Does it really hold SAT the Prime Minister to account? In this programme, historian SAT Dominic Sandbrook traces its development to show how it has SAT reflected the changing political culture. SAT Throughout its short history, there have been constant calls SAT for reform. Just last year The Speaker John Bercow described SAT PMQs as 'scrutiny by screech' but has it always been like SAT this? SAT Harold Wilson's former private secretary reveals how the SAT personal animosity between Heath and Wilson poisoned the SAT atmosphere of PMQs.

SAT But Richard's got bigger things to worry about. He's SAT secretly planning the perfect proposal, and even though when SAT it comes to the big moment things don't go exactly as SAT planned, soon Richard and Siobhan find themselves preparing SAT for the wedding of their dreams. But if planning the perfect SAT proposal was fraught with complications, it's nothing SAT compared to planning the perfect wedding.

Concluded by Roger May. TUE TUE 18:30 John Wyndham: No Place Like Earth b00wqb56 (Listen) TUE 'The Day of the Triffids' is one of the great post war TUE British novels. It was the first big success for its author TUE John Wyndham - and it came late. He was in his 40s when it TUE was published. He went on to write a series of successful TUE books including The Kraken Wakes, The Chrysalids and The TUE Midwich Cuckoos. TUE His novels are set in middle class British suburbia - and TUE have been accused of being 'cosy catastrophes', but at their TUE heart is a streak of darkness. Wyndham was interested in how TUE ordinary people would cope when extraordinary, and TUE terrifying things happened to them. TUE His greatest successes came in the 1950s and his TUE preoccupations were very much post war and cold war; nuclear TUE annihilation, social breakdown and anxieties over communism. TUE He was also prescient; he touches on climate change, TUE genetically modified crops and species extinction. He was TUE fascinated by evolution; would human beings one day be TUE supplanted by something superior? He was also intriguing TUE when it came to his heroines - they were resourceful, TUE sensible and clever. An occasional tear might be shed, but TUE the Wyndham girl was soon decapitating triffids or felling TUE religious fanatics. TUE In 'No Place Like Earth' Dan Rebellato examines the TUE importance and influence of John Wyndham on the history of TUE British and American science fiction. The programme is TUE produced in Manchester by Nicola Swords.

WED Published in 1909, Sailors' Knots is an anthology of comic WED stories set around London and the Thames Estuary at the turn WED of the last century. The 'knots' are the various mix-ups WED that occur between sailors on shore leave and the local WED residents. The tales are great fun, full of entertaining WED characters (with names like Silas Winch, Sam Small and WED Ginger Dick) and often deal with marital spats, WED misunderstandings, and rascals getting their just rewards. WED Mark Williams reads the last in the series when, in a case WED of mistaken identity, a young sailor becomes part of a WED family he's never met before. WED W.W. Jacobs is best know for his horror story, The Monkey's WED Paw (1902), but the majority of his writing is comic. He was WED born in Wapping in 1863, where his father was wharf manager WED at the South Devon Wharf at Lower East Smithfield, and his WED early observation of merchant ships and the behaviour of WED their crews informed his many humorous tales. WED Mark Williams is well-known as one of the stars of BBC TV's WED The Fast Show ("Suits you, sir..!!") and for the role of Ron WED Weasley's father in the Harry Potter films.

THU THU 06:30 The Walpole Chronicle b010t6gw (Listen) THU The novelist Hugh Walpole was one of the most successful THU writers of his generation; a consummate story teller. In the THU 1920s and 30s he was a publisher's dream ticket. THU Each new novel dramatically outsold the one before. On his THU lucrative literary tours of America he pulled in even bigger THU audiences than Charles Dickens who had done the circuit 80 THU years before. He was a friend of and admired by Virginia THU Woolf, Arnold Bennett, John Buchan, Henry James, Clemence THU Dane, and T.S. Eliot. He wrote more than 50 books including THU 36 novels. He was the master of the epic family saga and THU also an accomplished writer of psychological thrillers and THU supernatural tales. Carl Jung thought Walpole was a better THU psychologist than many of his professional colleagues. THU Today Walpole is largely forgotten. It was said that "the THU works of Hugh Walpole will go on forever" but today only a THU couple of his books are still in print. But what caused this THU catastrophic decline in Walpole's reputation? THU For this re-appraisal of Walpole and his work Eric Robson THU travels to the Borrowdale Valley in the Lake District where THU Hugh settled for the last twenty years of his life. We go in THU search of this larger than life character who denied the THU existence of income tax, spent several fortunes on THU collections of books and art works and sought the love of THU London's literary set only to be ridiculed and parodied THU whilst his back was turned. Why has the verdict of posterity THU apparently been so harsh? THU Producer: Barney Rowntree THU A Somethin Else production for BBC Radio 4.

THU To help his finances, Sandy, still in the family home, took THU in a young couple as lodgers. But then the man left - THU leaving the attractive Dolores behind. And she, Sandy's THU children are quite sure, is a gold-digger. Sandy's opinion THU that it would be inhuman to move Henry somewhere unfamiliar THU is wearing a bit thin - as is the old dog himself. Keeping THU the dog alive and keeping the lodger happy are one thing; THU what really concerns Sandy deeply is providing a guiding THU hand to his whole family, advising here, prompting there, THU responding to any emergency callout... If he kept himself to THU himself, of course, things would be a lot simpler and THU smoother. But a lot duller too...

FRI The Death Watch Beetle is a wood-boring beetle.

Don't tell me this attic has ever seen such a FRI specimen before. This lovely compact dark brown capsule of FRI hard cuticle covered with yellowish scale-like hair and just FRI under a centimetre long - it could all be yours! Secondly, FRI to make as much noise as he can and finally to live long FRI enough to see the roof cave in. FRI The Queen Wasp is very, very bossy, and very, very stressed. FRI She carries the entire responsibility for the wasp colony FRI and its thousands of inhabitants, all of whom are her own FRI progeny. There is an enormous amount of work to be done. FRI "They call themselves workers, these girls, but quite FRI frankly, none of them knows what real work actually is." It FRI is lonely at the top too," I did consider leaving all this, FRI at one point. None of them knows this; they'd be heartbroken FRI to think I might have left them" and she is just beginning FRI to lose her grip. "Bring me my list" she constantly yells. FRI Life doesn't get much more stressful than this.
