SAT Producer: Steve Doherty SAT A Boomerang production for BBC Radio 4. SAT SAT 06:00 Saturday Drama b01pf5d7 (Listen) SAT Lewis Carroll - Alice through the Looking Glass SAT By Lewis Carroll, dramatised by Stephen Wyatt It's SAT mid-winter, the snow is falling against the window, and SAT Alice is learning how to play chess but then, on a whim, she SAT goes to the mirror and pretends her black kitten is the Red SAT Queen and suddenly everything changes ... SAT With Jim Al-Khalili, Roger McGough, Jenni Murray, Jane SAT Garvey, Eric Robson, Pippa Greenwood, Peter Donaldson, SAT Kirsty Young, Andrew Marr, Evan Davies, Garry Richardson & SAT Melvyn Bragg. SAT This dramatisation brings out the intellectual spine of SAT Lewis Carroll's classic story - while losing none of the SAT fun. SAT When Alice crashes through the looking glass she enters a SAT world set out like a giant chess board and discovers SAT science, maths, poetry, riddles, and wordplay. It is SAT instantly entertaining and tantalizingly offers the listener SAT more than meets the ear. SAT In this fast-moving and surrealist world, Alice has to SAT decode the bizarre rules of the mirror-world. If Alice can SAT get to The Eighth Square she will be Queen. Lewis Carroll is SAT ever present. He sets out the chess game for Alice, teasing SAT the listener into having an overview of his story and SAT exploring the ideas within it. SAT On her chess journey Alice will meet the Red & White Queen, SAT Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledee and Tweedledum (who might be more SAT familiar than the listener can possibly imagine) and the Red SAT & White Knights. But there's a twist here - Alice will also SAT discover that Radio 4 can be found on the other side of the SAT glass. SAT Published for Christmas 1871 this story is the mirror image SAT of Alice In Wonderland: the characters are chess pieces SAT instead of cards. It is Winter rather than Summer and time SAT runs backwards. Tim Burton's film was 'inspired' by Lewis SAT Carroll's books but it wasn't Lewis Carroll's book. This is SAT a chance for the Radio 4 listeners to discover the real SAT thing and show them why this classic appeals to SAT philosophers, linguists and chess fans, prefaced Modernism, SAT has provoked a wealth of academic study, and in doing so SAT remind them of the bits they loved in childhood (and the SAT bits they've forgotten). SAT Mathematician Carroll, prefaced his book with a chess SAT problem. It is claimed the game is a part of a sequence of SAT numbers - that Alice's journey is code - that Carroll was SAT flirting with numerology and esotericism. It is intriguing SAT because Carroll loved number games and puzzles. He was SAT frighteningly clever. He regularly invented things. You SAT could say he was the Mark Zuckerberg of his time. SAT Credits SAT Alice: Lauren Mote SAT Lewis Carroll: Julian Rhind-Tutt SAT The Red Queen: Carole Boyd SAT The White Queen: Sally Phillips SAT Humpty Dumpty: Nicholas Parsons SAT Tweedledee: Alistair McGowan SAT Tweedledum: Alistair McGowan SAT The White Knight: John Rowe SAT The White King: Robert Blythe SAT Messenger: Ben Crowe SAT Guard: Patrick Brennan SAT Pudding: Stephanie Racine SAT Writer: Stephen Wyatt SAT SAT 07:30 Capturing America: Mark Lawson's History of Modern SAT American Literature b00rfhzx (Listen) SAT The Celebrity Tour SAT Mark Lawson tells the story of how American writing became SAT the literary superpower of the 20th century, telling the SAT nation's stories of money, power, sex, religion and war. SAT Among the millions of words written by modern American SAT authors, one of the most important is 'I'. The SAT autobiographical, first-person story - featuring authors in SAT light disguise or even under their own names - has become an SAT increasingly significant literary genre. SAT Philip Roth and John Updike wrote long sequences of stories SAT about fictional famous American authors - Nathan Zuckerman SAT and Henry Bech - who can be read as versions of their own SAT histories. Later, Roth went further, with several books SAT including characters with his own name, just as Norman SAT Mailer would refer to himself in non-fiction books as SAT 'Mailer'. This is one of the devices of the 'New SAT Journalism', developed by Tom Wolfe and Hunter S Thompson, SAT which put the reporter at the heart of the story. SAT Conversely, some authors, including JD Salinger and Thomas SAT Pynchon, were so appalled by the prospect of the publicity SAT circuit that they preferred to vanish completely. SAT Beginning on 'The Philip Roth Tour' of Newark, New Jersey, SAT in which Liz Del Tufo takes tourists to sites featured in SAT the author's work, Mark Lawson reflects on the way in which SAT a celebrity culture has made writers play with their public SAT personalities, talking to Philip Roth, Tom Wolfe, Bret SAT Easton Ellis, Jay McInerney, Dave Eggers and Professor Diane SAT Roberts. SAT Credits SAT Producer: Robyn Read SAT SAT 08:00 Archive on 4 b06vg1ph (Listen) SAT Utopias SAT 2016 sees the 500th anniversary of a book that generated an SAT idea that has been hotly contested throughout the hundreds SAT of years since its release; that book was 'Utopia' and its SAT author was Thomas More. SAT More had been on a trade mission to Antwerp, and spent much SAT of his time talking to fellow humanist scholars like Erasmus SAT about the notion of an ideal society and what it might look SAT like. Out of those conversations came the book, a slippery SAT tale that blurs fact and fiction and which has left readers SAT ever since trying to fathom whether More was indeed SAT presenting his island of Utopia, where equality is paramount SAT and greed attacked, as a model society or as a salutary SAT tale. SAT Half a millennium on, Michael Symmons Roberts heads to SAT Antwerp himself to find out more about the actual book, that SAT so many make reference without ever having opened its pages. SAT He finds out that partly for safety's sake (the text being SAT one on level a critique of contemporary England) it was SAT published abroad and in Latin; he also hears about its great SAT popularity, how it led many to try and set up their own SAT perfect communities, and examines the irony that More would SAT rather have seen this book about an equal society burned SAT rather than seeing it translated into the vernacular and SAT therefore made available to all. SAT Along the way Michael also eavesdrops on figures from the SAT BBC archives describing what their personal Utopias might SAT look like - including Tony Benn, Jeanette Winterson, Aldous SAT Huxley, Nawal El Saadawi and Ian Banks. SAT SAT 09:00 Doctor Who b0076jh7 (Listen) SAT Who Made Who SAT Five decades doesn't mean much to a time traveller, but SAT after fifty years, the Doctor is still a mystery. SAT Radio 4 Extra doesn't have all the answers, but we can shed SAT a little light. Not just a TV phenomenon, Doctor Who has SAT also taken us into strange new sonic realms and the written SAT word. Mark Gatiss examines the Target novels, which offered SAT a glimpse into those early stories before video. We hear SAT from surviving cast and crew of the original pilot episode, SAT the people who gave the show its unique sound in Dance of SAT the Daleks, and finally we catch up with Susan - the SAT Doctor's Granddaughter, last seen on 22nd-century Earth. SAT In between, John Lloyd, AL Kennedy and others who recall SAT those monochrome early years examine what makes them so SAT special. Hosting it is Tracy-Ann Oberman, not only a star of SAT Friday Night Dinner and Eastenders but a Doctor Who SAT villainess in her own right. SAT Tracy-Ann Oberman is an actor and writer with an extensive SAT variety of diverse credits; Big Train, Toast of London and SAT Monroe to name but three. For Doctor Who fans she will be SAT known as Yvonne Hartman - the woman who saw off Rose and set SAT up Torchwood. SAT Programmes included in this three hour special SAT On the Outside it Looked Like An Old Fashioned Police Box SAT Mark Gatiss, Doctor Who writer and fanatic, explores the SAT hugely popular Doctor Who novelisations of the 1970s and SAT 80s, published by Target books. Featuring some of the best SAT excerpts from the books and interviews with publishers, SAT house writers, illustrators and the actors whose adventures SAT the books tirelessly depicted. SAT SAT SAT The Reunion – Doctor Who SAT Sue MacGregor reunites five people who created and starred SAT in the first series of a television landmark, Doctor Who. SAT Fifty years later, those who crammed nervously into the SAT BBC's Lime Grove Studios in 1963 recount the triumphs and SAT disasters that ushered in the longest running SAT science-fiction series in the world. Joining Sue MacGregor SAT is Waris Hussein, the director of the episode, Carole Ann SAT Ford who played the Doctor's granddaughter and companion SAT Susan, William Russell who played the Doctor's right hand SAT man Ian Chesterton, actor Jeremy Young who was the first SAT Doctor Who enemy Caveman Kal, and television presenter Peter SAT Purves who travelled with William Hartnell in the mid 60's SAT as companion Steven Taylor. SAT SAT Dance of the Daleks SAT How do you make a sink-plunger seem scary? Matthew Sweet, SAT who spent the Saturday tea-times of his youth peering at the SAT television from behind the sofa, time-travels through Doctor SAT Who's 47-year history to investigate the weird and wonderful SAT soundworld of its incidental music. He talks with some of SAT the composers who have contributed, in very different SAT musical styles, to the enduring success of the programme SAT over the decades. SAT SAT Whatever Happened to Susan Foreman? SAT A mockumentary starring Jane Asher and Andrew Sachs. It SAT examines the life of a Susan Foreman, the Doctor’s SAT granddaughter through the realistic lens of a researcher SAT conducting an interview with a subject. Last seen in SAT decimated London after a Dalek invasion, where is the Time SAT Lord's relative now? SAT SAT 12:00 Charles Parker Prize b07d2vfx (Listen) SAT 2016 SAT Charles Parker was a talented radio producer who worked with SAT Ewan MacColl and Peggy Seeger over 50 years ago to create SAT the famous series of 'radio ballads'. SAT Each year a team of radio professions meet to decide the SAT winners of an award dedicated to his memory. For the past 12 SAT years the Charles Parker Award has been presented to the SAT best feature made by students studying radio at universities SAT and colleges throughout the UK. In this programme Charles's SAT daughter Sara Parker, herself an award-winning radio SAT producer, reviews this year's competition, talks to the SAT judges, plays extracts from some of the entries, meets the SAT prize-winners and plays their Bronze, Silver and Gold SAT Award-winning features.

SAT Aged 58 when interviewed, Allen talks of his life as a SAT pioneering paperback publisher and his discovery of DH SAT Lawrence. SAT Sir Allen Lane was born in 1902 and died in 1970. SAT Launched in 1952 on the BBC Home Service, Frankly Speaking SAT was a novel, ground breaking series. Unrehearsed and SAT unscripted, the traditional interviewee/interviewer pairing SAT was initially jettisoned for three interviewers firing SAT direct questions. Early critics described it as 'unkempt', SAT 'an inquisition' and described the guest as prey being SAT cornered, quarry being pursued - with calls to axe the SAT unscripted interview. But the format won out and eventually SAT won over its detractors. SAT Only 40 or so of the original 100 programmes survive. SAT First broadcast on the BBC Home Service in 1961.

As the SAT conversation unfolds, Tom takes time out from the phone call SAT to explain the situation, his parent's reactions and relate SAT various anecdotes from the past which illustrate his SAT family's views. And sometimes he just needs to sound-off SAT about the maddening world around him and bemoan everyday SAT annoyances. SAT During all this Hang Ups explores class, living away from SAT 'home', trans-generational phenomena, what we inherit from SAT our families and how the past repeats in the present. All in SAT a 30 minute phone call. SAT 'Tom Wrigglesworth's Hang-ups' gets underneath the skin of SAT Tom and the Wrigglesworth family, so sit back and enjoy a SAT bit of totally legal phone hacking.

SUN Poet Michael Symmons Roberts dramatisation brings More's SUN strange and enchanting island to life, told through the SUN memoirs of Raphael Hythloday. SUN More goes on a diplomatic trip to Antwerp, to sort out a SUN dispute in the commercial wool trade between Britain and the SUN Netherlands. While he is there he meets an old man who is SUN clearly widely travelled. SUN More complains about the petty politics of the trade SUN dispute, and the old stranger bemoans the state of SUN contemporary society. There is a better way, he says, and I SUN have seen it. The stranger introduces himself as the SUN explorer and adventurer Raphael Hythloday, who at the height SUN of his career of was sent out from Antwerp to explore an SUN unmapped and remote part of the ocean. After months of SUN sailing, he chanced upon an island society unlike any he had SUN seen before. The island was called 'Utopia'. SUN Utopia fleshes out the story of Raphael's visit to the SUN island, giving us vivid descriptions of the place and its SUN society, its laws and social patterns and customs. SUN All the bearings for this new drama are be taken from the SUN rules and descriptions of the island in More's book, and the SUN clues he gives about Raphael's visit.

MON Nearly 200,000 non-French Allied troops continued to see MON action in France, some only arriving after Dunkirk. MON How The Rest Got Home tells some of their stories: those who MON survived the sinking of the Lancastria (Britain's worst-ever MON maritime disaster); those who founded the escape routes to MON the south coast of France; those who only reached home after MON five tortured years in German captivity, following MON humiliating capture at St Valery-en-Caux. There were SO many MON different ways back. MON The programme hears from a string of veterans in their late MON 80s and 90s. There's Henry Harding, whose leap off the MON Lancastria saved his life - he still has the watch he was MON wearing at the time, its hands frozen. Scotsmen Bill MON Crighton and Andrew Cheyne recall the sheer terror of MON Rommel's bombardment at St Valery, and the emotion of their MON eventual return to Aberdeen after five years' hard labour as MON German prisoners. MON On archive tape, Helen Long remembers the cloak and dagger MON business of hiding and protecting post-Dunkirk escapees in MON the brothels of Marseilles.

TUE TUE 06:30 Who Was Joyce Hatto? b00tt6f6 (Listen) TUE In June 2006, the death was announced of the pianist Joyce TUE Hatto. She was heralded as a great lost genius of classical TUE music- a reclusive woman who almost never performed in TUE public, but who in later life had created sublime recordings TUE in private. A few months later it emerged that those TUE recordings were fake- lifted from other performers and TUE tweaked in the studio - which leaves a question hanging. TUE In this programme, the biographer Anne Sebba asks 'Who was TUE Joyce Hatto?' TUE 'In the final few years of her life, she released a huge TUE range of CD recordings which swamped the market and were TUE praised to the hilt by a select band of reviewers,' says TUE Anne, 'I remember thinking, Where had this amazing talent TUE been all these years'? TUE Then, after a pile of glowing obituaries, which told of her TUE four decade battle with cancer, these recordings of the TUE pianist Joyce Hatto were branded as fake - copies of TUE commercial recordings made by other artists, - not by Joyce TUE at all. TUE In this programme, her husband, William Barrington Coupe, TUE the sound engineer for her recordings, said that he alone TUE was to blame for the deception- acting purely out of love, TUE and replacing passages of his wife's playing with other TUE artists. TUE But behind the final deception, there is an intriguing story TUE of an incredibly talented pianist marred by ill-health. TUE The conductor George Hurst talks about working with Joyce in TUE the early 1960s. The novelist Rose Tremain recalls Joyce as TUE an inspirational piano teacher. The critic Lewis Foreman TUE remembers an extraordinary performance at Guildford. TUE Producer: David Prest TUE A Whistledown Production for BBC Radio 4.

WED WED 06:30 Banishing Eve b00rd4f1 (Listen) WED Episode 1 WED Historian of the ancient world Bettany Hughes uses the WED latest scholarship to take us back to the 2nd century AD, as WED pagan Europe began to embrace Christianity. What emerged out WED of this crucible of religious change marked the beginning of WED the end for women as religious leaders for a millennium and WED half. Common wisdom would have it that women went from WED goddesses to flower arrangers in just over a century. But WED why - and was it that straightforward? WED Bettany finds that the history of women in the early church WED is written more in the fragments of stone left behind than WED in the scriptures. She visits Rome and traces the activities WED of women in the early church as they fought hand in hand WED with men to see their faith survive. Things got more WED difficult after Christianity became the recognised religion WED of the Roman Empire and beyond. But this is not just a tale WED of capitulation and annihilation; women fought doggedly for WED their positions. From Nicea to Northumbria, Bettany follows WED the decline - but not quite fall - of women in the early WED church.

FRI Radio revival of BBC TV's famous copper starring David FRI Calder as PC George Dixon, David Tennant as Andy Crawford FRI and Charlene Brooks as Mary Dixon, Carl Prekopp as Doug FRI Beale and Hayley Docherty as Diana Johnson. FRI Written by Ted Willis. Dramatised from his TV screenplay by FRI Sue Rodwell. FRI Dixon of Dock Green's roots go back to 1950 film drama 'The FRI Blue Lamp' which ended with Dixon being shot dead. However, FRI Warner's role was resurrected for the BBC TV series running FRI from 1955 to 1976. FRI Produced in Bristol by Viv Beeby and Jeremy Howell. FRI First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 2005. FRI FRI 06:30 The Ambassador's Reception b00rv5dc (Listen) FRI "Being thrown out of the US embassy in Ankara with Arthur FRI Miller - a voluntary exile - was one of the proudest moments FRI of my life." FRI In March 1985 Harold Pinter and American playwright Arthur FRI Miller took a trip to Turkey that culminated in their being FRI thrown out of the American Ambassador's dinner party held in FRI Arthur Miller's honour. They were not in Turkey for a play FRI or a literary event but to draw attention to the ruthless FRI limits being set on freedom of expression in Turkey at that FRI time, and the many writers languishing in prison. FRI "Mr. Pinter, you don't seem to understand the realities of FRI the situation here. Don't forget, the Russians are just over FRI the border. You have to bear in mind the political reality, FRI the diplomatic reality, the military reality." FRI For BBC Radio 4 writer and journalist Maureen Freely FRI retraces their footsteps and takes us on a journey across FRI Istanbul into the homes and meeting places of the Turkish FRI literati who in the 1980s were oppressed, imprisoned and FRI tortured for their opinions. Until then the world had turned FRI a blind eye to their plight. Did Pinter and Miller's trip FRI draw attention to a regime that was cruelly persecuting its FRI people or were hopes raised only to be quashed again with FRI the realisation that military strategy was more important to FRI the world than human rights? FRI Evoking images of country full of promise yet stunted by FRI doubt and distrust Maureen hears from painters, writers, and FRI publishers - those who remember the trip vividly, those who FRI were locked up for speaking their mind, and the new FRI generation of authors. She finds out whether Turkey is a FRI better, safer and freer place to be a writer today than it FRI was in the spring of 1985 or whether having an opinion that FRI deviates from the official line remains a dangerous path to FRI tread.
