ALDEBURGH FESTIVAL 2010
Performance On 3

Monday 28 June
7.00-9.15pm BBC RADIO 3

This concert of choral gems comes from the Huelgas Ensemble – a vocal consort specialising in medieval and Renaissance repertoire.

This programme from the Aldeburgh Festival blends the sensual sonorities of Lassus and his Franco-Flemish contemporaries with a real rarity: one of only two existing works by a forgotten Englishman, Thomas Ashewell. Ashewell was active in the early 16th century: first at Lincoln, then at Durham Cathedral.

This is astonishing music, its chromatic harmonies and sophisticated invention both peculiarly English in its isolation, yet far in advance of his continental contemporaries.

The Essay – Couples Ep 1/5

New series
Monday 28 June to Friday 2 July
11.00-11.15pm BBC RADIO 3

Oscar-winning writer Frederic Raphael reads the first of five new essays exploring the theme of couples throughout history, literature, classical civilisation, culture and politics. He begins the series looking at the origin of human coupling and the earliest couples: in Greek mythology, the Bible and early civilisation.

Frederic explores the relation between the first human couples depicted by early mythology, Prometheus and his early humans, and Adam and Eve, as well as man's desire for ideal love.

Drawing on the early ideas of Plato and Aristophanes he explores different versions of why humans pair off two by two, and at the political impact of, for example, early Egyptian coupling, which included marriage between brother and sister.

The series goes on to look at other famous couples of politics, public life and literature.

A History Of The World – Lewis Chessmen

Monday 28 June to Friday 2 July
9.45-10.00am BBC RADIO 4

Director of the British Museum Neil MacGregor continues his history of the world as told through objects from the museum.

Today Neil explores the story of the Lewis chessmen, one of the most familiar objects at the museum: a board game, found in the Outer Hebrides but probably made in Norway.

They are carved out of ivory and many of the figures are hugely detailed and wonderfully expressive. They depict a world where Norse and Gaelic were powerfully linked; indeed, the island of Lewis, where the chessmen were discovered, was ruled by Norway until towards the end of the 13th century. Neil describes the medieval world of the chessmen and explains how the game evolved. Historian Miri Rubin considers the genesis of the pieces and novelist Martin Amis celebrates the metaphorical power of the game of chess.

Woman's Hour Drama – Amazing Grace Ep 1/5

New series
Monday 28 June to Friday 2 July
10.45-11.00am BBC RADIO 4

A refugee mother's fight to find and bring home her children, separated from her by Sudanese war, is told in Amazing Grace by Michelle Lipton, which was inspired by a true story.

When Grace's Sudanese village is attacked, she scoops up her two-year-old in her arms. Her nine-year-old is holding her hand and the 10-year-old twins are running behind. They flee, running for their lives.

Thankfully safety is within reach, and a truck full of displaced villagers lets her on board. She loads on her two daughters and turns to lift up the boys. But they aren't there – they're gone. And the truck must leave.

Grace must make any parent's most feared decision. A choice that is no choice – to save the children she has with her or abandon them to look for the two who are left behind.

This is the story of Grace, now living in the UK, and her battle to find and bring back her missing children.

Wunmi Mosaku plays Grace, Patricia Routledge plays Bonny, Greg Wise plays Leo, Beru Tessema plays both Jacob and Elijah, and Yusra Wasruma plays Kyla. Other parts are played by Bijan Daneshmand, Bea Comins, Darren Hart and Ali Rahman.

Afternoon Play – Black And White Riot

Monday 28 June
2.15-3.00pm BBC RADIO 4

Black And White Riot is set in 1980 in the St Pauls area of Bristol. It tells the story of Ross and her dad, Reagan, who is king of the hustlers at the Black and White Café.

It's 2 April 1980. Inside the Black and White Café in St Pauls Reagan is drinking whisky and playing dominoes with his friend Carlos.

Outside, Reagan's daughter, Ross, is keeping an eye on her dad's beloved car and playing tag and shoot-out with Levi, a Rastafarian, and "the biggest kid you can imagine". He's been "away" for a while and she's delighted to see him back, even though he's an adult and she's only 11. To Ross, the Black and White is a place where her dad is king, and she's a princess. There's always a party going on. But today is going to be different. Today her dad is going to lose his crown.

The Black and White Café in Bristol, notorious even in Jamaica as a place where people could buy illegal drink and drugs, is the setting for this new play by award-winning playwright Edson Burton. The St Pauls riots were the first in a series of infamous inner-city confrontations between police and predominantly black communities in Britain in the Eighties.

The cast includes Tyra Allen as Ross, Jude Akuwideke as Reagan, Ricky Fearon as Carlos, Alex Lanipekun as Levi, Endy McKay as Marla, Marcus Smith as Danny and Mark Meadows as a police officer. The narrator is Nadia Williams.

Walk On By

Monday 28 June
8.00-8.30pm BBC RADIO 4

Nick Ross explores the psychology of why some people intervene when another person is in trouble and others don't, and asks if we now live in a "walk on by" society.

To the alarm of his family, Nick doesn't walk on by. He tends to get stuck in, once actually making a citizen's arrest. But studies have shown that the British public in general are the least likely in Europe to intervene if they witness crime or anti-social behaviour.

The so-called "bystander effect" dictates that the larger the group of people who witness a violent attack, the less likely it is that someone will intervene.

The programme hears from psychologists who suspect that people often fail to intervene because they believe no one else will get involved. This assumption is fuelled by media coverage of cases in which people have been seriously injured or even killed while bystanders stand and watch.

Nick meets psychologist Mark Levine, whose extensive study of CCTV footage of street violence suggests that actually groups do much more to try to defuse aggressive behaviour than is generally realised.

Nick steps into a virtual reality cave to see how people's reaction to violence is being tested in frighteningly realistic scenarios, and meets the psychologist who is studying a "walk on by" syndrome on the internet.

Evolutionary biology suggests that natural, genetic instinct is to behave in an altruistic and supportive way if someone is being attacked.

Book At Bedtime – Neglected Classics:
The Rector's Daughter Ep 1/10

New series
Monday 28 June to Friday 2 July
10.45-11.00pm BBC RADIO 4

Actress Juliet Stevenson reads FM Mayor's The Rector's Daughter
Actress Juliet Stevenson reads FM Mayor's The Rector's Daughter

Juliet Stevenson reads FM Mayor's masterful story of unexpected love as part of BBC Radio 4's Neglected Classics as chosen by Open Book listeners.

The Rector's Daughter is a now-overlooked 1924 masterpiece – a modern novel of filial love, married love and confounding midlife desire. It tells the story of a plain, reliable parson's daughter whose life of duty and service is thrown into confusion by an unexpected and unsought love affair.

At the heart of the novel lie the fortunes of Mary Jocelyn, a dutiful and devoted daughter content to live out her destiny under the leaden East Anglian skies. She loves to find solace in a robin's song and in the rare moments of warmth from her aged and formidable father. But on losing the one soul who really loved and needed her, Mary finds herself unbearably lonely and, for the first time, open to new horizons.

FM Mayor captures the emotions stirring in Mary's heart and the pain of thwarted middle-aged desire. The Rector's Daughter is abridged by Sally Marmion.

Asian Network Report Special – Our Broken Hearts

Monday 28 June
6.30-7.00pm BBC ASIAN NETWORK

New statistics, released exclusively to the BBC's Asian Network Reports Special, reveal the true extent of the burden of heart disease on ethnic minorities in the UK.

According to new research from the British Heart Foundation and the University of Oxford, rates of heart disease are far higher in Asian men than in the wider population, yet they are twice as likely to miss out on life-saving care. In this Asian Network Reports Special, Sony Award-winning DJ Nihal, who lost his own father to a heart attack 10 years ago, finds out why so many British Asians are dying from heart disease. The documentary hears from numerous sufferers and from individuals who have survived heart attacks that "came out of the blue".

With British Asians more at risk of heart disease, this programme investigates why they are not getting the care they need and what more needs to be done.

The Power And The Passion – The Geordie Nation:
Newcastle United v Anyone Ep 4/4

Monday 28 June
8.00-8.30pm BBC WORLD SERVICE

David Goldblatt concludes his journey to four very different football games to experience the build-up and pitch action from the perspective of the fans.

The final episode follows David as he visits Newcastle on 11 May 2009 to watch United play local rivals Middlesbrough. At this late stage in the season, both clubs were in deep trouble and fighting to avoid relegation. In the event, Newcastle, backed by an unbroken wall of noise, won the game. But the fans' relief proved short-lived, as even temporary manager and Newcastle hero Alan Shearer's legendary aura failed to save them from relegation to England's second tier, the Championship.

Newcastle United's recent woes form a tragicomic litany – scandal, sackings and mismanagement, and now relegation.

David speaks to former Newcastle United owner Sir John Hall, a key figure in the regeneration of the club in the Eighties, who reveals the impossible dream of The Geordie Nation.

By the time David returns to Newcastle United in April 2010 hope has returned. This solitary season in the lower league has bonded fans and club together, and now they face Ipswich – the result almost irrelevant, for Newcastle have already clinched both promotion and the Championship title. But even in their hour of triumph, already fans are beginning to air their doubts and wonder at what the future might bring.
