9.30am – Building a Library
Richard Morrison listens to some of the available versions of Leoš Janáček's Sinfonietta and makes a recommendation.

The Sinfonietta is one of the succession of masterpieces from the final decade of of Janáček's life, a period of extraordinary creativity whose source was Kamila Stösslová, a woman nearly forty years his junior. Beginning and ending with exuberant fanfares, it's Janáček's longest orchestral work, a thrilling combination of the unique sound-world and bristling energy so typical of Janáček's late music.

SAT 12:15 Music Matters (b08wmz11)
Semyon Bychkov, New Music Biennial, Music and Landscape Architecture

Tom Service talks to the acclaimed conductor Semyon Bychkov about working with young musicians as he arrives in London to conduct the Royal Academy Symphony Orchestra, and about his love for Russian music as he continues his season-long Tchaikovsky project and prepares for Mussorgsky's opera Khovanshchina at the BBC Proms.

Plus composer Brian Irvine discusses his music and particularly his latest community project as part of the New Music Biennial in Hull.

And following the publication of a new book exploring connections between music and landscape architecture, Tom meets the author David Nicholas Buck together with the writer and performer Kate Romano to explore the areas where these two disciplines share common ground.

SAT 15:00 Sound of Dance (b08wmz15)
Arabic Dance

Katie Derham looks at the influence of Arabic traditions on Western dance in the light of the forthcoming Shubbak Festival in London, which offers a window on contemporary Arab culture.

From the Whirling Dervishes to the Dabke: from the Sabre Dance to the Raqs Sharqi - the Arab imagination has provided a potent and exotic influence on dance. Katie unpicks some of the great traditions of Arabic dance and culture and hones in on some of influences on our own culture - from the highly romanticised and idealistic to the more informed and authentic.

The Classic Score of the Week is Khachaturian's 1942 ballet Gayane.

Lindsey Davis

Lindsey Davis is best known for her series of historical crime stories about a laid-back amateur sleuth called Marcus Didius Falco. Set against the turmoil of the 1st-century Roman Empire, the books are witty, gritty and hugely entertaining. She's also written stand-alone novels about Ancient Rome, and about the English Civil War.

The recipient of many awards, including the Crime Writers' Association Diamond Dagger for Lifetime Achievement, Lindsey writes a book a year, but has still found time to be the Chair of the Society of Authors and Honorary President of the Classical Association.
Lindsey talks to Michael Berkeley about her introduction to music as a schoolgirl in Birmingham, her passion for symphonic music and her decision to introduce a new, feisty female protagonist to succeed her beloved Falco.

Her music includes works by Schubert, Tchaikovsky and Dvorak and - appropriately - Berlioz's Roman Carnival Overture.

Handel's Water Music

Hannah French delves into the history and musical detail of one of Handel's best-known pieces - his Water Music, first performed for King George I on the River Thames in July 1717.

A contemporary article from the Daily Courant reported the event thus:

"On Wednesday evening, 17 July 1717, at about 8 o'clock, the King took water at Whitehall in an open barge wherein were also the Duchess of Bolton, the Duchess of Newcastle, the Countess of Godolphin, Madam Kilmanseck, and the Earl of Orkney and went up the river towards Chelsea. Many other barges with "persons of quality" attended, and so great a number of boats, that the whole river in a manner was covered. A City Company's barge was employed for the music, wherein were 50 instruments of all sorts, who played all the way from Lambeth (while the barges drove with the tide without rowing, as far as Chelsea) the finest symphonies composed express for this occasion, by Mr Handel; which his Majesty liked so well, that he caused it to be played over three times in going and returning. At eleven his Majesty went ashore at Chelsea, where a supper was prepared and then there was another very fine consort of music, which lasted till 2, after which, his Majesty came again into his barge and returned the same way, the music continuing to play till he landed."

It has since become one of the most enduring compendiums of 18th-century dance music, beloved of Baroque orchestras and modern audiences alike. Hannah French explores the practicalities, conditions and acoustics of Georgian on-board entertainment and chooses some of the best recordings of the last 25 years.

In this week's episode of The Choir, Sara Mohr-Pietsch interviews Christopher Monks, the founder and Artistic Director of the Armonico Consort.

Sara and Christopher talk about the work of the AC Academy, the concerts in Birmingham Symphony Hall and the Royal Albert Hall, and the ground-breaking education programme they are rolling out in schools across the country, aiming to create 300 new children's choirs by 2020.

Sara and Christopher also focus on the innovative and extensive work with children with special educational needs, where the aim is to give children the opportunity to compose, arrange and perform their own works at some of the UK's biggest concert venues.

The programme features music by Gabriel Jackson, Johann Sebastian Bach, Edvard Grieg and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (b08wn0lc)
Drones

Tom Service discovers endless variety in music based on a drone - from rustic dance music to mystic religious ecstasy. Medieval Christian music used a drone to provide support for their liturgical chants; old country dances went with a swing to the drone of bagpipes and hurdy gurdy. Much Indian classical music builds elaborate melodic variations over a drone. Minimalist composer Lamonte Young has a never-ending drone piece playing in his loft in New York; and rock band The Velvet Underground brought psychedelic drones into the pop scene of the late 1960s.
Tom talks to Northumbrian piper Kathryn Tickell about the drones on her bagpipes, and to American Minimalist composer Phill Niblock about his use of microtonal drones in his music.

SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (b08wn0lh)
From the Ashes

In the aftermath of World War II, Europe lay in ruins, devastated by mass slaughter, bombings and chaos. How could countries find reconciliation and a shared future in such conditions? Allan Little discovers that one way was through arts festivals started across the continent in the aftermath of the war.

Allan visits Aix-en-Provence and Avignon in southern France, cities where the establishment of festivals seventy years ago led to a sustained enthusiasm and commitment to the arts. The situation in 1947 was extremely difficult, with a shortage of finance, infrastructure, and locations to put on events. In Avignon, it was the military who helped build the stage in the Pope's Palace for theatrical performances.

Further north, the Holland Festival was founded in the same year, along with the Edinburgh International Festival. In each case the desire was the same - to heal the terrible divisions brought about by war. But in each case, as Allan discovers, there were immense challenges which had to be overcome.

Producer Mark Rickards.

Orchestre National de France - Schumann, Bach, Strauss

Riccardo Muti conducts the French National Orchestra in music by Strauss and Schumann.
One of the world's leading maestros for over five decades, Riccardo Muti here conducts a French orchestra with whom he's enjoyed a long association. The Naples-born maestro steers the Orchestre National de France through Strauss's evocative early symphonic fantasy, a work inspired by the twenty one year old composer's tour of Italy in 1885. As he wrote at the time: "In the Roman ruins...ideas just came flying to me." It was the seldom performed Aus Italien which paved the way for Strauss's more famous tone poems.

Joe Orton Double-Bill: The Erpingham Camp and The Ruffian on the Stair

Crimes of Passion, a double-bill of Joe Orton plays to mark the 50th anniversary of his death, plus an interview with Kenneth Cranham, a close friend of Orton's who played several key roles in his plays. The two plays are The Ruffian On The Stair, a Pinteresque radio play about a couple whose lives are disrupted by a young visitor and The Erpingham Camp, Orton's rambunctious State-of-England farce, set in a 1960's holiday camp.

The Erpingham Camp:
Erpingham ..... Robert Daws
Riley ..... Jonjo O'Neill
Lou ..... Kerry Gooderson
Ted ..... Samuel James
Kenny ..... Charlie Clements
Eileen ..... Sarah Ridgeway
W.E. Harrison ..... Tom Forrister
Jessie Mason ..... Sanchia McCormack
Padre ..... Simon Ludders
Accordion Player ..... Colin Guthrie

The Ruffian On The Stair:
Mike ..... Gerard Horan
Joyce ..... Sophie Thompson
Wilson ..... Jack Rowan

Producer ..... Mary Peate

The Ruffian On The Stair was Orton's first play, commissioned by BBC Radio and later adapted for the stage. The Erpingham Camp started life as a TV drama. Both plays were later presented at the Royal Court Theatre as a double bill with the title Crimes of Passion, which marked the beginning of a turn of fortune in Orton's career as a playwright after the poorly-received first production of Loot. Both the radio and the stage productions of Ruffian on the Stair starred the young Kenneth Cranham, who went on to play Hal in Loot and Sloane in Entertaining Mr Sloane and became a friend of Orton's. As part of this evening, Matthew Sweet interviews Kenneth Cranham about his friendship with Orton.

Rob sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain.

9.30
Take part in today's musical challenge: identify a piece of music played in reverse.

10am
Rob's guest this week is the film director, writer, photographer and composer Mike Figgis. Mike is best known as the director of films such as Leaving Las Vegas and Internal Affairs, but he came to film after many years in music and theatre. He plays the piano, guitar and trumpet and has played and recorded with various bands in London and France, including a 'free jazz' group. For a decade Mike was a member of the People Show, a long-running experimental theatre group based in London, and has directed operas for the Manchester International Music Festival and English National Opera. As well as discussing his life and work, Mike shares some of his favourite classical music throughout the week by composers including Ives, Zelenka and Schubert.

10.30
Music on Location: New York
Rob journeys to Studio 8H, part of NBC studios, where Arturo Toscanini made many notable recordings with the NBC Symphony Orchestra.

11am
Rob's featured artist is one of Britain's greatest pianists, Solomon Cutner - known to audiences simply as Solomon. He rose from humble beginnings to the pinnacle of his profession, and was en route to recording all of Beethoven's piano sonatas when tragedy struck; he suffered a severe stroke, and for the next 32 years Solomon the pianist was forced to become Solomon the concert-goer and listener. Solomon was a prime example of the notion that less is more; his reading of Beethoven's 'Waldstein' Sonata is perfectly proportioned, his Liszt and Chopin compelling but never sentimental, his Schubert abundantly lyrical, while in chamber music - especially with the cellist Gregor Piatigorsky - Solomon was the ideal duo partner. His performances are dignified and musically persuasive making his recordings well worth revisiting.

Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704), Italy v France

Donald Macleod explores Marc-Antoine Charpentier's formative years, with the dramatic motet Le Reniement de Saint Pierre and a discourse on pleasure, "Les Plaisirs de Versailles"

It's just a case of bad timing for Marc-Antoine Charpentier that he happened to be born a decade or so after Jean-Baptiste Lully. The manipulative king's favourite held a monopoly at the Sun King's court and in the theatres. Even after his death in 1687, Charpentier had to contend with back-biting from Lully's vociferous supporters. Happily Charpentier also possessed a big reputation and a band of loyal and well-to-do supporters. In a career spanning 35 years, he enjoyed a succession of plum jobs, writing in every kind of genre for some of the most influential patrons and establishments in Paris. Indeed, perhaps Lully's restrictive practices were inadvertently his making, affording Charpentier the kind of artistic freedom to write exactly what he wanted.

Back home after three years in Italy, the Italianate influences audible in Charpentier's music stirred up existing tensions over the merits of French and Italian style.
Donald Macleod presents complete performances of the early Italian-influenced dramatic motet Le Reniement de Saint Pierre and the charming entertainment Les Plaisirs de Versailles, in which Conversation and Music argue as to which of them is indispensable.

Tuesday - Rob Cowan with Mike Figgis

9am
Rob sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain.

9.30
Take part in today's musical challenge: can you work out which two composers are associated with a particular piece?

10am
Rob's guest this week is the film director, writer, photographer and composer Mike Figgis. Mike is best known as the director of films such as Leaving Las Vegas and Internal Affairs, but he came to film after many years in music and theatre. He plays the piano, guitar and trumpet and has played and recorded with various bands in London and France, including a 'free jazz' group. For a decade Mike was a member of the People Show, a long-running experimental theatre group based in London, and has directed operas for the Manchester International Music Festival and English National Opera. As well as discussing his life and work, Mike shares some of his favourite classical music throughout the week by composers including Ives, Zelenka and Schubert.

10.30
Music on Location: New York
Rob explores music by Copland written as incidental music for a play set in New York. The play was a flop, but Copland reworked his contribution to create the chamber work Quiet City.

Double Take
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two recordings of Chabrier's miniature orchestral masterpiece España, one conducted by John Eliot Gardiner and the other by Neeme Järvi.

11am
Rob's featured artist is one of Britain's greatest pianists, Solomon Cutner - known to audiences simply as Solomon. He rose from humble beginnings to the pinnacle of his profession, and was en route to recording all of Beethoven's piano sonatas when tragedy struck; he suffered a severe stroke, and for the next 32 years Solomon the pianist was forced to become Solomon the concert-goer and listener. Solomon was a prime example of the notion that less is more; his reading of Beethoven's 'Waldstein' Sonata is perfectly proportioned, his Liszt and Chopin compelling but never sentimental, his Schubert abundantly lyrical, while in chamber music - especially with the cellist Gregor Piatigorsky - Solomon was the ideal duo partner. His performances are dignified and musically persuasive making his recordings well worth revisiting.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (b08wn3v5)
Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704), The House of Guise

Donald Macleod explores the treasury of pieces Marc-Antoine Charpentier wrote for his illustrious patron, Mlle de Guise, from theatrical entertainments to the most moving sacred texts.

It's just a case of bad timing for Marc-Antoine Charpentier that he happened to be born a decade or so after Jean-Baptiste Lully. The manipulative king's favourite held a monopoly at the Sun King's court and in the theatres. Even after his death in 1687, Charpentier had to contend with back-biting from Lully's vociferous supporters. Happily Charpentier also possessed a big reputation and a band of loyal and well-to-do supporters. In a career spanning 35 years, he enjoyed a succession of plum jobs, writing in every kind of genre for some of the most influential patrons and establishments in Paris. Indeed, perhaps Lully's restrictive practices were inadvertently his making, affording Charpentier the kind of artistic freedom to write exactly what he wanted.

For 18 years, Marc-Antoine Charpentier lived and worked in the Hôtel de Guise, the palatial Parisian residence of Marie de Lorraine, the Duchesse de Guise. Generally known as Mademoiselle de Guise, she was a very well connected aristocrat - a first cousin of Louis XIV. Donald Macleod presents complete performances of the touching Hymn to the Blessed Virgin Mary, probably written for Mlle de Guise's visit to a popular pilgrimage site, Notre-Dame de Liesse, near the northern French city of Laon, contrasts with a splendid motet written for her nephew's funeral and the lively instrumental Sonata in 8 Parts, the first French chamber music to be called a Sonata.

LSO St Luke's - Bruch and Vaughan Williams, Episode 1

The UK's leading chamber group, the Nash Ensemble, celebrate two of the most tuneful of chamber music composers, Bruch and Vaughan Williams - and their little-known connection.

Vaughan Williams: St Denio (Scherzo) from Welsh Hymn Tunes
Bruch: String Quintet in E flat major
Vaughan Williams: Piano Quintet in C minor (1903)
Nash Ensemble

In 1897 the young Englishman Ralph Vaughan Williams spent an enjoyable few months in Berlin studying with the renowned German composer Max Bruch. "Bruch encouraged me," Vaughan Williams recalled, "and I had never had much encouragement before." Bruch's official testimonial for Vaughan Williams calls him "a very good musician and a talented composer"; Vaughan Williams also remembered Bruch appreciating his "ve-ry o-riginaal ideeas" - though not his harmonies, which were "rather too originell". Hearing their music together, the delightful surprise is discovering how much they had in common.

Food

Can going out for a meal really be an aesthetic experience, like going to a gallery or a theatre? What kind of statement are we making when we say we don't like beetroot? And what can the great thinkers of history - the philosopher David Hume, the anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss - tell us about table manners? And which thousand islands are we talking about when we talk about a thousand island dressing?

From the Persian poet Rumi through the Old Testament Israelites to the political protests of the suffragettes, New Generation Thinker Christopher Kissane, of the London School of Economics, explores the history of fasting. Eating and avoiding hunger are our most basic goals, yet for thousands of years people have deliberately denied themselves food as an act of faith or conscience. What is the history of fasting, and why do billions still fast today?

Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704), Moliere and the Theatre of Comedy

Donald Macleod delights over Marc-Antoine Charpentier's brilliantly evocative stage music, written for Molière and his company of actors and his historical oratorio 'Mors Saulis et Jonathae'.

It's just a case of bad timing for Marc-Antoine Charpentier that he happened to be born a decade or so after Jean-Baptiste Lully. The manipulative king's favourite held a monopoly at the Sun King's court and in the theatres. Even after his death in 1687, Charpentier had to contend with back-biting from Lully's vociferous supporters. Happily Charpentier also possessed a big reputation and a band of loyal and well-to-do supporters. In a career spanning 35 years, he enjoyed a succession of plum jobs, writing in every kind of genre for some of the most influential patrons and establishments in Paris. Indeed, perhaps Lully's restrictive practices were inadvertently his making, affording Charpentier the kind of artistic freedom to write exactly what he wanted.

Charpentier got his big break in the theatre after a bust-up between the two leading artists of the day: Molière, the master of theatrical comedy, and Jean-Baptiste Lully. For some years Charpentier supplied music for theatrical productions, notably 'Le Malade imaginaire' and 'Circé', which contained an unprecedented number of thrilling special effects. This innate mastery of drama lent itself perfectly to setting the Old Testament story of the Death of Saul and Jonathan. Presented by Donald Macleod.

New Generation Thinkers 2017, Resisting Tyranny

Jonathan Healey, of the University of Oxford, argues that the way people resisted unpopular governments changed dramatically from the 16th to the 21st centuries. As states grew in power, flight was no longer an option, so discontented people were forced to imagine revolution. Today, escape is once again possible, to safe online spaces which act like medieval forests, places which the government can't control. The nature of resistance is reverting to its Tudor state: socially conservative, constant, and small in scale.

Rob sets the tone and mood of the day's programme with a range of music to intrigue, surprise and entertain.

Take part in today's musical challenge: listen to the clues and identify a mystery person.

10am
Rob's guest this week is the film director, writer, photographer and composer Mike Figgis. Mike is best known as the director of films such as Leaving Las Vegas and Internal Affairs, but he came to film after many years in music and theatre. He plays the piano, guitar and trumpet and has played and recorded with various bands in London and France, including a 'free jazz' group. For a decade Mike was a member of the People Show, a long-running experimental theatre group based in London, and has directed operas for the Manchester International Music Festival and English National Opera. As well as discussing his life and work, Mike shares some of his favourite classical music throughout the week by composers including Ives, Zelenka and Schubert.

10.30
Music on Location: New York
Rob explores one of Steve Reich's best-loved compositions, New York Counterpoint, whose pulsating texture evokes the sounds and bustle of the city.

Double Take
Rob explores the nature of performance by highlighting the differences in style between two recordings of Debussy's Fireworks Prelude, by John Browning and Jorge Bolet.

11am
Rob's featured artist is one of Britain's greatest pianists, Solomon Cutner - known to audiences simply as Solomon. He rose from humble beginnings to the pinnacle of his profession, and was en route to recording all of Beethoven's piano sonatas when tragedy struck; he suffered a severe stroke, and for the next 32 years Solomon the pianist was forced to become Solomon the concert-goer and listener. Solomon was a prime example of the notion that less is more; his reading of Beethoven's 'Waldstein' Sonata is perfectly proportioned, his Liszt and Chopin compelling but never sentimental, his Schubert abundantly lyrical, while in chamber music - especially with the cellist Gregor Piatigorsky - Solomon was the ideal duo partner. His performances are dignified and musically persuasive making his recordings well worth revisiting.

Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704), Working for the Jesuits

Donald Macleod explores Marc-Antoine Charpentier's decade working for the Jesuits, whose enormous wealth supported the creation of some ambitious large scale dramatic works, a raft of sacred works, among them quite possibly the much loved Te Deum in D major.

It's just a case of bad timing for Marc-Antoine Charpentier that he happened to be born a decade or so after Jean-Baptiste Lully. The manipulative king's favourite held a monopoly at the Sun King's court and in the theatres. Even after his death in 1687, Charpentier had to contend with back-biting from Lully's vociferous supporters. Happily Charpentier also possessed a big reputation and a band of loyal and well-to-do supporters. In a career spanning 35 years, he enjoyed a succession of plum jobs, writing in every kind of genre for some of the most influential patrons and establishments in Paris. Indeed, perhaps Lully's restrictive practices were inadvertently his making, affording Charpentier the kind of artistic freedom to write exactly what he wanted.

In 1688 Charpentier accepted the position of music master of the church of the Jesuit College. A generous salary and resources encouraged Charpentier to stay there for the next ten years, producing music for all occasions, pretty much on demand. Donald Macleod presents the poignant centrepiece of Charpentier's ground-breaking new style of music drama, David and Jonathan, and a complete performance of his brilliant Te Deum in the buoyant key of D.

The UK's leading chamber group, the Nash Ensemble, celebrate two of the most tuneful of chamber music composers, Bruch and Vaughan Williams - and their little-known connection.

Bruch: Piano Quintet in G minor
Vaughan Williams: String Quartet No 2 in A minor
Nash Ensemble

In 1897 the young Englishman Ralph Vaughan Williams spent an enjoyable few months in Berlin studying with the renowned German composer Max Bruch. "Bruch encouraged me," Vaughan Williams recalled, "and I had never had much encouragement before." Bruch's official testimonial for Vaughan Williams calls him "a very good musician and a talented composer"; Vaughan Williams also remembered Bruch appreciating his "ve-ry o-riginaal ideeas" - though not his harmonies, which were "rather too originell". Hearing their music together, the delightful surprise is discovering how much they had in common.

New Generation Thinkers 2017, A Tale of Restoration Murder, Barbarous and Inhumane

What does the press reporting of a story of high society scandal and assassination from the reign of Charles II tell us about fake news, political bias and the draw of a saucy headline.

New Generation Thinker Thomas Charlton researches religious and political disputes of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and is currently based at Dr Williams's Library in London. His essay, recorded in front of an audience at the Festival of Ideas at the University of York, looks at a tale from 1682 and the way that the assassination of a very rich man in the heart of London highlighted tensions between the Court Party of Charles II and the Anti-Court Party of the Duke of Monmouth, his ambitious and illegitimate son. Charles might have been a Merry Monarch but he was also a very insecure one. The Crown throughout his reign was suspected of Catholic tendencies and the threat of revolution hung in the air. The Murder of Tom of the Ten Thousand nearly brought matters to a head ... and a colourful and thoroughly partisan media was there to publish every lurid detail.

Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704), Passion, Jealousy and Revenge

Donald Macleod assesses the astonishing breadth of Charpentier's musical activities with a drinking song, one of his most sumptuous masses and the operatic masterpiece Médée.

It's just a case of bad timing for Marc-Antoine Charpentier that he happened to be born a decade or so after Jean-Baptiste Lully. The manipulative king's favourite held a monopoly at the Sun King's court and in the theatres. Even after his death in 1687, Charpentier had to contend with back-biting from Lully's vociferous supporters. Happily Charpentier also possessed a big reputation and a band of loyal and well-to-do supporters. In a career spanning 35 years, he enjoyed a succession of plum jobs, writing in every kind of genre for some of the most influential patrons and establishments in Paris. Indeed, perhaps Lully's restrictive practices were inadvertently his making, affording Charpentier the kind of artistic freedom to write exactly what he wanted.

Donald Macleod explores Charpentier's final decade and attempts to get under the skin of this enigmatic, deeply talented individual. The series concludes with what is surely one of the highlights of Charpentier's career, the operatic jewel in his crown, Médée, which he produced at the age of 50 in 1693.

Sean Shibe, Julian Bliss

Sean Shibe, guitar & Julian Bliss, clarinet join forces at the East Neuk Festival in an eclectic recital from Bach to Reich at the Dreel Halls, Anstruther.

Steve Reich loves few composers more than JS Bach, so Sean Shibe and Julian Bliss takes that passion as inspiration for pairing ancient and modern with works for solo guitar and solo clarinet. On acoustic guitar Sean plays both Bach and the gorgeous traditional music of Fife's own James Oswald, then contrasts it with a modern classic on electric guitar, Reich's mesmerising Electric Counterpoint. Julian introduces short atmospheric works for solo clarinet from France including Messiaen's famous Abime des oiseaux, the third movement of his Quartet for the End of Time.

FRI 22:00 The Verb (b08wn524)
David Sedaris and Sarah Churchwell

This week The Verb examines the idea of the 'anecdote', and delves into the diaries of the writer David Sedaris for rich source material for story-telling. Sedaris is the author of books including 'Me Talk Pretty One Day', and he has just published 'Theft by Finding: Diaries: Volume One' (Little Brown)

Sarah Churchwell is the Professor of Public Understanding of the Humanities at the University of London and the author of Careless People: Murder, Mayhem and the Invention of The Great Gatsby (Virago) - she explains why 'The Great Gatsby' was once reviewed as being 'in form no more than a glorified anecdote'. Poet George Szirtes explains the pleasure of the Hungarian anecdote and explores the role of the anecdote in poetry. Songwriter Boo Hewerdine uses the idea of the anecdote, and Dorothy Parker's short poem 'Anecdote' as inspiration for a brand new song.

Producer: Faith Lawrence.


FRI 22:45 The Essay (b08wn53l)
New Generation Thinkers 2017, Dining with the Nightmare

Mary Wollstonecraft, William Godwin, William Wordsworth and Thomas Paine were amongst the guests invited to the dinner table of publisher Joseph Johnson. Daisy Hay explores the pivotal role played in the early history of English Romanticism by a maker of books who was also a maker of dreams, who invited his workers to eat alongside leading thinkers of the day, and whose publication The Analytical Review set out significant new ideas.

New Generation Thinker Daisy Hay is a Senior Lecturer in Senior Lecturer in English Literature and Archival Studies at the University of Exeter and has written about the tangled lives of the Young Romantics as well as Mr and Mrs Disraeli. New Generation Thinkers is a scheme run by the BBC and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find academics who can turn their research into radio.

The Essay was recorded in front of an audience at the Festival of Ideas run by the University of York.

Producer: Jacqueline Smith.
