Performance On 3

Friday 15 October
7.00-9.15pm BBC RADIO 3

The London Philharmonic Orchestra pairs up with inspiring Finnish conductor Osmo Vänskä for Walton's emotive First Symphony. It is a massively structured epic of broad Romantic sweep and struggle, containing both a grandeur and high-voltage electricity alongside the infectious syncopations of jazz.

Young Polish violinist Agatha Szymczewska makes her UK concerto debut in Mendelssohn's heartstring-tugging Concerto, and the concert opens with a UK première from Magnus Lindberg, co-commissioned by the New York Philharmonic, where he is composer in residence.

A History Of The World In 100 Objects Ep 25/30

Monday 11 to Friday 15 October
9.45-10.00am BBC RADIO 4

British Museum director Neil MacGregor discusses the first object from the 20th century today, in the series telling the history of the world through artefacts from the museum. It's a coin that leads him to consider the rise of mass political engagement in Britain and the dramatic emergence of Suffragette power.

The object is a penny coin from 1903 on which the image of King Edward VII has been stamped with the words "votes for women". The programme explores the rise of women's suffrage and the implications of the notorious Suffragette protests. Human rights lawyer and reformer Helena Kennedy and artist Felicity Powell react to this defaced penny coin.

Afternoon Play – Every Child Matters

Friday 15 October
2.15-3.00pm BBC RADIO 4

Sarah Lancashire stars as social worker Joanne, who six months previously found herself at the centre of a major scandal, in Christopher Reason's drama.

Her client Debbie Hurst was caught exhibiting her 10-year-old daughter over the internet to paedophiles. Joanne was suspended on full pay, pending a disciplinary tribunal.

But then worse, much worse: her name and identity were leaked to the press and she found herself in tabloid hell. Today, the client is back in court for sentencing; word has it she'll get at least eight years. Meanwhile, Joanne has been secretly fed information that the client's children are to be fostered out to their grandfather. So despite the injunction that she contact no colleagues while suspended, Joanne persuades her former lover and work colleague David to meet her in secret.

Sarah Lancashire plays Joanne and George Costigan plays David.

Fergal Keane delves into the treasures of Nelson Mandela's personal archives
Fergal Keane delves into the treasures of Nelson Mandela's personal archives

Award-winning journalist Fergal Keane takes a journey through the until-now unheard personal archives of Nelson Mandela, bequeathed to the Nelson Mandela Foundation last year. He unearths a treasure trove of letters, notebooks, personal calendars and meditations which offer an extraordinary insight into Mandela's disciplines, life lessons, intimate thoughts and questions, and into the moral and political vision which inspired and continues to inspire so many.

The first programme provides glimpses into Mandela's upbringing, his early years as an activist with the ANC and his personal relationships with friends and family. Fergal hears intimate conversations with close colleagues, Nelson's voice in letters to Winnie Mandela and his thoughts and strategies on how to become a leader and a revolutionary.
