SAT 21:25 Between the Ears (b06p4jvz)
White Rabbits in Sussex

In a melting magical funnel of musical love (and the odd bit of reverb), musician David Bramwell investigates the unlikely story of how, in 1969, an amateur dramatic production of "Alice Through the Looking Glass", starring a young Martha Kearney, became one of the most sought-after psychedelic records in the world.

Sony Award-winning musician David Bramwell heads out over the Downs to Ditchling, Sussex, where Peter Howell and John Ferdinando first met as teenagers - creating the soundtrack for the Ditchling Players' performance of "Alice", using not only musical instruments, but also kitchen appliances and field recordings, utilising the possibilities of the latest domestic recording gadget - a reel-to-reel tape machine.

Bramwell travels across the Downs to meet folk chanteuse Shirley Collins and her tales of ghostly morris bells; dives beneath the waters of the Ouse with musician Isobel Anderson; is serenaded on the chalky hillsides by God of Hellfire, Arthur Brown; encounters a modern day Puck of Pook's Hill - poet Sam Walker; and finds out about the Ditchling Players from Ian Clayton, member since 1948, and his son Matthew; before enticing Martha Kearney, the young Alice, to recall the production's eccentric Englishness.

For the confused, he grapples with the term 'pastoral psych folk' with former Oz and NME journalist John May, and rare groove aficionado Richard Norris, who moved to Sussex under the influence of this strange piece of musical history.

And what became of those two young musicians? One is now a local surveyor - though he still plays in a band - whilst the other went on to re-master the Dr Who theme tune as a member of the Radiophonic Workshop.
With music from the original album, and composer David Bramwell, 'White Rabbits in Sussex' is a psychedelic journey of its own, blending experimental studio techniques with music and narrative as we traverse the waterways and bottoms, the beacons and duck ponds of Sussex, in search of the muse.

Producer: Sara Jane Hall.

She shares with Michael Berkeley musical memories of growing up in Milan with an opera-loving nanny; the shock of being sent to an English boarding school as a teenager; her love of art as well as science; and how her pioneering work on addiction has helped thousands of people rebuild their lives.

New Generation Thinkers

The Science of Baby Laughs

Tiffany Watt-Smith, historian of human emotions, follows the long history of scientific inquiry into the understanding of laughter in infants and what it tells us about ourselves.

Babies can be a tough crowd. You blow raspberries. You pull faces. And then your hat accidentally falls off, and you get rewarded with a joyful peal of raspy chuckles. So imagine if trying to make babies laugh was your job? Meet Dr Caspar Addyman, a psychologist investigating infant laughter at Goldsmith's University. With his electric blue hair and wide grin, he's not your typical scientist. But when he takes his tiny experimental subjects (accompanied by their parents) into a dark booth and tries to make them giggle and guffaw, he is entering into a long scientific tradition seeking to uncover the secrets of that most alluring pleasure - the sound of an infant's laughter.

Why do babies laugh? What happens to their brains and bodies when they do? And what can a baby's sense of humour tell us about life in the adult world? These questions are not new. Victorian scientists, usually thought rather stern, were fascinated by laughter of all kinds. Charles Darwin and later James Sully who set up the UK's first psychological laboratory at UCL in the 1890s, believed childhood laughter held the key to the evolution of our species' emotions. Today, scientific interest in laughter is once more on the rise. Neuroscientist Sophie Scott, of UCL, argues laughter is less about finding things amusing than it is about trying to build relationships. If she's right, then our preoccupation with trying to make babies laugh may be more than a simple pleasure. It might be that we're trying to teach them - and they're trying to learn - a crucial human skill: how to join in.

Producer: Mark Burman.


SUN 19:08 Sunday Feature (b06p4s60)
New Generation Thinkers

The Life and Life of Richard Baxter

Professor Tom Charlton explores the thoughts and life of Richard Baxter. Pamphleteer, preacher and troublemaker at the heart of England's upheaval amidst Civil War and Restoration. Tried for subverting the government in 1685, Baxter's life had been turned upside down by Civil War, Regicide and the topsy turvy Restoration. His own exhaustive but partial account of his life is a key source for anyone trying to understand the religious and political dilemmas facing the generation who challenged the idea of monarchy and argued for many of the freedoms enshrined in the new democracy to come. Baxter was the essence of non-conformity. At odds with Cromwell yet supporter of his son Richard, precisely at the moment when the monarchy was about to be restored. His dreams of a Holy Commonwealth set him at odds with those forces returned to power by the Restoration. Tom Charlton is one of a new generation of scholars seeking to interpret the life and deeds of one of the 17th century's most important figures.

SUN 23:15 BBC Performing Groups (b06p4t0l)
BBC Singers Concert for BASCA

The BBC Singers conducted by James Morgan perform nine short pieces written recently by nine very different European composers. The texts range from the passionate and wordy, to one that sets just three very simple words. There's deep poignancy in a piece inspired by the final words of Edith Cavell, the nurse who was murdered by the Germans in the First World War, and then there are lighter moments with the iconic Alice in Wonderland being reworked for cyber-space.
The pieces were chosen following a Europe-wide call for scores organised by ECSA - the European Composer and Songwriter Association who hosted the event organised by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers & Authors.
Verity Sharp talks to each of the composers, all of whom were present at the performance.

Introduced by Verity Sharp

A selection of music including '5 Reasons to Love... the music of St Mark's Venice'. The iconic domes and multiple choir lofts of the opulent St Mark's Basilica in Venice led to the birth of the Venetian polychoral style, as composers experimented with the sound delays and unique effects of the building by positioning choirs around the cathedral.

Murray Perahia's big break came in 1972, when he became the first North American to win first prize at the Leeds Piano Competition. Since then he has put a remarkably wide range of repertoire on disc in a recording career that has lasted more than four decades, and is still going strong. Sarah features Perahia in one of the greatest versions of Schubert's Fantasie in F minor, where he's joined by Radu Lupu. There's also a critically acclaimed account of Brahms's Handel Variations, and two popular piano concertos: Beethoven's third and Chopin's first. Plus there's a rare opportunity to hear conductor Georg Solti at the piano when he joins Perahia in Bartok's Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion.

Hoagy Carmichael (1899-1981)

Nuisance of the Neighbourhood

Donald Macleod begins a week of programmes exploring the life and music of one of America's most beloved songwriters.

America's brightest musical stars have queued up to record Carmichael's songs ever since he produced his first hit, 'Star Dust' in 1927. Many of his most celebrated numbers such as 'Heart and Soul' and 'Georgia on my Mind' have become standards. A self-taught musician, Hoagy's instinct for a winning tune was always coupled with a sophisticated approach to words and music alongside the swinging influence of his jazz origins. Donald Macleod follows Carmichael's story, from his humble origins as the son of an itinerant electrician in Indiana to the bright lights and glamour of Hollywood.

In this first programme, a life in music beckons for the prodigiously talented young pianist. Even so, Hoagy figures a career in law would be the more prudent course.

Twenty-five years after he died, the BBC Philharmonic perform music which was important to Leonard Bernstein in a concert conducted by one of his students, Yutaka Sado. When Bernstein conducted his own 'Jeremiah' Symphony for the first time in 1944 it was an immediate success and is just as powerful today. This piano concerto by Mozart is one he referred to as his favourite and which was a constant companion throughout his career. Bernstein often directed performances from the keyboard. The programme closes with Schumann's lyrical Second Symphony, another cornerstone of Bernstein's repertoire.

The Free Thinking Essay

New Generation Thinkers: The Medieval Scottish Dream State

The 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum and this year's general election led to a passionate debate about nationhood and nationalism. Kylie Murray of the University of Oxford discusses the ways in which the sentiments about Anglo-Scottish relations and about Scottish identity can be seen in 15th-century Scottish literature including the Scottish Latin chronicle, the Scotichronicon and Harry's The Wallace, a vernacular epic poem about William Wallace, the champion of Scottish independence.

The New Generation Thinkers are the winners of an annual scheme run by the BBC and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find academics at the start of their careers who can turn their research into fascinating broadcasts.

The Essay was recorded in front of an audience at the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead. If you want to hear Kylie Murray discussing her research you can download The Essay and conversation as an Arts and Ideas podcast.

Glasgow RCS - Poulenc

Episode 1

Michael Collins and friends begin a week's celebration of the chamber works of Poulenc at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow. The, at times mournful, sonata for clarinet is a late work written for Benny Goodman and dedicated to his friend, the composer Honegger. The sextet for piano and woodwind is quite clearly in the neoclassical vein in the mode of Stravinsky and Poulenc makes full use of the instruments' characters to produce his trademark acerbic yet witty finish. Glinka's Trio is by contrast a work of full-blown and theatrical romanticism. He is joined for Poulenc's Sextet by Members of Stevenson Winds, all students at the RCS making their Lunchtime Concert debut.

The Rules of Good Science

Science progresses by breaking the rules of the past. New observations need new theories to explain them. Einstein's Theory of Relativity made sense of observations that Newton's Laws of Motion could not. But how can we distinguish between the brilliant ideas that change our view of the world and those that are plain wrong? And does that make science too cautious to try out new ideas?

Joining Free Thinking presenter Rana Mitter are:

Professor Carlos Frenk, founding Director of the Institute for Computational Cosmology at Durham University and winner of the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society in 2014

New Generation Thinkers: Inside a Pirate's Cookbook - A Culinary Journey through the 17th Century

The 1667 recipe book by Sir Kenelm Digby featured tea with eggs brought from China, sugared mallow-leaves that cured gonorrhea and 'pan cotto' cooked by Roman Cardinals. Digby had journeyed far and wide to collect his dishes, feasting with pirate chieftains in Algiers and munching melons in the eastern Mediterranean.

Joe Moshenska of the University of Cambridge explores Kenelm Digby's culinary travels, revealing startling contacts between Britain and the East, between alchemy and cookery, and between the past and the present.

Wednesday - Sarah Walker with Andrew Neil

9am
A selection of music including '5 Reasons to Love... the music of St Mark's Venice'. The iconic domes and multiple choir lofts of the opulent St Mark's Basilica in Venice led to the birth of the Venetian polychoral style, as composers experimented with the sound delays and unique effects of the building by positioning choirs around the cathedral. Throughout the week Sarah investigates how composers including Giovanni Gabrieli, Monteverdi and Merulo exploited the acoustics and architectural peculiarities of St Marks to create sixteenth-century surround-sound for their virtuosic vocal and instrumental compositions.

Murray Perahia's big break came in 1972, when he became the first North American to win first prize at the Leeds Piano Competition. Since then he has put a remarkably wide range of repertoire on disc in a recording career that has lasted more than four decades, and is still going strong. Sarah features Perahia in one of the greatest versions of Schubert's Fantasie in F minor, where he's joined by Radu Lupu. There's also a critically acclaimed account of Brahms's Handel Variations, and two popular piano concertos: Beethoven's third and Chopin's first. Plus there's a rare opportunity to hear conductor Georg Solti at the piano when he joins Perahia in Bartok's Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion.

Hoagy Carmichael (1899-1981)

Hollywood

Donald Macleod explores the life and music of one of America's most beloved songwriters.

America's brightest musical stars have queued up to record Carmichael's songs, ever since he produced his first hit, 'Star Dust' in 1927. Many of his most celebrated numbers such as 'Heart and Soul' and 'Georgia on my Mind' have become standards. A self-taught musician, Hoagy's instinct for a winning tune was always coupled with a sophisticated approach to words and music alongside the swinging influence of his jazz origins. Donald Macleod follows Carmichael's story, from his humble origins as the son of an itinerant electrician in Indiana to the bright lights and glamour of Hollywood.

Today, as Hoagy reaches his thirties we find him making advances in both his professional and personal lives. A whirlwind romance is followed by the fulfilment of a childhood dream when he finally breaks into the movie business.

Glasgow RCS - Poulenc

Episode 2

Former Cardiff Singer of the World winner, Nicole Cabell and pianist Simon Lepper celebrate Poulenc's profound love for the contemporary poets of his day in Paris in this recital from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow.

Banalités' is a group of five songs from various sources of which, 'Hotel' and 'Voyage a Paris' come from a group of short poems also entitled 'Banalités' by the poet Apollinaire which appealed to him because of their silliness. The group of poems are disparate and have no obvious thematic thread however his settings, beautifully illuminate the sometimes obscure texts.

The poetry of Louise de Vilmorin gave Poulenc the opportunity to write specifically for the female voice in 'Fiancailles pour rire'. The cycle begins with the expression which has come to represent the duality of Poulenc's musical personality -) the monk and the street urchin - the sublime alongside the ridiculous. The final song of the cycle, "Fleurs," is one of those grave songs of love and loss that no one else but Poulenc could have composed.

Poulenc's works are contrasted with two well-known song cycles by his older contemporary, Maurice Ravel; the magically evocative song cycle Shéhérazade originally written for soprano (or tenor) and orchestra and his Cinq populaires grecques which were written around the same time for voice and harp to illustrate a lecture his friend Pierre Aubry was giving on Greek folk song. They are all popular songs which range in mood from the carefree 'Tout gai', to the atmospheric and meditative 'La-bas, vers l'eglise'.

Presented by Sara Mohr-Pietsch

Franck: Le chasseur maudit
Ravel: Piano Concerto for the Left Hand

Interval - French music including 'Quels doux concerts' from Rameau's Hippolyte et Aricie, Ravel's Don Quichotte a Dulcinée, and a performance, by two viols, of the Concerto No. 12 from Couperin's Les gouts-réunis.

Berlioz: Symphonie Fantastique

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (piano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Pascal Rophé (conductor)

An evening of dazzling Gallic genius, led by Pascal Rophé. The supernatural comes to the fore: in César Franck's symphonic poem a count dares to go hunting on a Sunday morning, in violation of the Sabbath. Cursed, he is condemned to be pursued by demons for eternity. Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique ends with a witches' Sabbath as the febrile imagination of the talented lovesick young artist plumbs the heights and depths - under the influence of opium.

Ravel's transparent Piano Concerto for the Left Hand is performed by the award-winning Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, whose eloquence and artistry have won him fans across the globe.

Stage Directions: Juliet Stevenson and Natalie Abrahami in Conversation

Actress Juliet Stevenson - whose work on theatre, film and TV includes Les Liaisons Dangereuses, The Village and the BAFTA award winning Truly Madly Deeply - comes to Sage. She's joined on stage by Natalie Abrahami, who directed Stevenson in an acclaimed recent revival of Samuel Beckett's Happy Days at the Young Vic in London. They ask: how easy is it to break rules in the theatre?

The text of a play contains stage directions - sometimes very precise. If the play is a classic, audiences and critics may have fixed ideas about what they expect to see. Matthew Sweet chairs a discussion which lifts the curtain on the experimentation that goes on in the rehearsal room and before the TV cameras roll.

Natalie Abrahami is directing a production of Queen Anne at the Royal Shakespeare Company. It's a new play by Helen Edmundson which
explores the relationship between Queen Anne and the Duchess of Marlborough. It runs at the RSC from November 19th 2015.

New Generation Thinkers: Beer and the British Empire

From a breakfast drink to start the day to the treatment of bullet-wounds, beer has been a constant accompaniment to British life for centuries. Nowhere was this truer than in Imperial India where beer played a central role in colonial commerce, medicine and leisure.

Sam Goodman of the University of Bournemouth explores this colonial drinking culture and how many of its habits have lingered to the present day, noting that whilst the Empire might be long gone, British taste for beer has proved remarkably consistent.

The New Generation Thinkers are the winners of an annual scheme run by the BBC and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find academics at the start of their careers who can turn their research into fascinating broadcasts.

Recording in front of an audience at the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead. If you want to hear Sam Goodman discuss his research you can download The Essay and conversation as an Arts and Ideas podcast.

Many of his most celebrated numbers such as 'Heart and Soul' and 'Georgia on my Mind' have become standards.

Donald Macleod follows Carmichael's story, from his humble origins as the son of an itinerant electrician in Indiana to the bright lights and glamour of Hollywood.

Life seemed just about perfect for Hoagy and his wife Ruth, as the composer churned out hit after hit and they moved easily among the social circles of Hollywood's elite. All was not as it appeared and the movie community were aghast when Hoagy had an affair, throwing his failing marriage into the spotlight.

Donizetti - Roberto Devereux

Donizetti's third Tudor opera, Roberto Devereux, is a story of love and deceit, based on a libretto by Salvadore Cammarano (1801-1852). Devereux is the lover of Queen Elizabeth I but Parliament has pushed through a charge of treason against him. The Queen's attempts to save Devereux are frustrated by her suspicions that he loves another. Devereux and Sarah, the Duchess of Nottingham, have been seeing each other for some time, and upon discovery of this fact by both the Queen and the Duke of Nottingham, Devereux must meet an inevitable end. The Queen in turn, is forced to confront her old age and a lonely journey towards her own death, and in a fit of frustration and anger, announces her abdication in favour of Charles I.

Andrés Máspero's new production of Donizetti's rarely heard Roberto Devereux is headed by soprano Mariella Devia as Elizabeth, Queen of England, and tenor Gregory Kunde as Robert Devereux the Earl of Essex, with Marco Caria and Silvia Tro Santafé as the Duke and Duchess of Nottingham, Juan Antonio Sanabria as Lord William Cecil, and Andrea Mastroni as Sir Walter Raleigh, with the chorus and orchestra of Teatro Real, Madrid. The performance is conducted by Bruno Campanella.

The BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra welcomes back Martyn Brabbins to its home at City Halls for a concert dedicated to exploring British memories and experiences of World War 1. The concert includes 2 of the most enduring and popular English works: Elgar's Enigma Variations and Walton's Cello Concerto, for which the orchestra is joined by Nicolas Altstaedt.

These are performed alongside several more recent discoveries from composers whose creative endeavours were tragically cut short by the events of The Great War: George Butterworth and Cecil Coles. Butterworth is best known for his song-settings of A E Housman's 'A Shropshire Lad', and his Orchestral Fantasia was left unfinished at the time of his death. This evening's opening work has been reconstructed and expanded, from an initial sketch, by composer Kriss Russman. And Cecil Coles -who died near the Somme in 1918- left behind shrapnel-indented manuscripts which have been orchestrated by Martyn Brabbins, and make a poignant tribute to such lost talent.

Work Available: No Humans Need Apply

"By 2029 computers will have emotional intelligence and be as convincing as people". Ray Kurzweil, Google's Director of Engineering, predicts this scenario - also explored in Channel 4's hit drama, Humans.
So what are the skills needed for the 21st-century workplace and do humans have them?

According to Paul Mason, TV journalist and author of PostCapitalism, we face seismic change in part due to the revolution in information technology.

Paul Mason joins Lucy Armstrong, Chief Executive of The Alchemists - who help companies grow - and Richard and Daniel Susskind, authors of The Future of the Professions, who argue we will no longer need doctors, lawyers, accountants, teachers and others to work as they did in the 20th century.

Daniel Lee from the University of Sheffield reveals the possibility of coexistence between the Vichy regime and the Jews, exposing a world of Jewish creativity and expression that flourished just as the regime?s antisemitic measures intensified.

The New Generation Thinkers are the winners of an annual scheme run by the BBC and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find academics at the start of their careers who can turn their research into fascinating broadcasts.

The Essay was recorded in front of an audience at the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead. If you want to hear Daniel Lee discussing his research you can download The Essay and conversation as an Arts and Ideas podcast.

FRI 09:00 Essential Classics (b06p51px)
Friday - Sarah Walker with Andrew Neil

9am
A selection of music including '5 Reasons to Love... the music of St Mark's Venice'. The iconic domes and multiple choir lofts of the opulent St Mark's Basilica in Venice led to the birth of the Venetian polychoral style, as composers experimented with the sound delays and unique effects of the building by positioning choirs around the cathedral. Throughout the week Sarah investigates how composers including Giovanni Gabrieli, Monteverdi and Merulo exploited the acoustics and architectural peculiarities of St Marks to create sixteenth-century surround-sound for their virtuosic vocal and instrumental compositions.

9.30am
Take part in today's musical challenge: trace the classical theme behind a well-known song.

10am
This week's guest is Andrew Neil. A veteran broadcaster and one of Britain's best-known political journalists, Andrew presents the BBC's live political shows Daily Politics, Sunday Politics and This Week. Andrew will be talking about his career as a newspaper editor and journalist, and sharing a selection of his favourite classical music, every day at 10am.

10.30am
Sarah places Music in Time with Stravinsky's Dumbarton Oaks, an example of Neoclassicism, a key Modern trend.

11am
Murray Perahia's big break came in 1972, when he became the first North American to win first prize at the Leeds Piano Competition. Since then he has put a remarkably wide range of repertoire on disc in a recording career that has lasted more than four decades, and is still going strong. Sarah features Perahia in one of the greatest versions of Schubert's Fantasie in F minor, where he's joined by Radu Lupu. There's also a critically acclaimed account of Brahms's Handel Variations, and two popular piano concertos: Beethoven's third and Chopin's first. Plus there's a rare opportunity to hear conductor Georg Solti at the piano when he joins Perahia in Bartok's Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion.

Israel Philharmonic Orchestra

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (b06p56ct)
Hoagy Carmichael (1899-1981)

A Fading Icon

Donald Macleod explores the life and music of one of America's most beloved songwriters.

America's brightest musical stars have queued up to record Carmichael's songs ever since he produced his first hit, 'Star Dust' in 1927. Many of his most celebrated numbers such as 'Heart and Soul' and 'Georgia on my Mind' have become standards. A self-taught musician, Hoagy's instinct for a winning tune was always coupled with a sophisticated approach to words and music alongside the swinging influence of his jazz origins. Donald Macleod follows Carmichael's story, from his humble origins as the son of an itinerant electrician in Indiana to the bright lights and glamour of Hollywood.

As the sixties dawned, Hoagy found his brand of classic song writing fall from fashion, as America took up Bill Hailey's injunction to 'Rock around the clock'. His old age was marked by frustration and bereavement but, just before his death, he was honoured when the mayor of New York declared June 27th "Hoagy Carmichael Day."

The Free Thinking Essay

New Generation Thinkers: Sculpture and Seduction in the 18th Century

The 18th century was the age of politeness - and of bawdiness. Fine manners and fine art co-existed with earthy attitudes to sex and the body, even in the most elevated circles.

Curator and art historian Danielle Thom of the Victoria and Albert Museum explains why classical sculpture, the high point of 18th-century artistic taste, had a surprising influence on rude, lewd and erotic prints; and what this tells us about the surprisingly modern attitude to sexuality in the Georgian period.

The New Generation Thinkers are the winners of an annual scheme run by the BBC and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find academics at the start of their careers who can turn their research into fascinating broadcasts.

The Essay was recorded in front of an audience at the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead. If you want to hear Danielle Thom answer questions about her research you can download The Essay and conversation as an Arts and Ideas podcast.
