Drama On 3 – Gone

Sunday 14 March
8.00-9.30pm BBC RADIO 3

A young woman has gone missing. No-one knows what has happened to her. She is described by an unconnected group of people whose lives she touched in some way on the last day anyone saw her. One or two of them knew her, some met her briefly and some just happened to see her.

The different versions of events slowly build to a disjointed version of who the woman was and what may have happened to her as the fragments of truth are drawn together.

Written and directed by Debbie Tucker Green, Gone is both a fascinating study of the impossibility of discovering one objective version of reality, and a series of beautifully detailed vignettes of the intimate lives of a group of individuals, revealing their troubling secrets, their cruelties and their joys and building a vivid snapshot of how people live today.

The cast includes Sheri-An Davis, Michelle Asante, Emil Marwa, Manjinder Virk, Nadine Marshall, Alex Lanipekun, Naana Agyei-Ampadu, Richie Campbell, Seroca Davis, Alan Williams, Dystin Johnson, Jeffrey Kissoon, Justin Pierre, Nicola Walker, Justin Salinger and Danny Lee Wynter.

His is a huge and complex task – creating exact replicas in every detail. As he prepares to research the work, Adam makes an extraordinary discovery.

Caravaggio revolutionized the world of art as the Vatican's superstar. The first programme examines the life and work of an itinerant murderer turned religious artist as Roger begins a journey to the heart of art and politics in Rome. Listeners are introduced to this fascinating project to recreate Caravaggio's works and learn exactly what made him an outstanding painter.

Clarissa lead Richard Armitage appears (above) in BBC period drama North And South

Samuel Richardson's Clarissa is a heartbreaking and compulsive piece of epistolary storytelling and one of the world's greatest novels. Published in 1747, it was the precursor to and inspiration for many of the great European novels which followed in its wake.

The young and beautiful Clarissa is courted by the rake Lovelace, who tricks her into his power, carries her off to London, and rapes her. Clarissa then falls into decline. Lovelace becomes involved in an avenging duel with Clarissa's cousin, and Clarissa's family and friends must live with the guilt and shame of their own neglect and betrayal of her.

This new, four-part dramatisation by Hattie Naylor stars Richard Armitage (BBC One's Spooks) as Robert Lovelace and Zoe Waites (Roxanne, The Bristol Old Vic) as Clarissa Harlowe. The company includes: Alison Steadman; Deborah Findlay; Miriam Margolyes; Oliver Milburn; John Rowe; Julian Rhind-Tutt; Adrian Scarborough; Stephen Critchlow; Cathy Sara; Sophie Thompson; Ellie Beaven; Lisa Hammond; and Linda Broughton.

In this first part, beautiful young heiress Clarissa Harlowe is dangerously attracted by the wiles of the notorious libertine Robert Lovelace. Threatened by an imminent marriage arranged with the odious suitor her family have found for her, Lovelace persuades Clarissa to flee with him.
