SAT 00:30 Diary of a Young Naturalist, by Dara McAnulty (m000jhpv)
Episode 5

Diary of a Young Naturalist chronicles the turning of 15-year-old Dara McAnulty’s world. Beginning in spring, his diary takes us through a year in his home patch in Northern Ireland.

These vivid and moving diary entries about his connection to wildlife and the way he sees the world are raw in their telling and urgent in their message. Diary of a Young Naturalist portrays Dara’s intense connection to the natural world, and his perspective as a teenager juggling exams and trying to build friendships alongside a life of campaigning.

“I was diagnosed with Asperger’s/autism aged five … By age seven I knew I was very different, I had got used to the isolation, my inability to break through into the world of talking about football or Minecraft was not tolerated. Then came the bullying. Nature became so much more than an escape; it became a life-support system.”

SAT 21:45 Rabbit Redux (b09h3y87)
Episode 8

John Updike's masterful Rabbit quintet established Harry "Rabbit" Angstrom as the quintessential American White middle class male. The first book Rabbit, Run was published in 1960 to critical acclaim. Rabbit Redux is the second in the series, published in 1971 and charting the end of the sixties - featuring, among other things, the first American moon landing and the Vietnam War.

Despite its very strong language, sex, and reflection of racist attitudes of the time, Time Magazine said of the book and its author, "Updike owns a rare verbal genius, a gifted intelligence and a sense of tragedy made bearable by wit. A masterpiece."

It's extraordinary how many of its themes reverberate down to the present day.

Programme 2, 2020

(2/6)
Stuart Maconie's My Generation quiz focuses on the events and culture of different decades within living memory. Three contestants of varying ages each answer questions on their own particular chosen decade - which could be the one they grew up in, or one they know plenty about for some other reason. They then also get questions on a different decade in which they were significantly younger, or older, or perhaps not even born. Stuart hopes to find out just how much the generations know about one another's heroes, heroines and heritage.

Producer: Paul Bajoria


SAT 23:30 Natalie Haynes Stands Up for the Classics (m000jfpc)
Series 6

Penthesilea, Amazon Warrior Queen

Natalie Haynes tells of Penthesilea, Amazon warrior queen, in charge of ‘a bunch of golden-shielded, silver-axed, man-loving, boy-killing women,’ with a natty line in ankle boots, and even trousers, a scandalous item of clothing at the time. These fighting women were respected as exceptional warriors and Penthesilea was given a hero's burial when she died in battle.

Unusually for women in antiquity, many Amazon's names are recorded (on vases) and they are excellent: 'She Who Lets the Dogs Out'; 'She Who Is Enthusiastic at Sex'; 'She Who Fights like a Man'. Although Amazons are regarded as mythological figures, there is strong evidence for the existence of nomadic fighting women from burial grounds in the Russian steppes.

In this locked down, more intimate version of her show, Natalie offers escape to a different realm: the mythological. As fresh and funny as ever, Natalie brings us new insights into the original girl gang, as well as gossipy erudition from a couple of thousand years of culture, with the help of Professor Edith Hall.

The Cathedral was to be the location for the 2020 National Twelve Bell Striking Contest, due to be held on June 20th but now cancelled due to the Covid-19 epidemic.

SUN 06:05 Something Understood (b092jvrg)
There's No Place Like Home

Rabbi Shoshana Boyd Gelfand examines our relationship with the shifting notion of home and the importance of home to her Jewish faith and other religious traditions.

Shoshana reveals that she's always been fascinated by precisely what it is that we call home and how our homes inform our identities. She discusses the use within the Jewish home of the Mizrach - a piece of art that hangs on a wall allowing the inhabitants to orient themselves towards Jerusalem. She explains that this orientation to a spiritual home is a kind of internal map, "a way of positioning ourselves so that we feel rooted wherever we may be".

Exploring the concept of "returning home" in a musical sense, in which a composer skilfully resolves a chord sequence in a way that sounds uniquely satisfying and conclusive, Shoshana draws upon the music of Chopin and Schumann. These pieces sit along musical celebrations of the home from Crosby, Stills and Nash, bluesman Blind Willie McTell and Simon and Garfunkel.

Shoshana describes the centrality of the home to the Jews, whose rituals are mostly performed at home rather than at the synagogue, before concluding that, for her, home is ultimately defined by the people she holds dear rather than any one fixed location.

Episode 7: A Nightingale at Balmoral - Florence Nightingale 1856

Lucy Worsley, Chief Curator at Historic Royal Palaces, continues her 10 part exploration of Queen Victoria's reign through significant encounters. 7: A Nightingale at Balmoral - Florence Nightingale - September 1856

Miss Florence Nightingale and her nurses had put the British Army to shame with their exposure, in Crimea, of the shockingly poor medical treatment given to the soldier. Florence became a celebrity, and Queen Victoria was a huge fan, admiring Miss Nightingale’s modesty and her apparently tender care for her men. In reality, Florence was an ambitious, tenacious and entirely un-Victorian woman, who had the trick of maintaining the self-effacing manner that powerful men would respect. In 1856 Florence accepted an invitation to Balmoral, not because she admired the Queen, but because she wanted to argue the case for medical reform. At Balmoral, the cool veteran of Crimea found Victoria shallow: 'the least self-reliant person’ she’d ever known. Florence also though that queen, pregnant for the ninth time, was too fond of dancing at the whiskey-fuelled Balmoral balls. During their time together in the pseudo-Scottish fantasy land of Balmoral, no one had a very good time, and each of the two very different women failed to understand each other.

SUN 15:00 Electric Decade (m000jnkk)
A Room of One's Own

Virginia Woolf's funny, provoking and insightful feminist text on female creativity dramatised for radio by Linda Marshall Griffiths.

Part of Electric Decade : classic titles that influenced and characterised the 1920's.

WOMAN.....Indira Varma
MARY SETON/ CHARLOTTE BRONTE.....Jenny Platt
JUDITH SHAKESPEARE/JANE AUSTEN/MARY CARMICHAEL.....Anjli Mohindra
WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE/ NICK GREEN.....Sacha Dhawan
TREVELYAN/SHAKESPEARE'S FATHER.....Colin Tierney

Directed by Nadia Molinari

A Room of One's Own was recorded and edited during lockdown with actors, director, writer and studio managers all in their own homes.

It is 1928, a woman is asked to talk of women and writing. She takes a walk in the university town of 'Oxbridge' where she is refused entry to the gardens and to the library and discovers the poverty of the one female college there. She decides to hunt through the British Museum for proof that women even existed in history.

"Literature is impoverished beyond our counting by the doors that have been shut upon women."

She imagines what would have happened if Shakespeare had had a sister and imagines conversations with the great British female novelists and so comes to an understanding of the difficulties that face the female writer and women who want to have a creative life.

"Who shall measure the heat and violence of a poet's heart when caught and tangled in a woman's body?"

She proposes a different kind of life for a woman.

A Room of One’s Own is one of the greatest feminist polemics of the twentieth century, but also a narrative of extraordinary beauty, humour and humanity. Its case is for the existence of female writers and its proof is in the genius of its writer. Award winning writer Linda Marshall Griffiths brings her skill as a radio dramatist to this classic political text by Virgina Woolf making it a lively work of drama.

Game Changer: How the UK played on during coronavirus

From the Olympics to Euro 2020, the world’s biggest sporting events have fallen like dominoes because of coronavirus. But as the global pandemic was declared and most European countries closed their sports stadiums, the UK allowed events to carry on with hundreds of thousands of fans coming together to watch everything from Champions League football to the Cheltenham Gold Cup. File on 4 casts a forensic eye over the decisions that were made before the UK went into lockdown, speaks to those at the heart of these big events and asks whether allowing them to go ahead, enabled the virus to spread and put more lives at risk.

Alfred Dreyfus was a Jewish army officer who was convicted on false charges of passing military secrets to the Germans. He spent several years in prison on Devil's Island, and was only released and exonerated after a long campaign led by eminent figures such Emile Zola.
 
Although the circumstances of the Dreyfus affair are very different to those surrounding Brexit, there are certain parallels – for example, the way that people came to identify themselves as either Dreyfusards or anti-Dreyfusards.
 
The Dreyfus affair and its aftermath convulsed France for decades, with French society split down the middle about whether Dreyfus was guilty or innocent.
 
How important are societal divides like these?  Should they be allowed to run their natural course - or should steps be taken to encourage “healing”, as Boris Johnson recently urged?
 
In this edition of Analysis, Professor Anand Menon, Director of the UK in a Changing Europe, looks back at the Dreyfus affair, and asks what lessons we can learn - and whether they can help us better understand what is happening in Britain as the country faces up to the reality of Brexit, and the coronavirus crisis.

Peter Macfadyen and rebuilding democracy

Helen Lewis meets the writers and thinkers who are breaking new ground.

From politics to economics, from tech to the study of how we live, things are changing fast. Old certainties have not been under such challenge for decades.

So each week, we give the whole programme over to a single in-depth, close-up interview with someone whose big idea is bidding to change our world.

Helen’s challenge is to make sense of their new idea, to find out more about the person behind it – and to test what it has to offer us against the failures of the past

In this episode, Helen talks to Peter Macfadyen, the sometime gardener, undertaker and former mayor of Frome in Somerset who, along with a group of independents, took over the town council and pioneered a new kind of local politics.

Doing away with formal rules and regulations, Independents for Frome opened up the council to a diverse range of community groups, creating a model for engagement and participation that is now being emulated around the country and beyond, thanks to Peter Macfadyen’s DIY guide: Flatpack Democracy. But, Helen asks, how does it work – and what are its limits?

The Future

‘The future is a foreign country; they do things differently there’ – to misquote LP Hartley. Andrew Marr talks to Riel Miller, an economist at UNESCO, about the difficulties of understanding and predicting what happens in the future. Miller argues that individuals, institutions and governments fail to grasp its profound unpredictability, where the only certainty is radical change. He’s calling for a programme of future literacy, designed to challenge present complacency and improve preparedness for what’s on the horizon.

But given what we know about the world today, and what we can guess about the future, is it okay to have a child? That is the question posed by Meehan Crist, writer-in-residence in Biological Sciences at Columbia University. She tracks the resurgence of Malthus and his powerful, terrifying idea that if the global population grows too large, we are all doomed. Crist unpicks the argument that responsibility for stopping climate change and safeguarding the future rests solely with the individual.

Ep 1 - A Parisian Beginning

Wendy Moore's account of the trailblazing women who set up three military hospitals during WW1 is a tribute to their brilliant and courageous work. Louisa Garrett Anderson and Flora Murray were the two pioneering doctors who put their campaigning for Votes for Women to one side, so that they could turn their attention to the casualties of war. They made their mark by setting up and running a military hospital on Endell Street in the heart of London, where over the course of the war they treated 26,000 wounded soldiers. Anderson and Murray demonstrated, along with their staff of women surgeons, nurses and orderlies, that they were supremely capable in so many fields of medicine, but when the war ended, their achievements were once again side-lined, and the story of Endell Street forgotten.

MON 12:06 Girl, Woman, Other, by Bernardine Evaristo (m000jp2c)
Amma

'Girl, Woman, Other’ is a wonderfully vivid portrayal of a group of interconnecting characters – mostly women, black and British – that provides a picture of contemporary Britain and looks back at the impact of Britain’s involvement in the colonial history of Africa and the Caribbean.

Amma is a playwright, now in her fifties, whose new play ‘The Last Amazon of Dahomey’ is being premiered at The National Theatre in London. In attendance are her daughter Yazz and her old friends the rebellious Dominique and Shirley, a jaded teacher who has struggled for decades working in a funding-deprived London school. Carole is one of Shirley’s past students who almost threw away a bright future by mixing with wayward friends. Carole’s mother Bummi is a cleaner for a wealthy Camberwell lady and worries about her daughter’s lack of identity despite her obvious achievements. Penelope is a colleague of Shirley’s and Winsome is Shirley’s mother. La Tisha is a supermarket supervisor and Megan, who identifies as gender free, has changed her name to Morgan. She is very close with her great grandmother Hattie. Her mother Grace was raised in a home for girls before going to work as a maid. She eventually met and married Joseph Ryendale and became the mistress of his family farm, which their daughter Hattie eventually inherits.

This is a wonderfully hopeful story whereby everyone’s story passes on to another and takes us on a glorious journey through the lives of these very different, yet amazing people.

Glass Souls

Anton Lesser, Aiysha Hart, Rufus Wright and Kirsty Bushell lead an impressive ensemble cast in this engrossing, historical fantasy from creators John Scott Dryden and Mike Walker.

The great artist Piero has arrived from across the seas with his assistant Angel. He has been commissioned by the Empire’s self-styled “Queen Mother” Fatima (Kirsty Bushell) to create a great work glorifying her rule. But after a period of brutal occupation, Tumanbay is no longer the gleaming city it was - and tensions and suspicions abound.

The blind Grand Master Amalric (Anton Lesser), leader of a fearsome religious order of knights, has his own plans for the city - plans that involve the religious figurehead, the Hafiz. But the Hafiz has gone missing. The only person who can find him is spymaster Gregor (Rufus Wright) who is languishing in the Palace of the Blind, a place in the desert where unwanted officials and rulers are exiled.

Programme 3, 2020

(3/6)
Stuart Maconie welcomes another three contestants to the My Generation quiz, which focuses on the events and culture of different decades within living memory. They will each be answering questions on their own particular chosen decade - which could be the one they grew up in, or one they know plenty about for some other reason. They then also have to answer on a different decade, in which they were significantly younger, or older, or perhaps not even born. Stuart hopes to find out just how much the generations know about one another's heroes, heroines and heritage.

There'll be plenty of news clips, TV themes, extracts from pop songs and familiar voices from different decades. The questions cover popular culture, sport, politics and world events, technological innovations and social history. Whatever your age, you may find yourself surprised at some of the things you know that the contestants don't.

Robert Schumann - Frauenliebe und Leben

Robert Schumann's setting of poems by Adelbert von Chamisso, Frauenliebe und Leben, is a controversial concert choice in a post 'me-too' era. A male poet and male composer giving voice to a female narrator who describes her adulation for a man, her blossoming love, sex and ultimately sense of abject loss is tricky for any self-respecting female performer. But the craft and skill of the composing, the relationship Schumann had with his brilliant young wife Clara and the way that is reflected in the manuscript and the music is at the heart of this episode of Tales from the Stave.
Clemency is joined by Sopranos Naomi Louisa O'Connell and Alla Kravchuk along with pianist Brent Funderburk and the Juilliard professor Michael Griffel who explore the corrected copyists manuscript and the more extraordinary sketches made over two days, in which Schumann set down a clear vision of the full eight song cycle..

The Return of Reality?

Before Covid-19 hit, the latest research showed we were more polarised than ever. We broadly agree on the issues - it's the emotions where things get tricky. If someone is part of the other tribe then we want little to do with them.

And the more polarised we are, the more prone we are to what philosophers call 'knowledge resistance' - rejecting information that doesn't fit our worldview.

If we're in a situation where identity trumps truth, is there anything that can pull us back to reality?

Peter Pomerantsev, author of This Is Not Propaganda: Adventures in the War Against Reality, looks at whether Covid-19 could bring us back towards a sense of shared reality - or whether it might push us further apart.

MON 21:00 From Our Home Correspondent (m000jg94)
In the latest programme, Mishal Husain introduces dispatches from journalists and writers reflecting the range of life across the UK.

She begins and ends in Edinburgh. First, the BBC's Social Affairs Correspondent, Michael Buchanan, reveals how a renowned city centre doctor is using one public health emergency - Covid-19 - to tackle another - drug-related deaths among the homeless. Could a notoriously difficult medical and social problem prove amenable to new approaches?

Cabin fever is a literal risk for those living aboard narrow boats at the moment. And while self-sufficiency is a characteristic of those who live afloat, as Lois Pryce has been discovering among users on the Grand Union Canal, their ingenuity is being tested by the relatively prosaic requirements for water and fuel.

It's once again possible for those in England who are looking to move house to visit potential new homes in person. What, though, of those who are already part of a chain with buyers and sellers ready to go ahead? Lesley Curwen, a business reporter for more than three decades, finds herself in just that situation. Will she make her dream move to the West Country or will there be a last-minute hitch?

Foster carers become accustomed to all types of placements. Emily Unia's parents have decades of experience but even so it's been special for them to share the last several weeks with a young boy and his baby sister who arrived just days before lockdown. She reveals how they've all been coping.

And, back in the Scottish capital, Christopher Harding provides an amusing insight into the world of home schooling as his three children adjust to their new teachers and lessons. How do the ambitions of the new staff fare amid the realities of the schoolroom?

MON 23:30 The British Road to Bolshevism (b098ht02)
In the two decades prior to the Russian Revolution in 1917, Vladimir Lenin and other prominent Russian political exiles spent periods of time in London - using the unique research resources of the British Museum, writing revolutionary pamphlets and journals, organising the smuggling of protest literature back to their home country, arguing fiercely with each other over ideological disputes and the practicalities of the struggle, as well as enjoying visits to pubs, the music hall and Speakers' Corner.

The British authorities showed greater tolerance of the emigres and their insurrectionary activities than did many other European countries, and some major revolutionary party conferences were held in London. This included the crucial 1903 congress, where the party split into the two factions of Bolsheviks (the 'hards') and Mensheviks (the 'softs') - a split with huge repercussions for the revolution and the course of Russian history.

In this programme, Martin Rosenbaum explores how events in London played a role in leading up to the Russian Revolution.

Jane Goodall on living with wild chimpanzees

Jane Goodall, aged 86, reflects on the years she spent living with the wild chimpanzees in Gombe in eastern Tanzania and tells Jim Al Khalili why she believes the best way to bring about change is to ‘creep into people’s hearts’. Jane shot to fame when she appeared on the cover of National Geographic magazine in 1963 and appeared in a documentary film directed by Orson Welles. Her ground breaking observations introduced us to the social and emotional lives of wild chimpanzees and changed our view of what it is to be human. Images of her younger self play wrestling with baby chimps make Jane feel slightly apprehensive now but at the time she didn’t give it a second thought. However, she did take care to protect her young son. Seeing distressing footage of chimps who were living in captivity, she gave up fieldwork to become an activist, working to liberate chimpanzees that were being used for medical research or sold for meat or as pets, and setting up chimp sanctuaries for animals that were no longer able to live in the wild. For the last thirty years, she has campaigned gently but relentlessly to protect wild animals and wild places, touring the world and performing on stage in front of huge audiences. Her global youth programme, Roots and Shoots has inspired and empowered millions of people to understand and respect nature, leading some to call her ‘the mother Theresa of the environment’. Although she would prefer to be known as 'sister to mother earth'.

Veggie roots: Miles Chambers meets Rachel Ama

The poet Miles Chambers grew up in a veggie household in the 1970s. As Miles got older, he grew to love the melding of Caribbean flavours with the fats of meats. He feels guilty about leaving the lifestyle he grew up with behind - especially now plant-based diets are mainstream. He wants to talk to those who have played a role in the meat-free movement, about their lives and experiences – about how the movement has changed over the years, and whether he should return to his plant-based roots.

Rachel Ama’s cooking and Youtube channel is all about making Caribbean food with vegan ingredients. Rachel grew up loving chicken, but after she was horrified by a documentary about meat production, she stopped eating meat overnight – since then she’s spent years experimenting with capturing her St Lucian roots and her childhood memories of food using only plants.

Both Rachel and Miles are interested in making healthy plant-based options accessible for everyone – but can Rachel convince Miles that it’s possible to return to his veggie roots and still get the same satisfaction from food?

Ep2 - An Invitation from the War Office

In Wendy Moore's new book it's 1914 and the trailblazing doctors Flora Murray and Louisa Garrett Anderson get to work on the front line in war torn France. Later, the success of the first military hospital they set up in Paris is to repeated close to France's border with Belgium, and in London the War Office prepares to make an extraordinary invitation. Read by Jessica Raine.

Endell Street is the new book by the bestselling author Wendy Moore and is a a tribute to Louisa Garrett Anderson and Flora Murray and their brilliant and courageous work. Setting aside their campaign for the suffragette movement, they made their mark by setting up and running two military hospitals in France and one in the heart of London, on Endell Street. Over the four years that Endell Street was in operation, Murray and Anderson treated thousands of wounded soldiers, and along with their staff of women surgeons, nurses and orderlies, they demonstrated that they were supremely capable in so many fields of medicine. Yet when the war ended, their achievements were once again side-lined, and the part they played was forgotten.

TUE 11:00 Weans’ World (m000jmsn)
Audrey Gillan returns to Shettleston in the East End of Glasgow, where she grew up in the 1970s, to capture a child's-eye view of the place now.

The headline story coming out of Glasgow's East End is stark - up to 43% of children there are living in poverty. But indicators of deprivation can be difficult to interpret. And spending time with the children themselves, as Audrey does over a period of half a year, reawakens a rich, almost forgotten, memory store of the texture of childhood - its smells and flavours, the intoxication of a new friendship, the excitement of putting on a show, the rollercoaster of everyday happinesses and cloudier moments.

Audrey is helped by 11-year-old Jayden, a wannabe celebrity who she first meets at Fuse Youth Café, which Audrey remembers as an old pub. He's a shy performer but instinctive sound recordist who documents his life, both in and out of his home.

She also gets drawn into the culinary adventures of John and Holly, aged 7 and 8 respectively, at the Pavilion after-school club and spends time with Alicja, an 11-year-old who was born in Poland and now keeps an eye out for her older brother, as well as performing on her ukulele each morning to calm her schoolmates. And like all the kids Audrey meets, she spends every spare moment on Tik Tok!

Carole’s mother Bummi is a cleaner for a wealthy Camberwell lady and worries about her daughter’s lack of identity despite her obvious achievements. Penelope is a colleague of Shirley’s and Winsome is Shirley’s mother. La Tisha is a supermarket supervisor and Megan, who identifies as gender free, has changed her name to Morgan. She is very close with her Great Grandmother Hattie. Her mother Grace was raised in a home for girls before going to work as a maid. She eventually met and married Joseph Ryendale and became the mistress of his family farm, which their daughter Hattie eventually inherits.

This is a wonderfully hopeful story whereby everyone’s story passes on to another and takes us on a glorious journey through the lives of these very different, yet amazing people.

TUE 15:30 The Talking Mongoose (m000hvb9)
Drama-documentary by Robin Brooks telling the strange but true story of Gef the Talking Mongoose, and the dreadful trouble he caused at the BBC.

In the 1930s, a BBC employee called Richard Lambert, who was interested in psychic phenomena, investigated the story of Gef the Talking Mongoose - a supernatural creature with a foul mouth and disturbing habits, said to haunt a remote farmhouse on the Isle of Man. Thinking to amuse the public in the silly season, Lambert published an account of his findings, little knowing that Gef would cause a national scandal, prompt questions in the House, drag in Lord Reith himself, and provoke a front-page court-case.

This drama-documentary tells the story of Gef and his unfortunate chronicler Richard Lambert, with rather more input from the Mongoose and rather less attention to documentary realism than is either customary or decorous.

Written by Robin Brooks.

Dolly joins Matthew Parris and Dr Tamar Jeffers McDonald, Reader in Film and Head of the School of Arts at the University of Kent, to discuss dancing, divorces and dogs. They explore whether the image of Doris Day as a happy-go-lucky girl-next-door is a true reflection of the life and character of one of the twentieth century's most famous stars.

Ep 3 - Early Days at the Military Hospital

In Wendy Moore's account of the World War 1 hospital run by two pioneering women doctors, Flora Murray and Louisa Garrett Anderson, it is early days. Following their success in setting up two military hospitals in France, they are now in London, where they have opened a third hospital, Endell Street. The casualties are beginning to arrive in large numbers. The work is exacting but Murray and Anderson's all women staff are determined to make a success of treating their patients. The reader is Jessica Raine.

In her new book, the bestselling author, Wendy Moore, tells the forgotten story of the military hospital set up in London during World War 1 by two trailblazing women doctors. Louisa Garrett Anderson and Flora Murray put their campaigning for Votes for Women to one side, so that they could turn their attention to the casualties of war. After setting up two hospitals in war torn France they made their mark by running a hospital in a former workhouse on Endell Street in the heart of London,, where over the course of the war they treated 26,000 wounded soldiers. Anderson and Murray demonstrated, along with their staff of women surgeons, nurses and orderlies, that they were supremely capable in so many fields of medicine, but when the war ended, their achievements were once again side-lined.

Young couple Brendan and Angela are running from their doubts about their rapidly approaching wedding; librarian Cathy is in pursuit of a new life following a health scare; Syrian refugee Yana races from the trauma of her past; and recent retiree Maurice is determined to get fit for his family, step by painful step, even if he’s not actually part of their lives right now…

Carole

‘Girl Woman Other’ is a wonderfully vivid portrayal of a group of interconnecting characters – mostly women, black and British – that provides a picture of contemporary Britain and looks back at the impact of Britain’s involvement in the colonial history of Africa and the Caribbean.

Amma is a playwright, now in her fifties, whose new play ‘The Last Amazon of Dahomey’ is being premiered at The National Theatre in London. In attendance are her daughter Yazz and her old friends the rebellious Dominique and Shirley, a jaded teacher who has struggled for decades working in a funding deprived London school. Carole is one of Shirley’s past students who almost threw away a bright future by mixing with wayward friends. Carole’s mother Bummi is a cleaner for a wealthy Camberwell lady and worries about her daughter’s lack of identity despite her obvious achievements. Penelope is a colleague of Shirley’s and Winsome is Shirley’s mother. La Tisha is a supermarket supervisor and Megan, who identifies as gender free, has changed her name to Morgan.

Guuuurk (Kevin Eldon) rejoins the team, and they race to the rescue in a hijacked Martian tripod.

But too late. They arrive just in time to witness the Professor’s execution.

Rudderless without Quanderhorn, the team – Brian (Ryan Sampson), Gemma (Cassie Layton), Jenkins (John Sessions) and Troy (Freddie Fox) along with Guuuurk and Diving Suit Dolores (Rachel Atkins) – flee aimlessly.

But in the very pit of their despair, hope arrives in an unexpected package – a dormobile full of ravenous trained monkeys.

Meanwhile, the Imperial Martian Opera is mopping up the blood on the stage from Act One of Cozi Tanned Floozie, blissfully unaware that an unexpectedly spectacular Act Two is about to follow – and it’s nothing to do with the giant exploding banana.

In Wendy Moore's new book about Endell Street, the military hospital run by the two trailblazing doctors, Flora Murray and Louisa Garrett Anderson, there are breakthroughs in medicine. First of all, there's taxing work in the laundry room.

The acclaimed author Wendy Moore's new book about the trailblazing women who set up three military hospitals during WW1 is a tribute to their brilliant and courageous work. Louisa Garrett Anderson and Flora Murray were the two doctors who put their campaigning for Votes for Women to one side, so that they could turn their attention to the casualties of war. They made their mark by setting up and running a military hospital on Endell Street in the heart of London, where over the course of the war they treated 26,000 wounded soldiers. Anderson and Murray demonstrated, along with their staff of women surgeons, nurses and orderlies, that they were supremely capable in so many fields of medicine, but when the war ended, their achievements were once again side-lined, and the story of Endell Street forgotten.

Michael Armitage

Michael Armitage is a Kenyan-born painter whose success has earned him exhibitions at Turner Contemporary, the Venice Biennale, MoMA in New York and, just before lockdown, at the Whitechapel Gallery in London. His work brings together the events, social and sexual issues that prevail in East Africa with his deep interest in Western painting.

Armitage was trained at the Slade and Royal Academy and his figurative work pays tribute to masters from Titian to Manet. In the paintings, he is not afraid to confront the dark side of life - the violence of a flaying, beatings and exorcism, sexual and religious intolerance - but he sets these scenes in a wider context than one country, prompting a reflection on universal inhumanity.

In the programme, we hear about Michael's unbringing and his life shared between London and Nairobi. We also discover his use of bark cloth instead of canvas as his painting surface. The cloth is cut from the softened bark of Lubugo tree and is traditionally used as shrouds in burial. The paintings are enriched by the texture and imperfections and stitching of the bark cloth which is a constant reminder of the African-ness of the work.

The programme is presented by critic and author Charlotte Jensen.

THU 14:15 Rumpole (b03y38kc)
Rumpole and the Old Boy Net

We rejoin Rumpole and Hilda in 1964. Hilda is worried about the choice of school for their son, Nicholas. Hilda wants Rumpole to become a Q.C. in order to afford a decent education for Nicholas. Claude Erskine-Brown is also trying to take silk but he's distracted by the arrival in chambers of Rumpole's new pupil, Miss Phillida Trant.

Phillida assists Rumpole in the defence of Mr Napier Lee, who's charged with running a disorderly house near Victoria Station, and with the more serious accusation of blackmail. Mr Lee admits his customers all went to public school. And the alleged victim of the blackmail was at Lawnhurst College with Mr Lee, which is why Lee won't break the unwritten law and sneak on his old school chum.

Erskine-Brown is prosecuting at the Old Bailey, where Phillida recognises a familiar face in the press box. Isobel Vincent was at Bennenden with Phillida, and now works for the Evening Standard. With help from Phillida, Isobel publishes the name of the alleged victim. This public identification leads to Rumpole's successful defence on the charge of blackmail, but also puts Phillida in danger of prosecution for contempt of court.

Phillida works hard to get out of trouble with the law but, instead, finds herself drawn towards Rumpole - and into trouble of a more personal kind.

Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Rumpole in a story written by John Mortimer and adapted by Richard Stoneman.

Directed by Marilyn Imrie.

Absolute Zero

Melvyn Bragg and his guests discuss absolute zero, the lowest conceivable temperature.  In the early eighteenth century the French physicist Guillaume Amontons suggested that temperature had a lower limit.  The subject of low temperature became a fertile field of research in the nineteenth century, and today we know that this limit - known as absolute zero - is approximately minus 273 degrees Celsius.  It is impossible to produce a temperature exactly equal to absolute zero, but today scientists have come to within a billionth of a degree.  At such low temperatures physicists have discovered a number of strange new phenomena including superfluids, liquids capable of climbing a vertical surface.

Episode 3

Welcome To Wherever You Are is a stand-up show that refuses to be constrained by geography when it comes to booking guests; instead, it uses modern technology to connect a studio audience in the BBC Radio Theatre, London, with the best comedians in the world - no matter where they happen to be.

This week, host Andrew Maxwell is joined by the South Africa-born New Zealand-based Urzila Carlson to discuss flip-flops and marriage; he speaks to one of Saudi Arabia's first comedians, Rehman Akhtar, from nearby Bahrain about public flogging; and introduces New York's Aparna Nancherla, who has just filmed a half-hour special for Netflix.

Andrew Maxwell is a multi-award-winning stand up and double Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, familiar to Radio 4 audiences for his appearances on The News Quiz, The Now Show, and his own series Andrew Maxwell's Public Enemies. He's also appeared on Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, and Have I Got News For You.

Young couple Brendan and Angela are running from their doubts about their rapidly approaching wedding; librarian Cathy is in pursuit of a new life following a health scare; Syrian refugee Yana races from the trauma of her past; and recent retiree Maurice is determined to get fit for his family, step by painful step, even if he’s not actually part of their lives right now…

FRI 12:06 Girl, Woman, Other, by Bernardine Evaristo (m000jpfv)
Shirley

‘Girl Woman Other’ is a wonderfully vivid portrayal of a group of interconnecting characters – mostly women, black and British – that provides a picture of contemporary Britain and looks back at the impact of Britain’s involvement in the colonial history of Africa and the Caribbean.

Amma is a playwright, now in her fifties, whose new play ‘The Last Amazon of Dahomey’ is being premiered at The National Theatre in London. In attendance are her daughter Yazz and her old friends the rebellious Dominique and Shirley, a jaded teacher who has struggled for decades working in a funding deprived London school. Carole is one of Shirley’s past students who almost threw away a bright future by mixing with wayward friends. Carole’s mother Bummi is a cleaner for a wealthy Camberwell lady and worries about her daughter’s lack of identity despite her obvious achievements. Penelope is a colleague of Shirley’s and Winsome is Shirley’s mother. La Tisha is a supermarket supervisor and Megan, who identifies as gender free, has changed her name to Morgan. She is very close with her Great Grandmother Hattie. Her mother Grace was raised in a home for girls before going to work as a maid. She eventually met and married Joseph Ryendale and became the mistress of his family farm, which their daughter Hattie eventually inherits.

This is a wonderfully hopeful story whereby everyone’s story passes on to another and takes us on a glorious journey through the lives of these very different, yet amazing people.
