FIRST CLICK

Sunday 17 to Friday 22 October
Throughout the week on BBC RADIO 2

Sir Terry Wogan, the BBC's media literacy ambassador, launches First Click on BBC Radio 2 on his Weekend Wogan show today between 11am and 1pm.

For a week, as part of the BBC's First Click campaign, presenters across Radio 2 encourage more of their listeners to get online, or, if they already know how to use a computer, urge them to show a friend or relative how to do it.

There will be discussions and special guests on different shows across the network. Jeremy Vine speaks to a listener who he helped get online, live on his show in March, about how it has changed her life. He also considers whether the internet, with its power to entertain and educate, is a force for good in the world.

Steve Wright In The Afternoon is joined by his technology experts Helen and Olly, who answer listeners' questions about how to get online, and give their tips on the best way to teach someone how to use a computer. Steve is also joined by the Government's digital champion and founder of lastminute.com – Martha Lane Fox.

Alex Lester asks his listeners to share their stories of helping others to use a computer. Ken Bruce looks at how the internet is great for music lovers. Janice Long shines a spotlight on internet shopping, and Simon Mayo looks at how the internet can save you money.

If Radio 2 listeners aren't online but would like to be, presenters will be directing them to the BBC First Click Advice Line on 08000 150 950 to find a beginners' computer course in their local area.

There will also be videos on the Radio 2 website – bbc.co.uk/radio2 – of Radio 2 presenters and other well-known personalities explaining how to do things, such as join an online conversation, or addressing issues such as online privacy.

Private Passions – Marina Lewycka

Sunday 17 October
12.00noon-1.00pm BBC RADIO 3

Author Marina Lewycka reveals her private musical passions
Author Marina Lewycka reveals her private musical passions

Marina Lewycka, author of A Short History Of Tractors In Ukrainian, Two Caravans and We Are All Made Of Glue, talks to Michael Berkeley about her passion for music.

Talking to Michael Berkeley, Marina begins with two classics of the Baroque repertoire, Bach's First Brandenburg Concerto and the aria I Know That My Redeemer Liveth from Handel's Messiah.

Her next choice is the Sibelius Violin Concerto, a great favourite of her father.

Marina attempts to play her next choice, Mozart's Piano Sonata in F, K332, herself. She loves music that tells a story and has chosen the March To The Scaffold from Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique, for its narrative energy.

She says that all writers aspire to draw joy out of sadness, which Mozart does to consummate effect in the Countess's aria, Dove sono from The Marriage Of Figaro.

Marina's own origins are referenced in the traditional Ukrainian folksong The Black Raven, while her deep love of nature is reflected in the sound of a dawn chorus greeting the coming day.

Drama On 3 – The Unfortunates

Sunday 17 October
8.00-9.30pm BBC RADIO 3

Martin Freeman stars as a sports journalist in The Unfortunates
Martin Freeman stars as a sports journalist in The Unfortunates

Martin Freeman stars in Graham White's adaptation of BS Johnson's novel, in which a sports journalist travels to a strange city to cover a football match, only to discover it was the city where he first met his friend Tony, who has died young of cancer.

The Unfortunates follows the journalist from his arrival at the train station, through lunch, to the match and on the journey home as different memories of his friend are triggered.

Originally published in 27 unbound pamphlets in a box, The Unfortunates was intended to be read in a random order. The lack of a fixed order is suggestive of the way memories occur, and the book becomes a meditation not just on friendship and loss, but also on the nature of memory and writing as the hero, Bryan, struggles to recall everything in order to "get it all down" as he promised his dying friend he would.

Listeners will be able to reshuffle the separate sections of the broadcast at bbc.co.uk/radio3.

Bryan is played by Martin Freeman, Tony by Patrick Kennedy, Wendy by Claire Rushbrook, June by Jacqueline Defferary, Tony's father by Sean Baker, First Aid Woman/Tony's Mother by Christine Kavanagh and Station Announcer/Reporter by Tony Bell. Other cast members are Sally Orrock, Jude Akuwudike, Lloyd Thomas and Sam Dale.

The First Time With Tricky

Sunday 17 October
12.00noon-1.00pm BBC 6 MUSIC

The First Time continues with Matt Everitt tackling one of contemporary music's more introspective and often impenetrable artists – Tricky.

Always an artist to walk his own path, Tricky has grown from being a key member of Massive Attack to establishing himself as a solo artist with 1995's acclaimed Maxinquaye – and since has pursued a fascinating (and often frustratingly fleet-footed) career, blurring the lines of hip hop, jazz, rock and reggae with often startling results. Matt talks to him about this; his career path, his varied influences, his role as a acclaimed producer and his battles with the way he's represented in the media.
