MICHAEL PALIN'S RADIO ADVENTURES (320kbs-m4a/412mb/2hrs59mins)
BBC Radio 4 Extra broadcast: 19th October 2019

In a completely different broadcast from London's Radio Theatre John McCarthy meets with Michael Palin to celebrate the actor-adventurer's remarkable life and career as heard on BBC radio.

Michael Palin has been a Python, a world traveller, author, actor and screenwriter, and often described as "Britain's Nicest Man". However one area which is often overlooked from his long and impressive career are his fascinating radio contributions.

In this programme we hear extracts from his mighty canon of work including his famous diaries, interviews about his comedy and travel work, documentaries about mental illness and dramas. We also hear rare footage of the time he tried his hand as a BBC disc jockey, his charity work and a hilarious pythonesque local radio broadcast from a taxi rank.

Recorded in front an enthusiastic audience the celebration features contributions from comedians Barry Cryer and John Finnermore, broadcasters Paul Gambaccini and John Waite and throughout we discover Palin's love for radio as we hear a treasure trove of archives on an eclectic mix of subjects and plenty memories of Monty Python.

Archive On 4: The Empire Strikes Back

ARCHIVE ON 4: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK (320kbs-m4a/130mb/57mins)
BBC Radio 4 broadcast: 16th May 2020

40 years ago George Lucas risked all on the creation of the first Star Wars sequel, The Empire Strikes Back. Or rather Episode V in what is now the middle trilogy of the Star Wars saga. On this the fate of the Star Wars universe rested. Having your first screen writer die on you whilst the ink had barely dried on the first draft was an inauspicious start. Then came fire and ice. Elstree studios endured conflagration as Stanley Kubrick's The Shining went up in smoke. The first weeks of filming in Norway (a.k.a. Hoth) were a white out and the film went over schedule & over budget,. But in May 1980 the world was treated to a space opera classic that for many remains the defining film of the Star Wars universe.

Mark Burman returns to a snowbound Finse, Norway to hear from some of the veteran crew, draws on his own archive of key personnel from director Irvin Kershner to the hands and face behind Yoda. Stuart Freeborn. Listen to this you must.

Featuring the voices of Dave Barclay,Christian Berrum, Jim Bloom, Leigh Brackett, Stuart Freeborn,Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Nilo Rodis Jamero,, Gary Kurtz, George Lucas ,Peter MacDonald, Frank Oz, Ken Ralston, Peter Suschitzsky, Phil Tippett, Robert Watts & John Williams.

Desert Island Discs: Charles Hazlewood

DESERT ISLAND DISCS: CHARLES HAZLEWOOD (320kbs-m4a/87mb/37mins)
BBC Radio 4 broadcast: 24th May 2020

Charles Hazlewood is a conductor and the founder of Paraorchestra, the world's first professional ensemble of disabled musicians.

Once described as the Heston Blumenthal of orchestral music, Charles has spent his career challenging Britain’s musical palate, exploding boundaries and expanding our ideas about what an orchestra can be - and do.

His repertoire encompasses Beethoven, Bruckner and Barry White, and his critically-acclaimed projects include more than 100 world premieres and the first orchestral headline performance at Glastonbury. Paraorchestra, the ensemble he established in 2011, reached a global audience at the closing ceremony of the 2012 London Paralympics. He also co-founded an opera company in South Africa, and its production of Carmen, with a mainly black cast, won international acclaim.

He studied music at Keble College, Oxford and was the Organ Scholar there. He won the EBU conductor's competition in 1995 and has had an international career as a conductor.

Desert Island Discs Revisited: Artists - Damien Hirst

DESERT ISLAND DISCS REVISITED: ARTISTS - DAMIEN HIRST (320kbs-m4a/99mb/43mins)
BBC Radio 4 Extra broadcast: 26th April 2020

From The Clash to Joni Mitchell. Artist Damian Hirst shares his castaway choices with Kirsty Young. From 2013.

Life, death, desire, fear, beauty, horror - his creative preoccupations are standard fair; his art - using sharks, maggots, butterflies, glass, formaldehyde and even sometimes paint - is not. His best known works have become iconic symbols of contemporary culture and his exhibitions and auctions attract attention the way a carcass attracts flies.

Growing up in Leeds his mother was something of an early artistic influence - she had dots painted on the front door and whenever Damien said he'd finished a drawing, she'd lay another sheet of paper down and tell her son "carry on."

He once said, "People don't like contemporary art but all art starts life as contemporary. I'm sure there were people in caves going 'I like your cave but I hate that crap you've got on the wall'."

SOUND OF CINEMA - 276. THE ATOM (320kbs-m4a/134mb/58mins)

Matthew features music for films which take their inspiration from mankind’s inconsistent relationship with the atom and nuclear energy.

He also takes this opportunity to look at writing music for documentaries with the new film’s composer Paul Honey.

The programme features music from the films ‘Radioactive’; ‘X - The Unknown’; ‘Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox’; ‘Superman IV - The Quest For Peace’; ‘Edge Of Darkness’; ‘Goldfinger’; ‘Radium Girls’; ‘ The China Syndrome’; ‘Silkwood’; ‘Grand Central’; ‘Chernobyl’ and ‘The Atom - A Love Affair’.

BBC Radio 3 broadcast: 22nd May 2020

Jennifer Lucy Allan presents a rare mix from the great Lee Ranaldo, who guides listeners through a lovingly compiled 30-minute collage of his favourite music and sounds. Expect free jazz, cut-up poetry, and wild vocal improvisations.

Following a stint in the electric guitar orchestra of Glenn Branca, Lee Ranaldo formed the experimental rock group Sonic Youth in 1981, alongside Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon. Thirty years later the founding trio decided to finally disband, having created multiple classic albums and influenced generations of musicians, composers, and creatives.

Since then, Lee Ranaldo has continued to release solo records, to produce for others, and to collaborate with a diverse bunch of interesting musicians. He also has an acclaimed visual art, sound art, and poetry practice. First and foremost though, Ranaldo will always be considered as one of the best guitarists of all time.

Produced by Alannah Chance.
