit to his past, to HG Wells's Time Machine disappearing into the future. Many composers from the classical, jazz and pop worlds have experimented with unusual or constantly changing time signatures. Guillaume de Machaut and Conlon Nancarrow go further by writing music in which music retraces its steps and goes backwards. The programme also includes music by Haydn, Messiaen, Ligeti and Pink Floyd.

Producer - Ellie Mant.


SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b01rygqy)
Staying Bright - A Century Of Stainless Steel

Has this been the Stainless Steel Age? The metal has entered the fabric of our lives in the 100 years since it was identified by Harry Brearley, a metallurgist in Sheffield, in 1913.

The poet Simon Armitage travels in this programme to the heart of stainless.

What is it? What was the first stainless steel product? Where would we be without it now: from the spring in an aerosol can to a canister containing high level nuclear waste? A skate, a kitchen sink, a surgeon's scalpel, aircraft landing gear. It's phenomenally useful, versatile, robust, rust resistant.

But ... would you make a wedding ring out of it? Would you still clad a bank in its cold, blingy armour?

Simon visits Sheffield: Outokumpu where stainless is made and Portland Works, where the first ever stainless steel knife blade was forged; Canary Wharf, in London, for its architecture; and the sculptor, Antony Gormley, who is working on a new stainless steel bodyform. With Gormley and other metal lovers, Simon finds out what stainless tells us about our time and about time itself.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b01g4vxn)
Shakespeare on 3

Shakespeare's The Tempest

David Warner is Prospero, with Carl Prekopp as Ariel, Rose Leslie as Miranda and Don Warrington as Gonzalo. Shakespeare's play of magic, romance and revenge. Broadcast as part of the Shakespeare Unlocked season.

Four hundred years after its first performance, Shakespeare's play still captivates audiences with its story of usurping brothers, monsters, magic and romance. Significantly it is also a world in which sound plays a crucial part, with Prospero's island being 'full of noises'. Prospero, the exiled Duke of Milan plots to restore his daughter Miranda to her rightful place, using illusion and skilful manipulation. A tempest brings Prospero's brother Antonio and Alonso, King of Naples to the island. Once there, Ariel and Prospero's machinations bring about the revelation of Antonio's evil cunning, the redemption of Alonso, and the marriage of Miranda to Alonso's son, Ferdinand.

Ferdinand...Al Weaver
Alonso...Paul Moriarty

10.30am
This Tuesday (23rd April) marks Shakespeare's birthday, and Sarah Walker's guest this week is the stage and screen actress, Felicity Kendal. As a child, Felicity's family moved to India, where her parents ran a touring company that performed Shakespeare plays. She became a full time member of the company at the age of twelve, playing the role of Puck in a production of A Midsummer's Night Dream. Felicity is best known to the nation as playing Barbara Good in the popular sitcom The Good Life, alongside Richard Briers. Other television roles include Rosemary (in Rosemary & Thyme), and she also starred in the 2010 series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Felicity's stage career blossomed during the 1980s and 1990s when she formed a close professional association with Sir Tom Stoppard, starring in the first productions of many of his plays. In 2006 she starred in the West End revival of Amy's View by David Hare, and more recently she appeared in The Last Cigarette (2009) and in Mrs Warren's Profession (2010). In May this year she will star in the first London revival of Relatively Speaking by Alan Ayckbourn.

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (b014qqq2)
Carl Nielsen (1865-1931)

A Free Spirit

The Danish composer Carl Nielsen stands at the helm of Scandinavian music. A master symphonist, he's widely regarded as one of the most important composers of his generation. But at the end of the nineteenth century, Nielsen's adventurous and free spirited outlook was regarded with some suspicion. In some quarters his music was deemed to be cool and academic, until his Third Symphony marked a turning point in his career, garnering praise from Nielsen's advocates and opponents alike.

Today Donald Macleod explores the reasons behind some of these differing opinions.


MON 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (b01ryt6m)
Wigmore Hall: Elisabeth Leonskaja

Live from Wigmore Hall, London

Presented by Louise Fryer

Since emerging from Soviet Russia in the 1970s, Elisabeth Leonskaja has become one of the most celebrated pianists of our time, winning audiences across the world with performances of great depth and intelligence. Today she performs two works with literary inspiration: Schumann's collection of minature 'Butterflies' is derived from the final scene from Jean Paul's novel 'Flegeljahre' which is set at a masked ball and tells of unfulfilled love and psychological transformations which are echoed in the musical transformations of the piece. The second of Liszt's Petrach Sonnets also takes a literary starting point in the poetry of the 14th-century Italian humanist whose 104th Sonnet bemoans an unattainable love. The Tchaikovsky Grand Sonata which ends the recital has no extra-musical inspiration but this 30-minute work of symphonic proportions should really be better known and in the hands of Leonskaja has surely found a ready and persuasive advocate.

Schumann: Papillons Op 2
Liszt: Petrarch Sonnet No. 104 from 'Années de pèlerinage, deuxième année, Italie'
Tchaikovsky: Grand Sonata in G major Op 37

MON 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b01ryt6p)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Episode 1

A week of programmes with the BBC National of Orchestra of Wales, featuring works by Schumann and music inspired by springtime.

Presented by Katie Derham.

The BBC NOW's Principal Conductor Thomas Søndergård made his first tour of mid and north Wales with the orchestra last month, featuring programmes infused with the breath of spring air.

They began their journey together at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, and music by Thomas's fellow Dane C.F.E. Hornemann. Hornemann was one of the great driving forces of music in Denmark in the nineteenth century, and in the 1860s he visited the evocative ruins of the royal castle at Gurre, near Elsinore. So when the Danish playwright Holger Drachmann wrote a tragedy based on the ballad of Valdemar and Tove, set in the castle, Hornemann was the natural choice to write the incidental music. His atmospheric overture has become his best known work, with its "hunting horn" motifs - though today the legend of Gurre castle is perhaps better known through a work by a different composer, Schoenberg's Gurrelieder.

Thomas also brings two spring pictures from Northern climes, where the release from dark winter is more keenly felt than in our British Isles. Sibelius's Spring Song is tinged with melancholy, whereas Glazunov's symphonic poem is altogether more cheery and colourful.

Robert Plane is Principal Clarinet with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, but today he steps forward to the front of the stage for Mozart's glorious Clarinet Concerto. Robert plays the work on the instrument for which it was originally written, the basset clarinet, with an altogether richer and warmer sound than the standard instrument.

Stravinsky's Rite of Spring closes the week on Friday, but today Thomas Søndergård conducts his Symphony in C, written over a quarter of a century later. This is the composer in his neoclassical vein, harking back to the Vienna of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. The Symphony in C may be lacking the massive orchestral force of the earlier ballets, but it's no less inventive. "My symphony is going to be Classical in spirit," Stravinsky wrote, "more concise in its form than Beethoven".

Plus more Russian music: Prokofiev's fiery First Piano Concerto with Radio 3 New Generation Artist Christian Ihle Hadland.

Finally today we've more music from North Wales, a concert from Llandudno with the BBC NOW's previous Principal Conductor Thierry Fischer. Schumann's youthful first symphony dates from 1841, the year after his marriage to Clara - it's inventive and playful, full of the joys of spring.

French Song Recital from Wigmore Hall

Live from Wigmore Hall, London

Presented by Catherine Bott

Le Plus Doux Chemin: one of pianist Graham Johnson's series of French song recitals, with music by Debussy, Faure, Satie, Roussel and the rarely-heard Andre Caplet. With English soprano Geraldine McGreevy and Dutch baritone Henk Neven. The themes of the songs are love, and gardens.

Gardens And Forests By Day:
Debussy: Le faune
Caplet: Foret
Satie: Dapheneo

Impossible Love:
Roussel: Coeur en peril
Faure: Le don silencieux
Debussy: Ballade de Villon a s'amye
Roussel: Le bachelier de Salamanque
Faure: Le plus doux chemin
Roussel: Ode a un jeune gentilhomme
Satie: 3 poemes d'amour; Adieu

8.10: Interval

8.30: Gardens And Forests By Night:
Faure: Jardin nocturne; Crépuscule

Roussel: Sarabande
Debussy: Colloque sentimental

Geraldine McGreevy (soprano)
Henk Neven (baritone)
Graham Johnson (piano)

Faure's song 'Le plus doux chemin' is the inspiration for Graham Johnson's latest series of themed recitals, exploring the tonal beauty, vibrant imagery and sense of spontaneity that is French chanson. Geraldine McGreevy is well known for her work in opera as well as in Baroque and Renaissance music, but she is also a long-time collaborator with Graham Johnson, drawing on her experience of studying in France for this recital. Henk Neven is a former Radio 3 New Generation Artist, and also studied with Graham Johnson - he sings music of all genres and eras, but his latest CD is an acclaimed recital of mostly French songs.


MON 22:00 Night Waves (b01ryt6t)
The New Common Reader

Matthew Sweet will be following in the distinguished footsteps of Samuel Johnson and Virginia Woolf. He's leading an elite party of literary explorers - Linda Grant, Aminatta Forna, Naomi Alderman and Tim Stanley on an expedition to find "the common reader" -- a being stalked by Woolf in the 20th Century and by Johnson in the 18th. Both believed that the common reader "uncorrupted with literary prejudices" was the final arbiter of "poetical honours" so it's a quest that's clearly still relevant today. The question is what does a common reader look like in our digital age? What are they reading? Where? And how? Pack your e-reader and your thesaurus of course and tune in to Night Waves and join the hunt.

Hobart

It's over the mountains, it has no major roads, it's too dangerous, or tourists don't get it at all. Five writers with a desire for travel or living elsewhere recall a city that once captured their hearts and minds for reasons of secrecy or isolation, or simply being off limits.

Novelist Nicholas Shakespeare once lived in Hobart, Tasmania, and reveals to us its convict and whaling past, and the story of a monkey...

Producer Duncan Minshull

First broadcast in April 2013.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b01ryt6y)
Marilyn Crispell Trio

One of America's most accomplished contemporary exponents of free jazz, Marilyn Crispell is capable of expansive virtuosity and a fragile simplicity. The pianist's visit to London's Cafe Oto in November 2012 provided many memorable examples of both, with her delight in delicate, quiet textures proving to be real highlights of the two improvised sets.

While touring the world as Anthony Braxton's pianist of choice, Marilyn Crispell was first introduced to UK audiences in 1985, through a series of landmark performances with his then-new quartet. Almost three decades later, she continues to excel in creating spontaneous dialogues within a small ensemble and the no-compositions context of this gig featuring UK improvisers Eddie Prévost on percussion and saxophonist Harrison Smith, shows her to be as imaginative as ever.

TUE 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b01rytgk)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Episode 2

A week of programmes with the BBC National of Orchestra of Wales, featuring works by Schumann and music inspired by springtime.

Presented by Katie Derham.

This afternoon we join the BBC National Orchestra of Wales live in their home of Hoddinott Hall in Cardiff Bay. Dutch conductor Jurjen Hempel scored a great success when he stood in at short notice last year to conduct them in Tchaikovsky's Manfred Symphony. Today he's back with the orchestra, joined by New Generation Artist Leonard Elschenbroich for Shostakovich's dark and dramatic Second Cello Concerto. It complements the life-giving celebratory energy of Schumann's Second Symphony, hailed by the "Gothic" symphonist Havergal Brian as being Schumann's "most complete vision of the orchestra".

During the concert interval, Thierry Fischer conducts three Russian fairy tales by Anatoly Liadov, the composer who would have got the commission for Diaghilev's Firebird if he hadn't been quite so slow to get started. Baba-Yaga is a ferocious witch who lives in a hut perched on chicken's legs, and Kikimora is a demon who haunts every Russian household, disturbing children with her screeching, causing death to all who witness see her spinning flax. By contrast, the Enchanted Lake is serene and tranquil - on the surface, at least; but underneath nature is equally cold and malevolent despite the stillness.

Spring comes to life in Debussy's impressionist colours. Printemps, a sensuous tone poem, was conceived in Italy during the composer's stay at the Villa Medici, after winning the prestigious Prix de Rome at the Paris Conservatoire. Jac van Steen conducts this Proms performance from 2007. You can hear more Debussyan spring in the fruits of his labours for this coveted musical prize in tomorrow's programme.

The Squire's Daughter appears in Alexander Pushkin's Tales of Belkin. It is an amusing story about the enmity that exists between two landowners, and the antics of their children, Aleksey and Liza.

Alexander Pushkin wrote Tales of Belkin in 1830, and in a fictional introduction to the collection, he claims that the author was a recently deceased landowner, Ivan Petrovich Belkin, who was a great collector of stories. He goes on to say that each of the five short works was told to him by various people, and that it was Miss K.I.T who recounted the amusing story of The Squire's Daughter.

The Squires Daughter by Alexander Pushkin was translated by Ronald Wilks. The reader is Hattie Morahan. The abridger and producer is Elizabeth Allard.

Othello, Richard Holmes, Insects, The Middle Classes

Rana Mitter will be talking to Susannah Clapp with the first review of the National Theatre's production of 'Othello', starring Adrian Lester as the Moor and Rory Kinnear as Iago.

According to David Boyle's new book, 'Broke', something is killing off the middle classes. For the first time they are struggling to enjoy the same privileges of security and comfort that their grandparents did. To discuss how this came about he is joined by the historian Selina Todd and the director of the Institute of Economic Affairs, Mark Littlewood.

The literary biographer Richard Holmes has taken to the air in his latest book - a history of ballooning and its pioneers. What inspired the intrepid balloon aeronauts of the 18th and 19th centuries and what did they discover in the airy regions? And how did they inspire writers including Jules Verne, Charles Dickens and Edgar Allan Poe?

And, as "Who's the Pest?" brings a season of insect inspired events to the Wellcome Collection in London, Rana is joined by the international explorer Mark Moffett, and Erica McAlister from the Natural History Museum, to discuss the hidden virtues of insects.

This Tuesday (23rd April) marks Shakespeare's birthday, and Sarah Walker's guest this week is the stage and screen actress, Felicity Kendal. As a child, Felicity's family moved to India, where her parents ran a touring company that performed Shakespeare plays. She became a full time member of the company at the age of twelve, playing the role of Puck in a production of A Midsummer's Night Dream. Felicity is best known to the nation as playing Barbara Good in the popular sitcom The Good Life, alongside Richard Briers. Other television roles include Rosemary (in Rosemary & Thyme), and she also starred in the 2010 series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Felicity's stage career blossomed during the 1980s and 1990s when she formed a close professional association with Sir Tom Stoppard, starring in the first productions of many of his plays. In 2006 she starred in the West End revival of Amy's View by David Hare, and more recently she appeared in The Last Cigarette (2009) and in Mrs Warren's Profession (2010). In May this year she will star in the first London revival of Relatively Speaking by Alan Ayckbourn.

BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Episode 3

A week of programmes with the BBC National of Orchestra of Wales, featuring music inspired by springtime.

Presented by Katie Derham.

Following Britten in our lunchtime concert, his teacher Frank Bridge begins and ends today's programme in seasonal colours. Spring comes forcefully into focus with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Associate Guest conductor Francois-Xavier Roth in the rhapsody Enter Spring. It's a blaze of orchestral energy and invention, inspired by the wild and windy Sussex Downs. By contrast, the tone poem Summer is more restful and balmy, all the more poignant since it was written in 1916 during the First World War when some of Bridge's closest friends were killed in action. The conductor is Richard Hickox, a particular champion of Bridge, with whom the orchestra recorded six volumes of orchestral works.

French music spans these two Bridge pillars. Thierry Fischer conducts Massenet's third orchestral suite, his Scenes Dramatiques, The three movements are all based on Shakespeare's plays: The Tempest, Othello and finally Macbeth, which takes us from the thunder and lightning of the opening through to Macbeth's death and defeat. There's more Macbeth, this time by Verdi in tomorrow's programme - from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

Spring appears once again as depicted by Debussy in this rare opportunity to hear his cantata Le Printemps, the fruits of one of his three attempts in the 1880s to win the Prix de Rome at the Paris Conservatoire. Richard Hickox conducts the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the women's voices of the BBC National Chorus of Wales. At the Paris Conservatoire, Debussy studied organ with Cesar Franck, and next we have one of Franck's most popular works, his Symphonic Variations, written just after Debussy's cantata, but a world away in spirit. Here the themes all have a rich sonority and an expressive warmth. The soloist is Radio 3 New Generation Artist Christian Ihle Hadland, here at his very best, in this impressive studio session, the first to be conducted by the BBC NOW's Principal Conductor Thomas Søndergård.

WED 22:00 Night Waves (b01ryv0s)
Englishness

Philip Dodd, Jesse Norman MP, Lord Maurice Glasman, the author Paul Kingsnorth, theatre director Lisa Goldman, Dr Joanne Parker of the English Department of Exeter University and the broadcaster and historian Michael Wood discuss the enigma of Englishness and its uses as an identity.

Whether it's Nelson and Wellington entombed in the crypt of St Paul's Cathedral, or John Bunyan and William Blake in an East London graveyard, so many towns across the country losing their centres, closing pubs , schools, post offices there are Englands to suit the optimists and pessimists conformists and non-conformists. In fact so many different Englands that it can almost seem like a case of pick your own and the devil take the rest.

Yesterday was Shakespeare's birthday and St George's Day - the day when the English celebrate their own identity - yet it is always a more muted affair than St Patrick's or St Andrew's Day. Why? The Scots are talking separation - if there is a confident Scottishness, perhaps defined by the idea of separation, what is a confident Englishness that can include all of us?

Night Waves devotes the whole of this evening's programme to England and Englishness - more its uses than abuses.

Unknown Cities

Makhachkala

It's over the mountains, it has no major roads, it's too dangerous, or tourists don't get it at all. Five writers with a desire for travel or living elsewhere, recall a city that once captured their hearts and minds for reasons of secrecy or isolation, or simply being off limits.

Vanora Bennett describes Makhachkala in Russia as 'beyond the mountains', yet these days it's on the brink of enormous change...

LSO - Stravinsky's Apollon Musagete and Oedipus Rex

Live from the Barbican Hall, London

Presented by Martin Handley

In a special concert for his 70th birthday, Sir John Eliot Gardiner conducts two works by Stravinsky on ancient Greek subjects. The ballet Apollon musagète (Apollo, Leader of the Muses) focuses on Apollo's role as the patron of music and poetry, and is written in an elegant and restrained neo-Classical style. Sergei Diaghilev, enamoured by the score's classical beauty, described it as 'music not of this world, but from somewhere above'. Oedipus Rex, based on Sophocles' tragedy, is an extremely powerful and original work for the theatre or concert hall, but Stravinsky by contrast, described it as an assemblage of 'whatever came to hand', from the sounds of Baroque oratorio and Italian opera to Wagner's music dramas.

Simon Schama, America in Primetime, Here Lies Love, Basti

With Anne McElvoy.

Good historical writing is a matter of evidence, interpretation - and imagination. Simon Schama's collection of novellas Dead Certainties: Unwarranted Speculations explores the relationship between history and imagination by recreating the various stories surrounding two historical and much discussed deaths. Simon Schama joins Anne to discuss his foray into literature, and the controversy it caused amongst historians.

As a new series starts on BBC 2 looking at American Primetime TV, Simon Schama and Alan Yentob discuss how popular American TV series from I Love Lucy through to The Cosby Show and Sex and the City have reflected American social history. They are joined by American TV Executive Caryn Mandabach who helped create many of the biggest Primetime hits, including The Cosby Show, to question how far these TV dramas are reliable social documents.

Kamila Shamsie, one of Granta's Best Young Novelists, reflects on Intizar Husain and his masterpiece, Basti, a vivid fictional account of Pakistan from partition to the present that has made its author one of the frontrunners for this year's Man Booker International Prize.

The musician and artist David Byrne has written a musical about the life of Imelda Marcos, the former first lady of the Philippines. Its being staged in New York as an immersive theatre event set in a disco. David Darcy reviews.

This Tuesday (23rd April) marks Shakespeare's birthday, and Sarah Walker's guest this week is the stage and screen actress, Felicity Kendal. As a child, Felicity's family moved to India, where her parents ran a touring company that performed Shakespeare plays. She became a full time member of the company at the age of twelve, playing the role of Puck in a production of A Midsummer's Night Dream. Felicity is best known to the nation as playing Barbara Good in the popular sitcom The Good Life, alongside Richard Briers. Other television roles include Rosemary (in Rosemary & Thyme), and she also starred in the 2010 series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Felicity's stage career blossomed during the 1980s and 1990s when she formed a close professional association with Sir Tom Stoppard, starring in the first productions of many of his plays. In 2006 she starred in the West End revival of Amy's View by David Hare, and more recently she appeared in The Last Cigarette (2009) and in Mrs Warren's Profession (2010). In May this year she will star in the first London revival of Relatively Speaking by Alan Ayckbourn.

FRI 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b01rytgr)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales

Episode 4

A week of programmes with the BBC National of Orchestra of Wales, featuring works by Schumann and music inspired by springtime.

Presented by Katie Derham.

Our week celebrating Spring concludes with a breathtaking performance of Stravinsky's ground-breaking ballet, The Rite of Spring. This year marks the centenary of the first performance in May 1913 in Paris - when a riotous reception marked the moment that music changed for ever. The only rioting from this performance with conductor Thierry Fischer is the applause by the St. David's Hall audience in Cardiff.

Before that, we catch up with the BBC NOW and Principal Conductor Thomas Søndergård on their recent springtime tour of North Wales. Sibelius is always a favourite with Thomas, and he opens this concert from Bangor with his first set of Scenes historiques - three vibrant musical pictures from Finnish history, of vital nationalist importance at a time of increasing oppression by Russia. As in Monday's programme, Principal Clarinet Robert Plane takes the solo spot, this time with the concerto by Radio 3's composer of the week, Carl Nielsen, for whom the clarinet was capable of being "simultaneously warm-hearted and completely hysterical, as mild as balm, and screaming like a tramcar on poorly greased rails". Rest assured that orchestra and soloist live up to the composer's promise. Similarly, Beethoven's ever popular Fifth Symphony doesn't disappoint, in this electric performance to a capacity audience at the Pritchard Jones Hall at the University of Bangor University. Such was the popularity of this concert that last-minute would-be concert-goers were turned away as the hall was completely full.

To complete the week, we turn for the final time to our featured composer Robert Schumann and another iconic crowd-pleaser, his Piano Concerto. The soloist in this concert from the Brangwyn Hall in Swansea was John Lill, here at the very peak of his expressive power, shaping the phrases with superlative authority. A recording very definitely not to be missed.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b01ryv11)
The Songs of Molly Drake, Keith Ridgway, Ben Marcus, Chistopher Green

Ian's guests this week are Gabrielle Drake, Keith Ridgway, Ben Marcus and Christopher Green

Nick Drake was a musician and song-writer, whose unique style led critics to wonder about his influences - he died when he was only twenty-seven. It now transpires that Nick's mother Molly was also a song-writer, and her music and poetry have just been released for the first time. Actress Gabrielle Drake, Nick's sister, discusses Molly's writing and the influence she had on their creativity. The album 'Molly Drake' is out now (Bryter Later).

Keith Ridgway's latest novel is the multi-layered and unpredictable 'Hawthorn and Child' (Granta). He's here with the first in our commissions on the idea of 'Fairy Tales for Mid-life', asking what happens to our lives if we stop trying to make stories out of them.

The novelist Ben Marcus's latest strange world is The Flame Alphabet (Granta), which imagines a place where words have a dangerous power, and language, particularly that spoken by children, can be deadly. Ben discusses the difficulties of communicating across the generations.

Christopher Green is a performance artist whose characters include the much loved Tina C and Ida Barr. Christopher presents a song from his latest incarnation, 'The Singing Hypnotist', he also discusses the language of hypnotism throughout history, which he researched as 'Artist in Residence' at the British Library. The Wellcome Trust are funding him to continue developing and researching the act.

Produced by Faith Lawrence.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b01ryv13)
Unknown Cities

Holguin

It's over the mountains, it has no major roads, it's too dangerous, or tourists don't get it at all. Five writers with a desire for travel or living elsewhere, recall a city that once captured their hearts and minds for reasons of secrecy or isolation, or simply being off limits.

Simon Calder recalls the small-scale delights of Holguin in Cuba. It' so different to the capital city, but worth the detour - if you can get there!

Producer Duncan Minshull

First broadcast in April 2013.
