The Archbishop Interviews - 6. Stephen King

THE ARCHBISHOP INTERVIEWS - 6. STEPHEN KING (320kbs-m4a/64mb/28mins)

BBC Radio 4 broadcast: 27th March 2022

In this series, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has deep conversations with people who have made a significant contribution to public life about what they believe. How have the navigated their inner life alongside their public profile? What has been their moral 'touchstone' through the good times and the bad? How do they engage with faith and spirituality?

This week's guest is the author Stephen King. He's written more than 60 novels, hundreds of short stories, and has sold hundreds of millions of books worldwide. Described as the "King of Horror", he became a household name with novels such as Carrie, The Shining, and Misery. Those and countless others have been adapted for the big screen, including The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, providing some of the most captivating moments in cinema history.

Producer: Dan Tierney for BBC Audio North.

It's another case for private eye Philip Marlowe.

The Lost Art Of The TV Theme

THE LOST ART OF THE TV THEME (320kbs-m4a/64mb/28mins)

BBC Radio 4 Extra broadcast: 12th May 2022

Few people who grew up in the 1960s could not now hum you the tunes from:

The Persuaders, University Challenge, Panorama, Crossroads, Dave Allen At Large, The Avengers, The Onedin Line, Blue Peter, Department S, Top of the Form, Tomorrow's World, Grandstand, Dad's Army, The Saint, Sportsnight – the list goes on and on.

The 1970s gave us:

Fawlty Towers, Colditz, Mr & Mrs, The Two Ronnies, The Liver Birds, Are You Being Served, The Goodies, The Wombles, Blake's Seven, Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em – and Whatever Happened To The Likely Lads, whose theme tune perfectly captured the affectionate nostalgia of the comedy.

The melodies became so iconic that those shows which survived into the 21st century – Coronation Street, Mastermind, Match of the Day – have never ditched the theme music familiar to generations of viewers. And we haven't even mentioned Doctor Who, whose pulsing theme generated by the BBC Radiophonic Workshop in 1963 has since regenerated itself many times over, and inspired enough new music to provide a programme for an entire Prom.

Rich Morton acknowledges that his age defines his taste in themes, as in so many other things. As a composer of very plausible tunes for TV shows and films which never existed, he favours the thrilling, brassy action themes of the 1960s or the jaunty hipster tunes of the 1970s.

Yet his suspicion is that programme makers in the 1980s – perhaps as a result of squeezed budgets - stopped commissioning specially-written music and turned instead to cheaper alternatives, such as adapting instrumental extracts from pre-existing pop records.

Rich argues that, while there are still memorable themes around, far too many shows now have bland or generic music which would defy most people's attempts to hum it, let alone remember it in 50 years' time.

In an age when many viewers access TV shows from Netflix, iPlayer or YouTube, the need for an instantly-recognisable theme as a clarion call to gather round and watch no longer applies.

Rich sets out to ask what it was that made those old themes so memorable, but is it now a Mission Impossible? Have TV themes diminished in importance as an art form?

Featuring some of the great practitioners of classic TV themes - Tony Hatch and Alan Hawkshaw, and one of the most successful TV composers of today, Debbie Wiseman.

Producer: Paul Bajoria

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in May 2015.

Rich's Top 20 TV Themes

As you can see, my selection is firmly rooted in the Golden Age of ITC. These are some of my personal favourites, all written and recorded in the 60s and 70s - but as a musician I'm aware that the work of some great composers is glaringly absent! For instance, Henry Mancini's brilliant compositions for Peter Gunn and Mr Lucky (American TV shows made before my time) both spring to mind as examples of TV theme writing at its very best.

1. The Persuaders
2. The Avengers
3. Hawaii Five-O
4. The Sweeney
5. Mission: Impossible
6. The Champions
7. Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads?
8. Department S
9. The Saint
10. Dave Allen At Large
11. The Professionals
12. Thunderbirds
13. The Prisoner
14. The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
15. Man In A Suitcase
16. Starsky & Hutch
17. The Big Match
18. The Strange Report
19. The Protectors
20. U.F.O.

Desert Island Discs: David Harewood

DESERT ISLAND DISCS: DAVID HAREWOOD (320kbs-m4a/77mb/34mins)

BBC Radio 4 broadcast: 29th May 2022

David Harewood is a British actor and presenter who found global fame playing the CIA director David Estes in the acclaimed TV drama series Homeland. He was the first black actor to play Othello at the National theatre in 1997 and took the role of Martin Luther King in the Olivier award-winning play The Mountaintop in 2009.

David was born in Birmingham in 1965. After one of his teachers suggested that he should try his luck at acting, he won a place at RADA where he tackled a number of challenging roles including King Lear. After graduating, he performed in a range of television and theatre productions, but by the time he auditioned for Homeland he says he was down to his last £80. He joined the cast of Homeland in 2011 and the following year he was awarded an MBE for services to drama.

In 2019 he presented a BBC documentary called Psychosis and Me which told the story of the mental breakdown he experienced as a young man. The programme was nominated for a BAFTA award and was praised by critics for its honest exploration of a difficult subject and for helping to remove some of the stigma around mental health. He went on to present a range of documentaries which addressed subjects close to his heart including the health inequality exposed by the Covid-19 pandemic and the experience of slavery within the history of his own family.

David lives in London with his wife and their two daughters.

Great Lives - Niall Ferguson On JRR Tolkien


BBC Radio 4 broadcast: 7th December 2021

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born in Bloemfontein in 1892. Orphaned before he was a teenager, he fought at the Somme in World War One before going on to become one of the best-selling authors of all time. Bilbo, Gandalf, Gollum, Frodo, Sauron - these are just a few of the famous characters he created for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

Nominating Tolkien - an Oxford University professor - is the popular historian, Niall Ferguson. He aims to rescue Tolkien from the hippies, who, he says, claimed Tolkien as their own. "The fascinating thing to me about Tolkien is that his sensibility is so profoundly conservative - with a small 'c'. ...when you look at the man's politics, he was such a reactionary!" Presenter Matthew Parris, who doesn't believe in elves or dwarves, is not so sure that the fantasy author deserves to be rescued. With additional help and guidance from Malcolm Guite.

Niall Ferguson is senior fellow of the Hoover Institution and author of Empire: How Britain made the Modern World.

The producer for BBC Audio in Bristol is Ellie Richold.
