SUN 12:00 Private Passions (b06pv42h)
Christina Lamb

Christina Lamb is one of Britain's leading foreign correspondents. As a young journalist barely into her twenties, she went to live with the Afghan Mujahidin fighting the Russians; her dispatches saw her named Young Journalist of the Year in the British Press Awards in 1988. Since then she has travelled by canoe through the Amazon rainforest, reported undercover from Zimbabwe, infiltrated a crime syndicate in Brazil, and survived an ambush by the Taliban. She has won Foreign Correspondent of the Year five times as well as the Prix Bayeux, Europe's most prestigious award for war correspondents. She's currently Chief Foreign Correspondent for the Sunday Times, and the author of several best-selling books, including a new book about her time in Afghanistan, 'Farewell Kabul'. During this last year she has been reporting on the refugee crisis in Europe, from detention camps in Libya and rescue ships in the Mediterranean.

It's an extraordinary career, and it all started completely by chance when she was a young intern - with a surprise wedding invitation from Benazir Bhutto.

In Private Passions, Christina Lamb talks to Michael Berkeley about the pressures and pleasures of her working life, and vividly describes encounters with critical danger. She was on the bus with Benazir Bhutto when a bomb exploded, killing more than a hundred people. She chooses music which transports her back to the countries she has lived in: tabla music she first heard in a bazaar in Pakistan, and drumming she danced to in the Rio Carnival. She has recently discovered the music of Clara Schumann, and Tchaikovsky's The Seasons in a brand-new recording by Lang Lang. And Maria Callas singing in Tosca is a must - it's the soundtrack for the first time she met her Portuguese husband.

Produced by Elizabeth Burke.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b06pv42r)
Making an Entrance - Asian Theatre in Britain

Sarfraz Manzoor charts the history of Asian theatre in Britain, a tale which ranges from The Bayaderes, 'Priestesses of Pondicherry' - temple dancers who came to London from India in the 1830s - through to the current generation of actors, directors and writers.
Sarfraz examines how political and social unrest in the 1970s sparked the founding of the first high-profile Asian theatre company in Britain, and looks at how the 21st century has seen an increasingly wide range of work - from controversial plays and new, sometimes radical, versions of classic texts to Bollywood-inspired musicals. With contributors including Hanif Kureishi, Tanika Gupta, Ayub Khan-Din, Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti, Jatinder Verma and Sudha Bhuchar.

First broadcast in November 2015.


SUN 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b06pv42t)
Schubert, Beethoven, Kapralova

Ian Skelly presents two beautiful sequences of Schubert choral music recorded at the Styriarte Festival, Graz, and the great hall of Thun castle in the canton of Berne is a suitably grand setting for Beethoven's Archduke Trio. And there's an all too rare chance to hear a concertino by Vitezslava Kaprálová, born a hundred years ago and who at her death at the age of twenty five left a remarkable body of works which suggest that she was destined to become one of the leading composers of her generation.

SUN 21:00 Drama on 3 (b06pv42w)
Curated by Harriet Walter

Dinner, by Moira Buffini

by Moira Buffini

Moira Buffini's outrageous comedy Dinner started life in the National Theatre's Loft in 2002, and became her first West End smash. In this production, adapted by the writer for Drama on 3, Harriet Walter returns to the role she created: Paige, the hostess and architect of an evening which her guests will never forget. Two other original leads, Nicholas Farrell and Penny Downie, and four new cast members join her in this viciously black chamber piece about appetite, which will make you think twice about ever accepting another invitation to dinner.

Moira Buffini's collaboration with Damon Albarn and Rufus Norris, the gaming musical 'wonder.land', ran at the Manchester International Festival, the National Theatre and the Théâtre du Châtelet, Paris; and her Olivier award-winning comedy about the relationship between the Queen and Margaret Thatcher, 'Handbagged', after the original Tricycle production directed by Indhu Rubasingham, became a sell-out West End run.

These, along with her screenplays for movies 'Jane Eyre' (directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga), 'Tamara Drewe' (directed by Stephen Frears) and 'Byzantium' (directed by Neil Jordan), and her previous play for the National, the political fable 'Welcome to Thebes' (directed by Richard Eyre), have all demonstrated Buffini's appetite for political engagement, fast-moving wit, and a delight in satirising our own times.


SUN 22:35 Early Music Late (b06pv435)

MON 22:00 Free Thinking (b06pssk1)
2015 Festival

Landmark: Angela Carter

Angela Carter's work was described by Salman Rushdie as 'without equal and without rival'. The award winning author of novels including The Bloody Chamber, Wise Children and Nights at the Circus was a pioneer of English magic realism who re-imagined fairy tales and explored boundary breaking and rebelling against the confines of society. Her non fiction book The Sadeian Woman explored the ideology of pornography.

Thirteen years after her early death, the novelists Joanna Kavenna and Natasha Pulley join Angela Carter's literary executor Susannah Clapp and her friend the cultural critic Christopher Frayling to discuss Carter's writing and influence with Free Thinking presenter Philip Dodd. The readings are performed by Emily Woof.

Christopher Frayling is the author of Inside the Bloody Chamber: on Angela Carter, the Gothic, and other weird tales which draws on the letters he and Carter exchanged.

Joanna Kavenna is the author of five novels including Come to the Edge. In 2013 she was included in the Granta List of 20 best young writers.

Natasha Pulley is the author of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street and a graduate of the creative writing programme at the University of East Anglia.

Susannah Clapp is the author of A Card from Angela Carter and Theatre Critic for The Observer.

Recorded in front of an audience at the Free Thinking Festival Sage Gateshead and first broadcast in November 2015.

Producer: Zahid Warley.


MON 22:45 The Essay (b06pxdzh)
Signs and Mythologies - The Significance of Roland Barthes

Andrew Hussey

'The philosopher and critic Roland Barthes still has one of those French names which all too often can provoke anger, confusion and even fear amongst the English-speakers', suggests cultural historian and broadcaster Andrew Hussey.

Across the week five authors write about Barthes' significance to them and discuss the influence the maverick cultural philosopher has had upon their own work. Over the week they create a picture of a literary figure whose writing was fun, accessible and is still deeply influential on the way we look at the world. Barthes's literary output was not only prolific, but also eclectic. During the course of his life his thinking influenced the development of theories of structuralism, semiotics, social theory, design, anthropology and post structuralism. A powerful blast of fresh air in post war cultural thought, his carefully argued, accessible and sometimes mischievous examinations of philosophical, cultural and social ideas continue to influence contemporary writers and thinkers.

An eclectic group of essayists celebrate the range of influence his writing has had. Andrew Hussey examines Barthes' impact in Europe in the 1960s. Other essayists over the week include design historian Penny Sparke, film journalist Nick James and historian and broadcaster Michael Wood.

Producer: Frank Stirling at Unique.

The Family Is Dead! Long Live The Family!

What is going on inside Britain's families? From three-parent families and surrogacy, to stepfamilies - the fastest rising type of home in the UK - the days of the 'traditional' family are apparently over.

Joining Free Thinking presenter Anne McElvoy are:

Anne Fine - the first Children's Laureate and an acclaimed author of books for adults and children including Madame Doubtfire and Telling Liddy.

Tobias Jones - a novelist and communalist who opened his home as a sanctuary for people in a period of crisis and explores the results in his new book, A Place of Refuge: an Experiment in Communal Living.

Nick James

The impact that the maverick critic, philosopher and semiologist Roland Barthes has had on those who write about films and on many who make them is significant. The film writer and arts journalist Nick James gives a personal response to his work.

Barthes was a powerful blast of fresh air in post war cultural thought, his carefully argued, accessible and sometimes mischievous examinations of philosophical, cultural and social ideas continue to influence contemporary writers and thinkers. Across the series five authors write about Barthes' significance to them and discuss the influence this extraordinary literary figure has had up.

9.30am
Take part in today's challenge. Two pieces of music are played together - can you work out what they are?

WED 19:30 Radio 3 in Concert (b06pxn6c)
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra - Beethoven, Elgar

Vassily Sinaisky conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in Elgar's Second Symphony. Kirill Gerstein joins them in Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto.

Live from the Lighthouse, Poole
Presented by Ian Skelly

Beethoven: Piano Concerto No 4 in G

8.15: Interval

8.35
Elgar: Symphony No 2 in E flat

Kirill Gerstein, piano
Vassily Sinaisky, conductor

With references to the brilliant warmth and light of Italy and the rugged grandeur of the Cornish coast, Elgar's Second Symphony is far more complex and deeply personal than his First. Riddled with doubts, questioning and conflict it reflects not only the true spirit of the age but also the personality of the composer as it meanders from extrovert exuberance to melancholy introversion. Elgar himself stated that "I have written out my soul".
Beethoven imbues his Fourth Piano Concerto with a genuinely romantic voice. It is ardent and melancholy, heroic and ethereal, anguished and whimsical.


WED 22:00 Free Thinking (b06ptbbg)
2015 Festival

Breathalysing Britain: Free Spirits Or a Drain on Society?

Every day we read lurid headlines about alcohol abuse and the consequences of binge drinking for the young at home and abroad. But a deeper look reveals a complicated picture of alcohol use in Britain. Champagne is still linked with celebration, while pubs are closing up and down the country. University freshers' weeks are adjusting to reflect the increasing number of students who are teetotal - but doctors are reporting a rise in patients with liver damage. How should society accommodate people who drink to excess and those who don't want to drink at all?

Dr Sally Marlow from King's College, London is an expert in addiction. In a specially commissioned Free Thinking talk she explores the hypocrisy in society around alcohol.

Joining the debate chaired by Free Thinking presenter Philip Dodd are:

Professor Barry Smith - philosopher from the University of London's School of Advanced Study and wine columnist for Prospect magazine.

David Yelland - former editor of the Sun and a Trustee of Action on Addiction and Patron of the National Association for Children of Alcoholics.

Shelina Zahra Janmohamed, author of Love in a Headscarf and Muslim women's activist, who blogs at Spirit 21 and who is a lifelong teetotaller.

Recorded in front of an audience at the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead.


WED 22:45 The Essay (b06pxnjn)
Signs and Mythologies - The Significance of Roland Barthes

Penny Sparke

The eminent design historian Penny Sparke (author of 'The Modern Interior' and 'As Long As It's Pink') cites Roland Barthes as a factor in her decision to work in the field of design. She assesses his influence on her thinking throughout her career.

Barthes was a powerful blast of fresh air in post war cultural thought, his carefully argued, accessible and sometimes mischievous examinations of philosophical, cultural and social ideas continue to influence contemporary writers and thinkers. In this series five authors write about Barthes' significance to them and discuss the effect the maverick cultural philosopher has had upon their own work. They create a picture of a literary figure whose writing was fun, accessible and deeply influential on the way we look at the world. Barthes's literary output was not only prolific, but also eclectic. During the course of his life his thinking influenced the development of theories of structuralism, semiotics, social theory, design, anthropology and post structuralism.

Other essayists over the week include broadcaster and cultural historian Andrew Hussey, film journalist Nick James and historian and broadcaster Michael Wood.

Producer: Frank Stirling at Unique.

2015 Festival

Rule-Making and Rule-Breaking for Women and Men

Do men and women have different attitudes to rule breaking? With changing ideas about gender, can we say that our minds are wired differently? Helen Fraser, head of the Girls' Day School Trust said recently that 'being the compliant girl is never going to get you anywhere'. What are the rules today for relationships and getting on in society? Is it time to throw out received ideas and challenge the advice given to young people?

Free Thinking presenter Rana Mitter chairs a debate that takes the shape of a rule-breaking game show. Our panellists are:

Sheila Hancock - actress and author of three non-fiction books and a novel Miss Carter's War

Journalist Bim Adewunmi - culture editor at Buzz Feed UK, who writes often about popular culture and how it intersects with gender and race

Neil Bartlett, theatre director and author whose most recent novel is The Disappearance Boy

Jonny Mitchell, the headmaster in Channel 4's Educating Yorkshire and now the Head of the Co-operative Academy of Leeds

Recorded in front of an audience at the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead and first broadcast in November 2015.

THU 22:45 The Essay (b06pxnjq)
Signs and Mythologies - The Significance of Roland Barthes

Andrew Gallix

An encounter as a teenager with Roland Barthes and an orange moped inspired the magazine editor Andrew Gallix, who now teaches at the Sorbonne, with a fascination for the ideas of the great French theorist. In this week of essays celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth, Andrew reflects on what Barthes meant by 'The Death of the Author'.
Across the week five authors write about Barthes' significance to them and discuss the influence the maverick cultural philosopher has had upon their own work. Over the week they create a picture of a literary figure whose writing was fun, accessible and is still deeply influential on the way we look at the world. Barthes's literary output was not only prolific, but also eclectic. During the course of his life his thinking influenced the development of theories of structuralism, semiotics, social theory, design, anthropology and post structuralism. A powerful blast of fresh air in post war cultural thought, his carefully argued, accessible and sometimes mischievous examinations of philosophical, cultural and social ideas continue to influence contemporary writers and thinkers.
An eclectic group of essayists celebrate the range of influence his writing has had. Andrew Hussey examines Barthes' impact in Europe in the 1960s. Other essayists over the week include design historian Penny Sparke, film journalist Nick James, the editor of 3 A.M. Magazine and teacher at the Sorbonne in Paris, Andrew Gallix, and cultural historian Michael Wood.

Friday - Rob Cowan with Ian Rankin

9am
A selection of music including '5 reasons to love... tangos'. Rob explores this fiery and sensual dance form, which originated in South America in the late 19th century. Throughout the week Rob shares works that highlight the wit, passion and full-on Latin temperament of the dance, with featured composers including Niels Gade, Albeniz, Stravinsky, and Carlos Gardel, the great tango writer of the 20th century who did so much to popularise the form.

9.30am
Take part in our daily musical challenge. Listen to the clues and identify the mystery music-related place.

Best known as the creator of the Inspector Rebus series, Ian has written books that have been translated into over twenty languages and are bestsellers around the world. His latest novel in the John Rebus series, 'Even Dogs in the Wild', was released this month. Ian will be talking about his writing career and sharing a selection of his favourite classical music, every day at 10am.

Rob places Music in Time as he heads back to the Baroque to examine the use of word-painting to illustrate a scene in Bach's St Matthew Passion.

Rob's Artist of the Week is Manfred Honeck, a maestro with the power to make magic with a musical phrase and summon a colossal range of dynamics, and who, for Rob, is one of the greatest conductors alive today. Throughout the week Rob features Honeck together with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in acclaimed recordings of music by the great Romantics, Mahler, Bruckner and Richard Strauss, as well as Verdi and Johann Strauss II.

She tackles Prokofiev's modernistic Second Concerto, one of the most technically demanding concertos in the entire repertoire.

Patti Smith has just published her second volume of memoir 'M Train' (Bloomsbury), a book that follows Patti around New York as she writes, reads and drinks coffee.

Grayson Perry's recent exhibition at the Turner Contemporary in Margate 'Provincial Punk' examined his interests in contemporary Britain from class and taste to war.

Anthony Horowitz has just published his second James Bond novel 'Trigger Mortis' (Orion). He explains where he gets the permission to take on another writer's most famous character.

The poet and sound artist Holly Pester examines the phenomenon of 'vocal fry' in a special commission for The Verb.

Producer: Faith Lawrence.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b06pxnjs)
Signs and Mythologies - The Significance of Roland Barthes

Michael Wood

The historian and broadcaster Michael Wood concludes this series of essays celebrating the 20th-century French philosopher Roland Barthes by trying to define him. Semiologist, existentialist, writer on art, design, thought, popular culture, photography, film - even Barthes himself was decidedly inconsistent in his attempts to define himself.

Across the week five authors have been writing about Barthes' significance to them and discussing the effect the maverick cultural philosopher has had upon their own work. Over the week they've created a picture of a literary figure whose writing was fun, accessible and deeply influential on the way we look at the world. So how should we think of him? Or does he defy categorisation? Barthes' literary output was eclectic. During the course of his life his thinking influenced the development of theories of structuralism, semiotics, social theory, design, anthropology and post structuralism. A powerful blast of fresh air in post war cultural thought, his carefully argued, accessible and sometimes mischievous examinations of philosophical, cultural and social ideas continue to influence contemporary writers and thinkers.

An eclectic group of essayists celebrate the range and breadth of his writing. Other essayists over the week include broadcaster and design historian Penny Sparke, film journalist Nick James and historian and broadcaster Michael Wood.

Producer: Frank Stirling at Unique.


FRI 23:00 World on 3 (b06pxp1c)
Lopa Kothari with The East Pointers in Session

Lopa Kothari with new music from across the globe, plus a live studio session with Canadian band The East Pointers.

The East Pointers came together on Prince Edward Island in Canada's Atlantic Maritimes. Cousins Tim Chaisson (fiddle) and Koady Chaisson (banjo), who were born on the island, found themselves joined in regular informal kitchen parties by guitarist Jake Charron - it wasn't long before they decided to make a go of a band. They offer a fresh, youthful take on the area's traditional music.

Plus more from the World Music Archive and BBC Introducing.
