9.30am Building a Library: Nicholas Baragwanath listens to and compares some of the available recordings of Mahler's 4th Symphony.

Mahler wrote his 4th Symphony on the very cusp of the Twentieth Century and it was premiered in Munich on 25th November 1901. Since Mahler's death, his 4th Symphony has come to be recognised as one of his most 'classical' and approachable of his symphonic works, although it was considered to be a sacrilegious modernist work at the time of its premiere. It completes the tetralogy of his first four symphonies, his 'Wunderhorn' symphonies, so called because they each reversion music from his orchestral Wunderhorn songs. In the case of the Fourth Symphony, it is the disquieting song 'Das himmlische leben' that permeates the entire work and then comes to the fore when solo soprano joins forces with the orchestra for the final movement.

Mahler's 4th Symphony is not scored for a very large orchestra and includes neither trombones nor tuba. In it, Mahler also makes wonderful use of 'Klangfarben', voices emerging from one another within the orchestra.

SAT 11:45 Music Matters (m00040cd)
Music without compromise

Tom meets Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili. As she performs music in the studio by Schubert and Bach, Khatia describes the essential vulnerability of stage performance and the vital role played by her audiences.

As Kristiina Poska finishes a run of Lehar's Merry Widow in London, the conductor explains how she came into the profession through the singing traditions of her homeland, Estonia.

As the BBC Symphony Orchestra's Total Immersion on Lili and Nadia Boulanger gets underway at the Barbican, some of Nadia's students reflect on her extraordinary influence. With archive of Boulanger herself, and contributions from the pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim, pianists Robert Levin and Joan Havill, and composers Charles Fox and Joseph Horovitz.

And the environmental impact of our listening habits, with musician and researcher Matt Brennan.


SAT 12:30 This Classical Life (m00040cg)
Jess Gillam with... Ollie Howell

Saxophonist Jess Gillam launches her brand new weekly show, with the composer Ollie Howell.

From her musical beginnings in a carnival band, to being the first ever saxophone finalist in BBC Young Musician, and appearances at the Last Night of the Proms in 2018 and at this year’s BAFTA awards, Jess is one of today’s most engaging and charismatic classical performers. Each week on This Classical Life, Jess will be joined by young musicians to swap tracks and share musical discoveries across a wide range of styles, revealing how music shapes their everyday lives.

Her first guest is the dynamic young drummer and television composer Ollie Howell, and their eclectic choices include Dvorak’s New World Symphony, a film score by Quincy Jones, a mesmerising piano miniature by Nadia Boulanger, and some classic Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.

Forthcoming guests include the pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason, the double bassist Sam Becker, and the former BBC Introducing pianist and sound artist Belle Chen. This Classical Life is also available as a podcast on BBC Sounds.


SAT 13:00 Inside Music (m00040ck)
Music illuminated from within by pianist Boris Giltburg

Pianist Boris Giltburg puts together a list of music with a distinctly Russian flavour: from lush melodies by Rimsky-Korsakov, witty and sparkling operetta from Shostakovich, and piano and choral works by a composer who Boris reveres above all others, Sergei Rachmaninov.

Boris also takes us on a fascinating musical journey through the opening of a Bach cantata and is captivated by a song featuring ‘the voice of Georgia’, Hamlet Gonashvili, describing it as “full of harmonies and melodies that are entirely addictive”.

At 2pm Boris winds the clock back to 1954 Moscow for his Must Listen choice: a dramatic live recording by Emil Gilels of music by a Russian composer who Boris feels is often overlooked.

A series in which each week a musician reveals a selection of music - from the inside.

A brand new show featuring the best new music in live performance from around the UK and the world, plus new releases, features and interviews with composers and performers.

Plus an in-depth interview with the increasingly significant Berlin-based composer Rebecca Saunders: she has built entire pieces on something as small as the shift from one pitch to another, while recently, her music has taken a sculptural approach to space as well as sound.
And a spotlight on two leading Canadian composers with very individual voices – Cassandra Miller and Linda Catlin Smith.

SUN 12:00 Private Passions (m000408y)
Jo Brand

The comedian Jo Brand tells Michael Berkeley about the important role classical music plays in her life.

Jo Brand has enjoyed a pretty unusual career path - from psychiatric nurse to The Great British Bake Off. On the way she’s taken in radical stand up comedy – under the moniker The Sea Monster – invented a new genre of BAFTA-winning sitcom drawing on the black humour of nurses and social workers, and has made numerous appearances on panel shows from QI and Have I Got New For You to Question Time.

Jo talks movingly about the music in her childhood – learning the piano and violin, bell ringing in her local church and listening to music with her father, who suffered from depression. She chooses Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in his memory.

Music runs through Jo’s family, and her teenage daughters are keen singers. We hear Carmina Burana, which one of them has performed, as well as part of Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony, which reminds her of her rural childhood with her two brothers.

And she tells Michael that coping with drunk hecklers in rough comedy clubs was as nothing compared to the paralysing fear she felt when she had to perform Bach’s Toccata on the organ of the Royal Albert Hall for a television programme:

‘There were 8,000 people there. It was absolutely terrifying. I’d never actually realized what that expression "your blood running cold" really meant, but two minutes before I walked up and sat down at the organ, my hands were completely freezing and I thought they wouldn’t work.’

SUN 13:00 Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert (m0003sh7)
A Trio of Delights

From Wigmore Hall in London, music for piano trio by Shostakovich, Rachmaninov and Mendelssohn, performed by violinist Benjamin Beilman, cellist Narek Hakhnazaryan and pianist Louis Schwizgebel. Mendelssohn's brilliant First Piano Trio was hailed by Schumann as 'the master trio of our age' when it appeared in 1839; its third movement is a featherlight scherzo summoning the magical world of Mendelssohn's music for A Midsummer Night's Dream. Shostakovich composed his own First Trio when he was 16; it is cast in a single movement, but contains an almost cinematic wealth of contrasts

Introduced by Andrew McGregor.

Shostakovich: Piano Trio No 1 in C minor, Op 8

SUN 17:00 The Listening Service (m0004092)
The Power of One

Music where the needs of the one outweigh the needs of the many - but also where the many can become one... Tom Service looks at music performed solo, or in unison. What is happening in music where there is no harmony? And how can a single musical line build a sense of community?


SUN 17:30 Words and Music (m0004094)
Obsession

'Obsession requires a commendable mental agility', according to Nick Hornby and this edition of Words and Music wrestles with ideas that inexorably take hold of the brain. Readers are Olivia Colman and Toby Stephens.

There is nothing more absorbing than being in the throes of love, and the more unrequited it is, the more obsessive the lover becomes - from the idée fixe of Berlioz, in his almost gothic passion for Harriet Smithson, to the hormone-fuelled obsession with the teen idol, as suffered by the young Allison Pearson.

But this passion can disintegrate into something more sinister, and so enter the stalker, courtesy of Ian McEwan and The Police, and the narcissist, taken to fantastical extreme in The Portrait of Dorian Gray.

And there are those whose minds work in a way they struggle to control - Dr Johnson may have had a form of obsessive compulsive disorder, there is the hoarder, the hypochondriac, and the keeper and interpreter of minutiae, like Nick Hornby's football obsessive.

And finally the all-absorbing, all-encompassing epic grand passion, the inability to concentrate on anything else - Ahab's quest for the white whale, and the Arthurian knight's mission to find the Holy Grail.

Music from jazz, pop, rock and classical, including Cole Porter's rather unsettling (in this context) "Night and Day", the romanticism of Schubert, Berlioz and Wagner, and the joyous piling up of insistent ostinati by Herbie Hancock.


SUN 18:45 Sunday Feature (m00041b0)
The Actors' Guide to the Emotions

Shahidha Bari hosts an evening of live drama and conversation from the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead, tracing the changing portrayal of emotions on stage.

When 'the first modern actor' David Garrick stepped on stage in 1741, people were stunned by his realistic emotions. But hasn't simulating strong feelings been the essence of theatre from the first Greek tragedies? What has changed since the earliest performances?
The actors Sandy Grierson, Charlie Hardwick and Jackie Edwards are joined on stage by theatre director Lorne Campbell and Professor Jen Harvie to perform and discuss the long history of emotion on stage, the public's changing tastes and the ways that actors prepare themselves to perform 'emotionally' from the days of Chekhov to The Last Ship, the singer and musician Sting's musical about the death of the shipbuilding industry.

Producers: Fiona McLean and David Hunter


SUN 19:30 Drama on 3 (b094sd4k)
The Mother

Florian Zeller's acclaimed stage play is a portrait of a mother coming to terms with the 'empty nest' effect, soon after the departure of her two children who have found partners and new lives for themselves.

Translated by Christopher Hampton

Featuring music by Philip Glass, Christopher Hampton's regular collaborator.

Told in an original and ingeniously fractured style, the play charts the woman's descent into a world of imagination and make-believe. Can we trust anything she or the other characters say? Are their appearances indeed figments of her imagination?

Christopher Hampton is surely our foremost translator (Art, God of Carnage) as well as outstanding playwright (Liaisons Dangereuses, The Philanthropist etc.) again translates with effortless skill and comic timing.

Gina McKee (Our Friends from the North / Wonderland / Notting Hill / Atonement) reprises her stage role from Bath and London's Tricycle Theatre, as the troubled matriarch, relying too heavily on white wine and pills. In scaldingly comical exchanges she accuses her husband (Tom Goodman-Hill) of seeing a mistress when he claims to be at conferences or working late.

She trains her - sadly oppressive - attention on their son (Jonathan Bailey) who can't reciprocate her affection: he's obsessing about his girlfriend (Kesiah Joseph) with whom he's just had a blazing row. Will the Mother's attempts to stoke the flames of antagonism between them succeed?

MON 12:00 Composer of the Week (m00040w0)
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

Man of the People

Donald Macleod focuses his attention on Joseph Haydn’s humanity; a man of exceptional character with a warm, generous personality, and a great sense of humour.

Joseph Haydn’s prodigious creativty earned him the titles Father of the Symphony and Father of the String Quartet. However, he was also occupied with sacred music throughout his career. This week, as Donald Macleod follows Haydn’s journey from humble choirboy to Europe’s most celebrated composer, he shines the spotlight on music from Haydn’s many settings of the Mass. It's music that is as chock-full of invention and character as any of the instrumental forms he made his own.

A man with his roots firmly in the country, Haydn never allowed his fame to make him feel he was anything but ordinary. Despite working for the grandest noble family in Austria, and having his music performed all across Europe. Today, Donald looks at how Haydn’s fortune might have been very different, had he opted for a career in the Church.

New Generation Thinkers 2019

Marble, Muscle and Manly Bodies in the 18th Century

What was more important in the construction of an eighteenth-century man’s body: the dumbbell or the dumbwaiter? Who had the most enviable body shape: the svelte Apollo Belvedere or the rotund John Bull? Dr Sarah Goldsmith, from the University of Leicester, explores the early origins of modern gym culture in the tantalisingly elusive and occasionally surprisingly sweaty world of eighteenth-century male physicality.

Sarah Goldsmith is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the Centure for Urban History and School of History, University of Leicester.

Her Essay was recorded in front of an audience at Sage Gateshead as part of this year's Free Thinking Festival.

New Generation Thinkers is a scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to select ten academics each year who can turn their research into radio.

TUE 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0004138)
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

Struggling Musician

Donald Macleod looks at the obstacles thrown into Haydn’s path throughout his career as he shuffled between one job and the next until his employment with the Esterházys began.

Joseph Haydn’s prodigious creativity earned him the titles Father of the Symphony and Father of the String Quartet. However, he was also occupied with sacred music throughout his career. This week, as Donald Macleod follows Haydn’s journey from humble choirboy to Europe’s most celebrated composer, he shines the spotlight on music from Haydn’s many settings of the Mass. It's music that is as chock-full of invention and character as any of the instrumental forms he made his own.

Donald conjures up images of Haydn sofa-surfing in his younger days, running between jobs to earn enough money to feed himself and describes how his father saved him after a burglary left him with nothing, not even a spare shirt to wear to work. Haydn’s struggles weren’t just confined to his work but were also evident in his private life; in his choice of wife and an unrequited love.

Legends of the north

London Philharmonic Orchestra performs Arnold Bax's Tintagel. High above the Atlantic breakers, the clifftop castle of Tintagel is the stuff of legend, and when Arnold Bax saw it he let his imagination soar. Tonight’s concert begins with some of the most passionately romantic music ever written by a British composer and ends with Jean Sibelius gazing at a flight of swans in the sunset: the inspiration for his Fifth Symphony, and one of the simplest – but greatest – melodies ever written for orchestra. Finnish conductor Osmo Vänskä is simply unequalled in Sibelius – and the young Canadian pianist Jan Lisiecki has something marvellously fresh to say about Grieg’s much-loved Concerto, too.

Recorded at the Royal Festival Hall, presented by Georgia Mann.

TUE 22:00 Free Thinking (m000413n)
How They Manipulate Our Emotions

According to Madmen’s ad executive Don Draper, “what you call love was invented by guys like me… to sell nylons.” So how does advertising and gaming grab us by our emotions? Can we know when we’re being manipulated? And is there anything we can do about it? Presenter Shahidha Bari hosts a Free Thinking Festival debate at Sage Gateshead.

Ad man Robert Heath worked on campaigns including the Marlboro Cowboy, Castrol GTX Liquid Engineering, and Heineken “Refreshes the Parts”. He is the author of The Hidden Power of Advertising and Seducing the Subconscious: The Psychology of Emotional Influence in Advertising.

Claudia Hammond presents All in the Mind and Mind Changers on BBC Radio 4 and Health Check on BBC World Service. She is the author of Emotional Rollercoaster: A journey through the science of feelings and Time Warped: Unlocking the Mysteries of Time Perception and Mind over Money: the psychology of money and how to use it better.

Darshana Jayemanne is Lecturer in Games and Art at Abertay University. He is investigating the role of emotion in young people's digital play (collaborating with the NSPCC) and how this can be used to raise awareness of climate change (along with the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research).

May Abdalla is co-director and founder of Anagram - a studio which won the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival Storyscapes Award for Door Into The Dark - a blindfolded sensory experience about what it means to be lost. They are working on a VR experience about the Uncanny with the Freud Museum and an immersive documentary about imagined realities exploring schizophrenia and online gaming.

New Generation Thinkers 2019

Who Wrote Animal Farm?

Was George Orwell’s wife his forgotten collaborator on one of the most famous books in the world? Lisa Mullen takes a new look at Animal Farm from the perspective of the smart and resourceful Eileen Blair – and uncovers a hidden story about sex, fertility, and the politics of women’s work. Why are some contributions less equal than others?

Lisa Mullen is Steven Isenberg Junior Research Fellow at Worcester College, University of Oxford and the author of Mid-century gothic: uncanny objects in British literature and culture after the Second World War.

Her Essay is recorded with an audience at Sage Gateshead as part of the Free Thinking Festival and a longer version with audience questions is available as a BBC Arts&Ideas podcast.

WED 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0003znk)
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

Devout Catholic

Donald Macleod explores the importance of religion to Haydn, how it permeated his career and the choices he made throughout his life.

Joseph Haydn’s prodigious creativity earned him the titles Father of the Symphony and Father of the String Quartet. However, he was also occupied with sacred music throughout his career. This week, as Donald Macleod follows Haydn’s journey from humble choirboy to Europe’s most celebrated composer, he shines the spotlight on music from Haydn’s many settings of the Mass. It's music that is as chock-full of invention and character as any of the instrumental forms he made his own.

Haydn was brought up in a Catholic family at a time when the values of the Enlightenment were held in high esteem in Europe. As a young choir boy, Haydn’s daily routine followed the pattern of the liturgical year, which was an influence he never forgot. His steadfast faith is evident in his compositions, copies of which travelled along the length of the Danube and beyond.

Alexei Volodin (piano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Semyon Bychkov (conductor)

Conductor Semyon Bychkov presents three Shostakovich works all completed in the unsettling year of 1957. The Piano Concerto No.2 , a gift to the composer's pianist son, Maxim, is tonight in the hands of Alexei Volodin, one of the standout Russian pianists of our time. It begins playfully before a tender, romantic, cinematic, slow movement. After the concerto come the variations for piano solo Shostakovich wrote in 1957 to mark the centenary of the death of the Russian composer Glinka.

In the Eleventh Symphony, subtitled 'The Year 1905', Shostakovich turns to the uprising in St Petersburg, witnessed by his own father, in which protesters were brutally gunned down outside the Winter Palace by Tsarists forces. It's a sombre, intensely dramatic work - "a symphony written in blood" - in which songs of the failed Revolution are remembered. Political unrest of a different stripe affected Shostakovich in 1956-7 at the time he wrote the symphony, with the Hungarian Uprising abruptly halted by Russian Communist forces. Russian poet Anna Akhmatovar was moved to write of the piece: 'Those songs were like white birds flying against a terrible black sky.’

WED 22:45 The Essay (m0003zp4)
New Generation Thinkers 2019

Should Salman Rushdie Live and Let Die ?

You are a liberal who opposes art being banned. But would a movie that calls for you to be killed change your view of censorship? This was the quandary facing Salman Rushdie when filmmakers in Pakistan produced a James Bond-style action thriller in which a trio of Islamist guerrillas are inspired by Ayatollah Khomeini’s fatwa to track down and kill the author of The Satanic Verses. In the year of the 30th anniversary of the fatwa against the novelist from Iranian clerics, film historian Dr Iain Robert Smith explores what this largely-forgotten episode from the Rushdie affair can tell us about current debates on freedom of expression.

Ian Robert Smith researches the impact of globalisation on popular films made around the world. He teaches at King’s College, London.

The Essay was recorded at the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead.

THU 12:00 Composer of the Week (m0003zg8)
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

Distracted Times

Donald Macleod considers the effect war and turmoil had on Haydn’s life and career, and how those infuences shaped his compositions.

Joseph Haydn’s prodigious creativity earned him the titles Father of the Symphony and Father of the String Quartet. However, he was also occupied with sacred music throughout his career. This week, as Donald Macleod follows Haydn’s journey from humble choirboy to Europe’s most celebrated composer, he shines the spotlight on music from Haydn’s many settings of the Mass. It's music that is as chock-full of invention and character as any of the instrumental forms he made his own.

Austria was in an almost constant state of war during Haydn’s life. While he was protected from front line warfare, he was always engaged with the politics of his time. Haydn disliked Napoleon and was horrified at news of the French Revolution. Donald recounts a story about music transcending politics when an 'enemy' soldier visited Haydn at the end of his life and sang an aria from The Creation oratorio, bringing tears of joy to the old man’s eyes.

Thursday Opera Matinee: Ivan Zajc's Nikola Subic Zrinski

Ivo Lipanović conducts a performance of the Croatian opera Nikola Šubić Zrinski, from the Vatroslav Lisinski Concert Hall in Zagreb.

Written in 1876 by Ivan Zajc, who overhauled musical life in Zagreb during his 30-year reign as director of the city's opera, it tells the true story of the Battle of Szigetvár and Captain Nikola Zrinski who led his forces into a heroic last stand against the Ottoman army and Suleiman the Magnificent. Well received at its premiere its enduring appeal in Croatia is due in large part to its climactic chorus, "U boj, u boj!" ("To battle, to battle!") which has been adopted as a popular patriotic song.

Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No 2 in C minor, Op 18

20.10 Interval Music

Schubert: Symphony No 9 in C major, D 944 (The Great)

Boris Giltburg (piano)
BBC National Orchestra of Wales
Alexander Vedernikov (conductor)

In tonight’s concert we offer two towering works of the Romantic period, from the tolling chords which open Rachmaninov's tempestuous second Piano Concerto to the triumphant ending of the work that was dubbed Schubert's "Great" C major symphony. Rachmaninov was deeply depressed by the poor critical reception to his first symphony, and felt completely unable to compose. Undertaking a course of daily suggestive hypnosis for three months in order to regain his ability to write music bore remarkable fruit in the composition of his second piano concerto. The critical response to this piece was highly favourable and it has endured as one of his best loved pieces. Similarly, Schubert's "Great" C major symphony is often heralded as one of his greatest works. Sadly, Schubert was not able to enjoy its success; the first recorded public performance did not occur until ten years after his death, no orchestra being prepared to take it seriously due to its length and the difficulty of the parts. Happily, his fellow composer and critic Robert Schumann saved the work from obscurity when he sent it to Mendelssohn who, in spite of complaints from contemporary orchestras, continued to champion the work until it achieved the recognition it so richly deserves.


THU 22:00 Free Thinking (m0003zgn)
The Unsaid

Some people, some times, just can’t say what they want to. But why not? We attempt to fill the silence by exploring the psychological, physical, or cultural reasons with a graphic novelist, a writer, a filmmaker who stopped speaking, and a writer and trustee of the North East Dads and Lads project. Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough chairs a Free Thinking Festival debate at Sage Gateshead.

Sarah Moss is a novelist and Professor at the University of Warwick. Her most recent book Ghost Wall articulates the tangled space of love, abuse and resistance. Her previous novels include Cold Earth, Night Waking, Signs for Lost Children and The Tidal Zone. She has written for The Guardian, New Statesman, The Independent and BBC Radio.

Michael Richardson is a Lecturer in Human Geography at Newcastle University. He has longstanding research interests in masculinities and intergenerational relationships on post-industrial Tyneside. He is a trustee of North East Young Dads and Lads project and works closely with Seven Stories: The National Centre for Children's Books.

Harriet Shawcross is an award-winning filmmaker and journalist. Her first book Unspeakable reflects on how, as a teenager, she stopped speaking at school for almost a year, communicating only when absolutely necessary. It mixes personal experience with travel diaries and interviews including Eve Ensler creator of The Vagina Monologues.

Una is a comics artist and writer. Her first graphic novel Becoming Unbecoming is about Una’s own encounters with sexual violence and survival. Her other titles include On Sanity: One Day In Two Lives and Cree, commissioned by New Writing North and Durham Book Festival.

THU 22:45 The Essay (m0003zgq)
New Generation Thinkers 2019

The Ottoman Empire, Power and the Sea

From Turkish raiders who occupied an island in the Bristol Channel in the seventeenth century to questions about patrolling the Mediterranean Sea now - Michael Talbot asks how can power be exerted over water? What do borders mean in the featureless desert of the ocean? These were questions faced by the Ottoman Empire in the 17th and 18th centuries when an imaginary line was used to create a legally enforced border at sea for the Sultans in Istanbul who called themselves “rulers of the two seas”, the Black and the Mediterranean.

Michael Talbot lectures about the history of the Ottoman Empire and the Modern Middle East at the University of Greenwich, London.

The Essay was recorded at Sage Gateshead as part of the Free Thinking Festival.

FRI 12:00 Composer of the Week (m00041g9)
Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

Popular Composer

Donald Macleod turns his attention to the high regard Haydn enjoyed from his friends, colleagues and audiences. Also, the extraordinary story of how Haydn lost his head.

Joseph Haydn’s prodigious creativity earned him the titles Father of the Symphony and Father of the String Quartet. However, he was also occupied with sacred music throughout his career. This week, as Donald Macleod follows Haydn’s journey from humble choirboy to Europe’s most celebrated composer, he shines the spotlight on music from Haydn’s many settings of the Mass. It's music that is as chock-full of invention and character as any of the instrumental forms he made his own.

Today, Donald draws a picture of Haydn’s immense popularity, not just as a comoposer but as a man. The affection in which he was held only grew as he entered old age.

Free Thinking - A Writer's Emotions

In our second programme recorded at the 2019 Free Thinking Festival Ian McMillan explores the emotional rollercoaster of being a writer – from the excitement of the idea (or the first line of a poem), through the sense of inadequacy writers often experience during the editing process, to the ultimate satisfaction (or bathos) of publication and performance – alongside his guests, who share their own creative journeys.

On stage he’s joined by the poets Tara Bergin and Raymond Antrobus, novelist Denise Mina, and musicians Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbert.

Raymond Antrobus is a poet, teacher and facilitator. He's the author of the pamphlet ‘To Sweeten Bitter’ (Out-Spoken), and his debut poetry collection 'The Perseverance' (Penned in the Margins) has just won The Ted Hughes Award for New Work in Poetry and has also been shortlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize.
Denise Mina’s crime novels include The Long Drop, The DI Alex Morrow series, the Paddy Meehan series which were filmed by BBC TV, The Garnetthill series, and graphic novels. She has won many prizes and has been inducted into the Crime Writer’s Association Hall of Fame.
Tara Bergin was named a Next Generation Poet by the Poetry Society in 2014 following her collection This is Yarrow. Her second collection is the T.S.Eliot nominated collection 'The Tragic Death of Eleanor Marx'. She lectures in writing poetry at Newcastle University.
Aidan Moffat is a vocalist and musician whose collaborative album released with guitarist and singer RM Hubbert is called 'Here Lies the Body'.

Presenter: Ian McMillan
Producer: Faith Lawrence


FRI 22:45 The Essay (m00041gr)
New Generation Thinkers 2019

Where Do Human Rights Come From?

You don't have to be religious to believe that, as the United Nation's Universal Declaration of Human Rights states, "all human beings have the right to be free and treated equally." However, drawing on a wide range of examples including Shakespeare's Richard III to Disney's Jiminy Cricket, New Generation Thinker Dafydd Mills Daniel argues that the UN's emphasis on "reason and conscience" as the drivers of liberty and equality make the modern conception of human rights more religious, and less liberal, than both secular proponents and conservative critics have supposed.

Dafydd Mills Daniel is the McDonald Departmental Lecturer in Christian Ethics and Theology at Jesus College, University of Oxford. He is researching Newton and alchemy

The Essay was recorded at the Free Thinking Festival at Sage Gateshead and - like all the New Generation Thinker Essays - you can hear a longer version with audience questions as a BBC Arts&Ideas podcast.
