SAT SATURDAY 18 JULY 2015 SAT SAT 00:00 Ben Moor - Undone b00pkvk9 (Listen) SAT Series 3, Unending SAT Notting Hill's Carnival sees the potential end of the worlds SAT and new weirdness. Ben Moor's comic sci-fi saga with Alex SAT Tregear. SAT SAT 00:30 Fry's English Delight b00tgd1b (Listen) SAT Series 3, Accentuate the Negative SAT Contradiction is an addiction - from philosophical dialectic SAT to the verification of scientific and mathematical SAT hypotheses, and from religious controversy to traditional SAT pantomime exchanges with the audience. Oh No It Isn't, you SAT may think. Oh, yes, it very much is. SAT Stephen Fry examines various aspects of the subject with SAT language expert Professor David Crystal, theologian Melissa SAT Raphael-Levine, philosopher Anthony Grayling, and Oliver SAT Double, who has made a special study of comedy double-acts, SAT and will reveal just how vital contradiction is not only for SAT cross-patter partners but for the whole of comedy. SAT We learn about the Square of Opposition and about how there SAT is more than one way to be wrong. We find out just how the SAT law of double negatives work, and how beguiling and SAT sometimes surprising the oxymoron can be - that little SAT combination of a couple of words that cancel each other out SAT in some way. Well, it's only common sense, isn't it? SAT We also hear how those who claim to spot contradictions in SAT the Bible, or the Talmud, or the Koran are essentially SAT misguided, and we hear about a current development in SAT English that threatens to change one of the things that has SAT so far made the language different to French or German. SAT All of that, together with a lesson in when "No" does not SAT necessarily mean no - and when "Yes" doesn't really mean SAT yes, either.

SAT SAT 01:30 The Keskidee b00k4fv9 (Listen) SAT Oral Historian Alan Dein pieces together the remarkable and SAT pioneering story of the Keskidee, Britain's first arts SAT centre for the black community. Founded in the early 1970's SAT and tucked away in a church hall in the backstreets of SAT Islington, London, it forged new ground for a generation of SAT black British poets, actors, artists and directors. Today a SAT plaque is being unveiled by Islington Council in recognition SAT of the cultural importance of the Keskidee, whose story was SAT first told when this programme was originally broadcast in SAT 2009. SAT Dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson was the educational officer at SAT the Keskidee and Bob Marley shot the music video for 'Is SAT This Love?' there. It had its own drama company, artists in SAT residence and was a hub for African and Afro-Caribbean SAT politics and arts, as well as a creative nursery for SAT home-grown talent. It also catered for the needs of local SAT youth and gave a generation of black teenagers a space of SAT their own. But this massively influential cultural centre SAT also has a fascinating earlier history, when it served as a SAT progressive mission hall with a musical pastor and a SAT legendary silver band. Today the building has reverted to SAT being a religious base, housing an African church and a SAT devout and joyous congregation. Dein joins up the hidden SAT history of Gifford Hall which has played host to three SAT different communities, but which, curiously, have much in SAT common. SAT Producer: Neil McCarthy.

SAT SAT 08:00 Archive on 4 b01q7g6n (Listen) SAT Spoken Like a Woman SAT In the earliest days of radio, women commented on 'household SAT matters', talked about their garden or their travels - SAT writers Vita Sackville-West and Rebecca West were regulars - SAT and became Children's Hour 'Aunts'; but certainly never read SAT the news. On the other hand, the young BBC employed a number SAT of brilliant young women behind the microphone who shaped SAT the earliest days of programme-making. SAT But when they finally broke into the male bastion of SAT mainstream broadcasting, largely as a result of the second SAT world war, women's particular affinity with the microphone SAT was quickly recognised, notably on the World Service where SAT the female voice was soon found to be more effective at SAT reaching listeners at the other end of the Empire than that SAT of their male counterparts. SAT In this programme, Anne Karpf explores, with the help of the SAT sound archive, the way women's voices have shaped the sound SAT of British radio, from Auntie Kathleen of Children's Hour SAT and those formal talks of the early BBC, via the forces' SAT sweethearts like Jean Metcalfe and Marjorie Anderson, to SAT today's topliners like Martha Kearney and Bridget Kendall.

Yannios, an old fisherman, saves a boy from SUN drowning in the shadow of the mysterious Black Scarf Rock. SUN Alexandros Papadiamandis (1851 - 1911) was born on the SUN western Aegean island of Skiathos, where many of his short SUN stories are set. He has been compared to Dostoyevsky and SUN Hardy and, shares with them similar qualities in the great SUN European tradition of story-telling. His reflections on, and SUN observations of, Greek life - particularly on his native SUN Skiathos - define the Greek experience at the turn of the SUN last century in a way unattained by any of his (now SUN forgotten) contemporaries. SUN In these stories he explores the souls of ordinary men and SUN women as they succumb to, or struggle against, the power of SUN evil, and try to deal with life's ambiguities. Aware of the SUN way in which the past breathes life into the present, SUN Papadiamandis also delves into Greek mythology, as it SUN survived through people's belief in supernatural wonders on SUN both land and sea. SUN Mark Williams is well known as one of the stars of BBC TV's SUN The Fast Show ("Suits you, sir..!!") and for the role of Ron SUN Weasley's father in the Harry Potter films.

WED If you crave your daily coffee, can't get by without a WED cigarette, feel that mid-afternoon slump without your WED sugar-fix, or can't face an evening without a glass of wine, WED you are definitely not alone. But have you ever thought WED about the economics that has made your addiction possible? WED Who does it profit? And would you want to make some canny WED investments that take advantage of our human weaknesses? WED In this series, Simon Evans looks at the economics, history WED and health issues behind these oh-so-addictive commodities. WED This week it's tobacco. It's been called the single biggest WED avoidable cause of death in the world today yet it has WED remained an investment goldmine, with a single pound WED invested in tobacco stocks in 1900 now being worth over 6 WED million pounds. WED Simon speaks to Robert West, Professor of Health Psychology WED and Director of Tobacco Studios at University College London WED about current global trends in smoking.

Sir FRI Walter Scott invented the modern novel, began Scotland's FRI tourist industry and was the first celebrity author - a FRI heady mix of JK Rowling and Dan Brown long before the age of FRI mass media hype. Lauded by contemporary critics as well as FRI his massive readership in the 19th century, he's hardly read FRI - and even more rarely enjoyed - today. FRI Stuart Kelly considers the backlash which hit Scott's work FRI after the prolific author's death. Although his critical FRI reputation would never recover, the images of Scotland which FRI Walter Scott created - the romantic landscapes populated by FRI isolated, kilted natives - haunt Scotland to this day. FRI Stuart Kelly was born and brought up in the Scottish FRI Borders. He studied English at Oxford and is the Literary FRI Editor of Scotland on Sunday.

FRI As English continues to grow and spread, the influences of FRI the places around the world where it has been adopted are FRI being reimported. As Stephen puts it, "we exported brown FRI Windsor soup and re-imported mulligatawny. We exported clogs FRI - back came tap dancing". The McDonald's slogan "I'm Loving FRI it" is an example. So is the youth-speak Jafaican. FRI This continual process means we can predict some changes in FRI the way we use language. Dr David Crystal, a world FRI authority, thinks the sound "th" might disappear. The very FRI rhythms of our speech might change, and our vocabulary FRI certainly will. FRI The other huge influence on the way English will change FRI relates to technology. The programme features computer FRI programmes that "read" text. They do this not just to show FRI off. The London School of Economics employs a computer FRI programme to read text in the service of research. So FRI computers will, in some sense, join the swelling billions FRI who use English. FRI But will they - can they - ever "understand" English well FRI enough for them to read and understand a novel? Professor FRI Margaret Boden, a leader in the field is doubtful. She and FRI Microsoft search engineer Ron Kaplan discuss a test for FRI computers, in the shape of this sentence: "Is the duck ready FRI to eat?" FRI Nobody knows exactly how English will change, or whether we FRI might, as time travellers, recognise it 200 years hence. But FRI speculating about it is endless fun.
