SAT 15:00 Saturday Classics (b03b2g04)
Sound of Cinema: Christopher Lee

Film star Christopher Lee has played a huge number of roles and is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Count Dracula in Hammer Horror films and as Saruman in Lord of the Rings. As part of the Sound of Cinema season, he talks about the music that has inspired him. #BBCSoundofCinema

The great British actor, one of the foremost "Draculas" of the silver screen; star of The Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit, and of countless British films, shares his passion for music - and in particular opera - on Radio 3's Saturday Classics; recorded as part of the BBC's Sound of Cinema Season. As Sir Christopher says at the beginning of his programme, "he is often asked to talk about his life in film, but it is rare that he is given the opportunity to indulge his passion, and links his with the world of opera". His great grand-parent's family included professional opera singers, living and working in Australia in the mid 19th century (his great grandmother was known as the "Tasmanian Nightingale"). It is from them that Christopher has inherited his love of opera. Indeed, as Christopher Lee tells us, very nearly pursued a career as an opera singer himself, encouraged by the Swedish tenor Jüssi Bjorling who over-heard him singing in a bar with some friends.

Sir Christopher has chosen to present a selection of recordings highlighting some of the finest voices of the 20th century - some of whom he has known as friends. Tenors, baritones and basses singing Puccini, Verdi, Wagner and Offenbach, From Enrico Caruso, Ezio Pinza and Lauritz Melchior to Sherrill Milnes and Jonas Kaufmann.

SAT 23:15 Hear and Now (b03b2g0b)
Sound of Cinema

Robert Worby explores the relationship between film, sound and contemporary music.

Karlheinz Stockhausen's electronic work Two Couples was created for the BBC-commissioned film In Absentia directed by the Quay Brothers, who cut their experimental animation to the music.

This is followed by Toru Takemitsu's soundtrack for Masaki Kobayashi's 1964 horror film Kwaidan which uses distorted recordings of cracking ice and wood to enhance the drama on the screen; musician and writer David Toop and film scholar Peter Grilli celebrate this powerful and innovative score.

British composer Michael Finnissy has been influenced by cinematic editing techniques throughout his career and has written music for several silent films including Jean Vigo's A propos de Nice from 1930, one of the pieces included on a recent release by the New Music Players.

The role of sound in film editing is explained by Hollywood editor Walter Murch who also discusses the influence of musique concrete on his work in such films as The Conversation and THX 1138.

And the programme ends with an excerpt from American composer Michael Gordon's Decasia, a collaboration with filmmaker Bill Morrison, who uses slowed down and decayed archival footage from the early 20th-century in a meditation on human mortality.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b03b2h1k)
Sound of Cinema: Philip French

It's quite possible that Philip French has seen more films than anyone else on the planet. Obsessed with cinema since the age of four, he has been reviewing films for the Observer for the past fifty years, as well as writing for many other papers and publishing several critically acclaimed books about cinema.

He talks to Michael Berkeley about the role of the composer in the cinema, his late flowering love of Beethoven string quartets, his lifelong delight in the singing of Ruth Etting; and his greatest film music memories.

His music choices are all associated with film ? from Disney's Fantasia; through The Ride of the Valkyries used so memorably in Apocalypse Now; to Miles Davis and avant garde composer Harry Partch.

Philip French sees at least nine films a week ? that's getting on for 20,000 over his career. Michael Berkeley asks him, how important is music in making a film stick in the mind?

Producer: Jane Greenwood. A Loftus production for BBC Radio 3.


SUN 13:00 The Early Music Show (b03b2h1m)
Sound of Cinema: The Harpsichord and Film

As part of the BBC's Sound of Cinema season, Lucie Skeaping presents a profile of the harpsichord in film scores. #BBCSoundofCinema

Lucie looks back on the pioneering work of Wanda Landowska in stimulating a renewed interest in the instrument in the first third of the 20th Century, and how the distinctive sound of the instrument quickly found a use in the cinema. She considers how the harpsichord has been used in film to suggest a sense of the past; a sense of the present; and how its created a particularly effective colour in the world of horror films.

Featured film scores include: "Wuthering Heights"; "Papillon"; "Restoration"; "Henry V"; "Love Story"; "Rosemary's Baby"; "The Vampire Lovers"; "Pirates of Caribbean"; "The Corpse Bride" and "Amelie".

For Sound of Cinema, a selection of poetry, prose and music inspired by the movies. Poets and composers have been associated with the cinema since it began well over a hundred years ago. In the early years Russian poet Mayakovsky, Jean Cocteau, W.H. Auden and Bertolt Brecht were all involved as were the composers William Walton, Erich Korngold, Max Steiner and Elmer Bernstein.

In Words and Music at the Movies poems include Tony Harrison's 'Continuous', Carol Ann Duffy's 'Big Sue and Now Voyager', EE Cummings's 'your slightest look' (heard in Woody Allen's 'Hannah and her Sisters') and Roger McGough's 'If life's a lousy picture, why not leave before the end?' with music from Michael Nyman, Mozart, Schumann, Bernard Herrmann, Aubert, Miles Davis, Nino Rota, Jerry Goldsmith and Ennio Morricone.

The readers are Barbara Flynn and William Hope.


SUN 19:45 Sunday Feature (b01nzp92)
Wilde's West Coast Collection

Oscar Wilde expert Thomas Wright spent several years examining the books that were auctioned off for next to nothing from Wilde's personal library after his dramatic fall from grace at the end of the 19th Century following his arrest for gross indecency.

In various private and public collections in the UK he discovered books with interesting inscriptions and annotations - and he tried to construct a sort of "bookshelf biography" which told the story of Wilde's life and literary career through the books he read. The marginalia revealed a lot about Wilde's influences, his tastes and his relationships. But these books represented only a fraction of those sold off in 1895. Some ended up in far flung corners of the world and in this Sunday Feature, Thomas Wright goes in search of Wilde's West Coast Collection.

Tom begins his journey with Oscar Wilde fans in a gay bar in Los Angeles before taking in the delights of Venice Beach and travelling to the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library where he discovers a collection of books which reveal some less familiar aspects of Wilde's life, art and character.

The books, housed in a giant vault to help protect the Oscar Wilde markings and marginalia, include a compilation of musical hall songs called Dans La Rue by Aristide Bruant - the legendary singer-songwriter who had met Wilde during his trip to Paris in 1891.

There's Wilde's copy of Lord Ronald Gower's A Pocket Guide to the Public and Private Galleries of Holland and Belgium which reveals much about his passion for art, and some of his artistic tastes. The notes in it attest to Wilde's keen interest in painters such as Velasquez and Rembrandt.

Thomas analyses some of Wilde's collection of the classics, finds a copy of The Picture of Dorian Gray inscribed to Lord Alfred Douglas and discovers new material about his Irish nationalism and his links to Gladstone, Asquith and the Liberal Party. He even finds a book that belonged to Wilde's wife, Constance.

"The most fascinating book I found in LA was Wilde's copy of the "Eighty Club" pamphlet. Wilde's interest in party-politics shows us an unfamiliar facet of his life - he was a man who famously "lived more lives than one", and his party-political life deserves to be appreciated along with all the others," says Thomas Wright. "The book proved that Wilde was an active member of a Liberal Party think-tank; and that he socialised with the prominent members of the party," he adds.

Among those he meets during his journey are fellow Oscar Wilde expert Tracey Connell and C Robert Holloway - award-winning author of a novel in which he corresponds with the ghost of Oscar Wilde. And to help analyse Wilde's West Coast Collection, Thomas meets up with Oscar Wilde's grandson - author, journalist and editor of Wilde's letters, Merlin Holland.

Wilde's West Coast Collection is produced by Ashley Byrne and is a Made in Manchester Production for BBC Radio 3.

First broadcast in November 2012.


SUN 20:30 Drama on 3 (b039yhwb)
Votes for Women

Zoe Tapper and Samuel West star in Elizabeth Robins's play, first performed in 1907 and written to support the cause of women's suffrage.

Admired Conservative MP Geoffrey Stonor is relishing his engagement to the ebullient young heiress Jean Dunbarton until a chance encounter with the charismatic Vida Levering, an advocate of women's suffrage, appears to threaten them both - not just politically, but personally too.

Produced and directed by Marion Nancarrow

Votes for Women is a suffragette play, originally performed in 1907 at the Court Theatre (now the Royal Court), which remains both modern and surprisingly controversial. Writer Elizabeth Robins, an American actress, was hugely admired by London audiences at the time, most notably for her performance as Hedda Gabler. A philanthropist and doyenne of the literati, she was also famed for having pulled a gun on George Bernard Shaw when he made a pass at her! Votes for Women was originally written as a novel - Robins having done her research by interviewing women about their lives (this forms the middle of the play, set at a rally in Trafalgar Square). It was turned into a play when the suffragette movement realised the power of theatre to affect public opinion and, shortly after its run in London, Robins was instrumental in setting up the Actresses' Franchise League.

Golden Age of Hollywood

Music for the Talkies

"Sound of Cinema" continues as Donald Macleod explores the soundtrack of The Golden Age of Hollywood, in the company of conductor and film music expert, John Wilson.

The Golden Age is one of the richest periods in cinematic history. It runs from the rise of talking pictures in the 1930s to a loose conclusion following the demise of the Hollywood studio system in the 1950s. An astonishing statistic of this era is the sheer number of films being produced. In its heyday, Hollywood was releasing around 400 pictures a year, creating not only a roster of stars including Errol Flynn, Bette Davis and Olivia de Havilland but also a remarkable collection of award winning scores, produced by the likes of Max Steiner, Franz Waxman, Erich Korngold, Dimitri Tiomkin, Miklos Rozsa, Alfred Newman and Bernard Herrmann.

As a new medium, it fell to this first generation of composers to establish a formula for using music in "talkies". Given the ongoing aesthetic discussion over how sound should be used and the technical challenges as to how it might be achieved, writing film music was a demanding occupation. Time equalled money, so a composer needed to be versatile and write quickly, generally under pressure from the producer. On the plus side, help was on hand as facilities were in-house. A studio's music department sported teams of orchestrators, copyists and an extensive music library. A composer's music would be delivered to the recording studio, often with the ink still drying on the page for the studio orchestra to play.

In the first episode we hear from the so-called "father of film music", Max Steiner, creator of music for the original "King Kong" and one of the most successful films in the history of cinema "Gone with the Wind" as well as two more European émigrés, Erich Korngold and Franz Waxman. Later responsible for the award winning scores of "Sunset Boulevard" and "A Place in the Sun", early on in his career Waxman reveals a talent for musical illustration in the horror flick "The Bride of Frankenstein".

MON 20:15 Twenty Minutes (b03b2k8k)
Conversations with Directors and Film Composers

James Horner

As part of the BBC's Sound of Cinema season, the first of a series of interval features exploring the relationship between film composers and directors. Tom Service talks to ten time Academy Award nominee James Horner. Horner was born in Los Angeles but spent his early years in London and studied at the Royal College of Music before returning to California to pursue a doctorate in composition. Having initially intended composing concert music he fell into the film industry more or less by accident. His award winning collaboration with James Cameron has spanned three decades, from Aliens in 1986 to the biggest selling soundtrack of all time Titanic, and most recently 2009's Avatar, and he has also regularly worked with Ron Howard (A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13), and Mel Gibson (Braveheart, Apocalypto). James reflects on the unique nature of these relationships as he reflects on his career, and Mel Gibson and James Cameron share their thoughts on what his music has brought to their films. #BBCSoundofCinema.

MON 22:00 Night Waves (b03b2k8p)
Simon Schama, Beeban Kidron, End of Human Rights

Philip Dodd talks to the historian Simon Schama about his History of the Jews and to the film director Beeban Kidron about her new documentary exploring the impact of the internet on children and young people. She argues that the adult world has abandoned its children to the seductive pull of the digital world.

And are we living through the end times of Human Rights? Philip talks to Stephen Hopgood who argues that global power shifts and social changes mean that we can no longer rely on a shared comfortable language of human rights or indeed expect the world to agree that there is a Universal set of rights to be asserted. Clive Stafford Smith of Reprieve offers a more optimistic view.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b03b2k8r)
Heffer on British Film

It Always Rains on Sunday

As part of BBC Radio 3's Sound of Cinema, a week of essays written and presented by historian and columnist Simon Heffer on classic British taboo-breaking films which depicted a society changed profoundly by war.

In this first programme Heffer explores the Britain depicted by director Robert Hamer in what he describes as his 'stunning film noir' "It Always Rains on Sunday".

"The period between 1945 and 1955," says Heffer, "was when the British cinema started to grow up. The films reflected a world that existed rather than one self-appointed moral arbiters wished existed. The treatment of class became radically different. Hamer brought a mathematician's precision and a poet's touch to his work. He was the most original directorial talent working in Britain, whatever fans of Michael Powell and David Lean might argue. He combined acute visual sense with a regard for and an understanding of the English language, matched by none of his rivals."

The cinema of the 30s was nakedly and unashamedly escapist in a way that the cinema of the late 40s and early 50s - in an age of lost innocence and social upheaval - simply couldn't be. Taboos it had left untouched could no longer be ignored if film was to remain relevant. Families had broken up because of bereavement and adultery. Subjects considered unsuitable for a cinema audience - marital breakdown , criminality, revenge, failings in the justice system, and disability - suddenly became popular with British screenwriters and studios. Social realism was the order of the day. And in "It Always Rains on Sunday" from 1947, Hamer depicts a gritty world of shrewish housewives, spivs, chancers, petty thugs and avuncular but determined policemen who patrolled the streets of London's tough Bethnal Green district.


MON 23:00 Jazz on 3 (b03b2k8t)
Sound of Cinema: Jazz and Film

As part of Radio 3's Sound of Cinema season, we explore why jazz and improvising musicians continue to be fascinated by, and draw inspiration from, the medium of film. The programme includes a special session of music freely improvised in response to silent films.

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

Carter Burwell is famed for scoring the films of the iconic Coen Brothers, from 1984's Blood Simple to Raising Arizona, Fargo, The Big Lebowski, and No Country for Old Men; they have one of the longest standing collaborations in the industry. Burwell was born in New York City where in the 1980s he played in a number of punk bands and worked at the New York Institute of Technology where he was first approached by the Coen's. He talks to Tom about how he goes about approaching each score, for the Coen Brothers as well as other regular collaborators Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga ? Breaking Dawn, Gods and Monsters), Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation), and Martin McDonagh (In Bruges, Seven Psychopaths). #BBCSoundofCinema.

TUE 22:45 The Essay (b03b2n4l)
Heffer on British Film

The Browning Version

The cinema of the 30s was nakedly and unashamedly escapist in a way that the cinema of the late 40s and early 50s - in an age of lost innocence and social upheaval - simply couldn't be. This was a period when British cinema was forced to embrace change and reflect reality. Taboos it had left untouched could no longer be ignored if film was to remain relevant. Families had broken up because of bereavement and adultery.

In Heffer on British Film, Simon Heffer puts the case for five films from the decade after the war which show British cinema dealing with gritty social issues and dramatic high standards before the 60s were underway - including It Always Rains on Sunday (1947), The Long Memory (1952), Mandy (1953), Yield to the Night (1956) and the subject of today's essay - The Browning Version (1951).

Anthony Asquith's adaptation of Terence Rattigan's unforgettable play. The Browning Version, outlines personal, marital and institutional failure with a clarity and honesty unusual for the time, if not unprecedented. A heart-breaking story of remorse and atonement, The Browning Version is a classic of British realism and the winner of best actor and best screenplay honours at the 1951 Cannes Film Festival. It's set in an English public school on the last day of the summer term. The once-brilliant classicist, Andrew Crocker-Harris, played by Michael Redgrave, is about to leave his post after 18 years because of ill-health, to take a less demanding job and begins to feel that his life has been a failure. His students despise him - the boys and staff alike nick-named him 'The Crock' - and his wife Millie, played by Jean Kent, is carrying on an affair with another master at the school.

Diminished by poor health, a crumbling marriage, and the derision of his pupils, the once brilliant scholar is compelled to re-examine his life when an unexpected gesture of kindness from a pupil of a copy of Browning's translation of the Agamemnon overwhelms him and brings a ray of hope. He must confront his utter failures as teacher, husband, and a man. Long-repressed emotion, disappointment and humiliation are released and the way is paved for a series of surprising revelations and decisions.

Producer: Mohini Patel.

Golden Age of Hollywood

Wartime in the Dream Factory

"Sound of Cinema" moves towards the Second World War as Donald Macleod and guest John Wilson consider how the conflict affected the Hollywood Film industry. While profits at the box office soared, further opportunities arose from the war effort encouraging a successful alliance between film director Frank Capra and composer Dimitri Tiomkin. Meanwhile, two newcomers arrived: Miklos Rozsa and Bernard Herrmann, a man with some rather different ideas on how the music for a film should be produced.

Australian Art at the RA, Rory Kinnear

As the largest historical survey of Australian art ever to be displayed outside Australia opens at the Royal Academy of Art, Samira Ahmed talks to the exhibition's curator and to Edmund Capon, former director of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, whose television series The Art of Australia starts next month.

Actor Rory Kinnear, currently playing Iago to Adrian Lester's Othello at the National Theatre, discusses the challenges of writing his first play which has just opened at London's Bush Theatre.

Kit Davis assesses a landmark of American cinema, Michael Roemer's 1964 film Nothing But A Man. Reputedly Malcolm X's favourite movie, it was a pioneering production depicting the life of a black railroad worker in segregated 1960s Alabama. Although critically acclaimed, the film sunk into obscurity following a marketing campaign that tried to conceal the fact that the film was about African-Americans.

Roger Highfield and Eliane Glaser discuss the idea of the scientist as hero and curator of wonder as a new series presented by popular scientist Brian Cox starts on TV and a biopic of Stephen Hawking opens in cinemas.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b03b2n4n)
Heffer on British Film

The Long Memory

As part of BBC Radio 3's Sound of Cinema, a week of essays written and presented by historian and columnist Simon Heffer on classic British taboo-breaking films which depicted a society changed profoundly by war. The cinema of the 30s was nakedly and unashamedly escapist in a way that the cinema of the late 40s and early 50s - in an age of lost innocence and social upheaval - simply couldn't be. This was a period when British cinema was forced to embrace change and reflect reality.

In Heffer on British Film, Simon Heffer puts the case for five films from the decade after the war which show British cinema dealing with gritty social issues and dramatic high standards before the 60s were underway - including It Always Rains on Sunday (1947), Mandy (1953), Yield to the Night (1956), The Browning Version (1951) and the subject of today's essay - The Long Memory (1952).

The Long Memory was Robert Hamer's follow-up to the success of Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949), one of the driest black Ealing comedies ever made. Hamer wrote the script for this thriller with Frank Harvey, adapting a novel by Howard Clewes. It portrays Britain as depressed, worn out by war, and full of the poor, dispossessed, transient, and criminal. It tells the story of Phillip Davidson (John Mills) fresh out of prison after serving twelve years for a murder he didn't commit and obsessed with revenge.

An early flashback provides us with the details: a smuggling job goes sour, and Davidson is blamed for the death of a man who, in fact, is not dead. His girlfriend, Fay (Elizabeth Sellars), played a significant part in securing that conviction. She was coerced by her father to lie about the identity of the man who was burned in the boat fire that followed the altercation. And one of the film's neat little twists, she subsequently goes on to marry the very policeman superintendent originally in charge of Davidson's case. Davidson makes his home in a remote shack on the Kent Marshes, and grimly sets about the task of seeking out his former tormentors. The action alternates between his search and the slow unravelling of the idyllic domesticity of the policeman's life. Davidson gets involved with local waitress Ilse, played by Norwegian actress Eva Bergh, a refugee her from being raped one night and a touching relationship develops between them, forcing Davidson to re-evaluate his need for revenge.

Producer: Mohini Patel.


WED 23:00 Late Junction (b03b2ngs)

THU 14:00 Afternoon Concert (b03b2md2)
Thursday Opera Matinee

Verdi 200 - Il Corsaro

Verdi 200 - Il Corsaro

Penny Gore introduces an acclaimed recording of this rarely performed opera starring Montserrat Caballé, José Carreras and Jessye Norman.

First performed in 1848 Verdi's Il Corsaro, like Berlioz's overture and Petipa's ballet, is based on Lord Byron's poem The Corsaire. Verdi first expressed interest in the poem several years earlier but by the time Il Corsaro received its premiere in Trieste he had shown surprisingly little interest in the production and did not attend the opening night, which was poorly received.

The action takes place in the Turkish city of Corone and on a Greek island in the Aegean where Corrado, the chief corsair, is in exile. On hearing of the threatening military plans of the Turkish Pasha Seid he sets forth with his men for Corone, leaving behind his heart-broken lover Medora. Despite an initial victory over Seid, and having caught the eye of the Pasha's favourite slave-girl Gulnara, Corrado is eventually imprisoned. Ultimately they escape and set sail for the island, but Medora has already taken drastic action assuming that Corrado is dead...

Corrado ..... José Carreras (tenor)
Medora ..... Jessye Norman (soprano)
Gulnara ..... Montserrat Caballé (soprano)
Pasha Seid ..... Gian-Piero Mastromei (baritone)

[Repeat of broadcast at 12:00 today]


THU 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b03b2rz6)
CBSO - Wagner, Stravinsky

Live from Symphony Hall, Birmingham

The CBSO and Andris Nelsons open their new season with Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and Wagner's Tannhäuser Overture.

Wagner: Tannhäuser - Overture
Wagner: Wesendonck Lieder

8.15: Interval

Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring

Kristine Opolais, soprano
CBSO
Andris Nelsons, conductor

When The Rite of Spring was premiered in Paris in 1913, it caused a riot. But 100 years on Stravinsky's revolutionary ballet will still make an electrifying opening to the CBSO's new season. Andris Nelsons conducts it for the first time, and joins his wife Kristine Opolais in music close to both their hearts - Wagner's star-crossed Wesendonck Lieder, and the piece that first made him fall in love with music: the overture to Tannhäuser.


THU 22:00 Night Waves (b03b2pwt)
Sound of Cinema: Landmarks - The Innocents

A Landmark edition recorded in front of an audience at the British Film Institute as part of the Sound of Cinema season: Matthew Sweet is joined by the film's stars Peter Wyngarde and Clytie Jessop, psychoanalyst Susie Orbach, writer and critic Christopher Frayling and stage and screenwriter Jeremy Dyson to examine the British horror classic The Innocents.

The Innocents is a supernatural horror film based on the novella The Turn of the Screw by Henry James starring Deborah Kerr as Miss Giddens, the young governess who begins her first assignment caring for two orphaned children on a remote estate. She becomes convinced that the house and grounds are haunted - the film achieving its gothic effects through lighting, music and direction rather than conventional shocks, as we follow the increasingly erratic behaviour and visible deterioration of the ever present governess. But are we watching a real ghost story or is this just the projection of the imagination of the repressed governess?

As part of Radio 3's Sound of Cinema season, Matthew Sweet and guests are joined by an audience at the British Film Institute for a Landmark edition of Night Waves, to examine how the combination of cinematography, the script of William Archibald and Truman Capote and Georges Auric's original music and the direction of Jack Clayton created a masterpiece that terrified even the critics.

Producer: Laura Thomas.


THU 22:45 The Essay (b03b2n4q)
Heffer on British Film

Mandy

As part of BBC Radio 3's Sound of Cinema, a week of essays written and presented by historian and columnist Simon Heffer on classic British taboo-breaking films which depicted a society changed profoundly by war. The cinema of the 30s was nakedly and unashamedly escapist in a way that the cinema of the late 40s and early 50s - in an age of lost innocence and social upheaval - simply couldn't be. This was a period when British cinema was forced to embrace change and reflect reality.

Taboos it had left untouched could no longer be ignored if film was to remain relevant. Families had broken up because of bereavement and adultery. Subjects considered unsuitable for a cinema audience - marital breakdown , criminality, revenge, failings in the justice system, and disability - suddenly became popular with British screenwriters and studios. Social realism was the order of the day.

In Heffer on British Film, Simon Heffer puts the case for five films from the decade after the war which show British cinema dealing with gritty social issues and dramatic high standards before the 60s were underway - including It Always Rains on Sunday (1947), The Long Memory (1952), The Browning Version (1951), Yield to the Night (1956) and the focus of today's essay - Mandy (1953).

Ealing Studios' Mandy, directed by Alexander Mackendrick was based on the book 'The Day Is Ours' by Hilda Lewis, with screenplay by Nigel Balchin and Jack Whittingham. It's the story of a girl, Mandy Garland, who is diagnosed with a congenital hearing defect and starred Phyllis Calvert, Jack Hawkins and Terence Morgan.

As her parents Harry and Christine Garland come to terms with the fact that they have a deaf-mute daughter, they enrol her in special education classes to try to get her to speak. As she struggles to express herself and learn how to lip-read, her parents argue over the best way to deal with her condition and their marriage comes under severe strain. This is compounded by hints of an affair between Christine and Searle (Jack Hawkins) , the headmaster of the school for the deaf where Mandy is enrolled. Although it may be too late for the little girl to make great strides, the specialist training eventually pays off to the point where Mandy says her own name for the first time.

While the drama revolves around the parents' sharply conflicting views of what to do for their child, the unpretentious, documentary style adopted by MacKendrick reveals the world through the eyes of the little girl as she responds to the strange way adults around her conduct themselves and the sensitive guidance of her school. And, thanks to the wonderful performance he draws from Mandy Miller, the slow but sure development of this youngster is at the heart of the film.

Producer: Mohini Patel.


THU 23:00 Late Junction (b03b2ngv)

More Stars Than There Are in Heaven

Even though the big studios were facing strong competition from the independent sector and television, the demand for film music continued to produce some remarkable scores, with Franz Waxman notably winning academy awards in successive years for "Sunset Boulevard" and "A Place in the Sun" and Bernard Herrmann providing one of the most famous soundtracks of all time for Hitchcock's thriller "Psycho". With guest John Wilson.

FRI 19:30 Radio 3 Live in Concert (b03b2s05)
BBC SSO - Britten, Mahler

Live from Perth Concert Hall
Presented by Jamie MacDougall

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Donald Runnicles are joined by Thomas Hampson to
perform Mahler Songs, and the orchestra play Mahler's Fifth Symphony.

Britten: Overture, The Building of the House
Mahler: Songs

8.10 Interval

Mahler: Symphony No. 5

Thomas Hampson (baritone)
BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra
Donald Runnicles (conductor)

The BBC Scottish Symphony and Chief Conductor Donald Runnicles launch their 2013/2014 season with a concert celebrating the music of Gustav Mahler.
The concert opens with music by a composer who took great inspiration from that Austrian master: Benjamin Britten. In his centenary year, the orchestra perform his sparkling 'Overture: The Building of the House.'
The internationally renowned baritone Thomas Hampson joins the orchestra to perform a selection of Mahler's songs from 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn' and 'Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen'. Mahler's epic Fifth Symphony -from the turn of the 20th Century- concludes the concert. Described by Benjamin Britten as music to 'revel' in, this mighty work journeys over 75 minutes from an ominous funeral march to a breath-taking finale, by way of the 'Adagietto'. Written as an expression of love to Alma Schindler, whom he was shortly to marry, it is possibly Mahler's most famous musical work.

FRI 22:45 The Essay (b03b2n4s)
Heffer on British Film

Yield to the Night

As part of BBC Radio 3's Sound of Cinema, a week of essays written and presented by historian and columnist Simon Heffer on classic British taboo-breaking films which depicted a society changed profoundly by war.

In Heffer on British Film, he puts the case for five films from the decade after the war which show British cinema dealing with gritty social issues and dramatic high standards before the 60s were underway - including It Always Rains on Sunday (1947), The Browning Version (1951), Mandy (1953), The Long Memory (1952), and Yield to the Night (1956), the subject of his final essay in the series.

Yield to the Night was widely regarded as the pinnacle of Diana Dors' career - the film on which her reputation as a serious actress rests. She plays a murderess Mary Hilton sentenced to hang, spending her last days in the condemned cell in a British women's prison. It was released a year after Ruth Ellis was executed and bore an uncanny resemblance to her case but it was actually based on a novel of 1954 - a year before Ellis murdered Blakely.

Mary is a married woman who drifts into an affair with a good-looking piano player Jim Lancaster (Michael Craig) The problem is the affair is one-sided. Jim is smitten with another - Lucy Carpenter - who is way out of his league. But Mary is so hopelessly in love, she starts to believe Lucy deserves to die. And she has Jim's gun. But she shoots not her boyfriend, but her boyfriend's lover.

The story of events leading to murder is told in flashback and there is little doubt that the screenplay draws liberally on the Ellis case - the murderess withdrawing her revolver from her handbag in the street, and emptying its chambers into her victim with shocking calmness. A glamorous, bottle-blonde young woman, Mary, like Ellis, had difficulties with men all her life and makes no attempt to escape justice.

The film focuses almost entirely on her experience of prison - the British equivalent of Death Row - awaiting execution, and on her relationship with the various female prison warders, and in particular with MacFarlane (Yvonne Mitchell). Mary is a likeable young woman and the warders grow fond of her. Decidedly anti-capital punishment and downbeat in mood, the film won critical acclaim, particularly for the skilled acting of Dors, who had previously been cast solely as the stereotypical "blonde bombshell".

Producer: Mohini Patel.
