The BBC's programmes and services in the UK and around the world

This evening Richard Klein, Controller of BBC Four will be speaking at the Philosophy and Music festival, HowTheLightGetsIn as part of BBC Four's partnership with The Institute of Art and Ideas. The festival is taking place at Hay-on-Wye and runs from the 26th May to the 6th June. It takes place alongside the book festival but has its own separate programme of talks, debates, music and much more.
Richard will be presenting Justice - A citizen's Guide to the 21st Century as well as taking part in a Q&A straight afterwards. This is only one part of BBC Four's involvement, which also covers John Mullan, talking about Great Thinkers: in their own Words, James Rogan talking about the Storyville documentary about Amnesty International and Jonty Claypole discussing how philosophers have used television to communicate ideas.

Audiences should see a benefit through delivering greater value and enriching the audience experience, providing ways to participate and interact and enhancing learning opportunities.
Some of the other partnerships that demonstrate these principles are:
