Saving Species Ep 10/23

Tuesday 2 November
11.00-11.30am BBC RADIO 4

Saving Species features the spectacle of wintering geese and reports from Islay and Norfolk, as Brett Westwood continues to examine the world of nature and the challenges of wildlife conservation.

Joanna Pinnock is in Norfolk with pink-footed geese, and Michael Scott is in Islay edging ever closer to Greenland white-fronted geese and barnacle geese. The conservation of these birds is a great success story linking the UK with the Arctic, and the geese, with other wildfowl, provide one of the great animal spectacles of the world.

Tom, Michael And George

Tuesday 2 November
11.30am-12.00noon BBC RADIO 4

Toby Jones marks the 50th anniversary of British horror film Peeping Tom, and examines its effects on the careers of director Michael Powell and photographer George Harrison Marks.

There was widespread condemnation of Peeping Tom. Anglo-Amalgamated, which had financed the film, was alarmed at the furore and curtailed the film's UK distribution, selling it on.

The film resurfaced in the United States and Europe a couple of years later, but in a cut version. When the film arrived at the British Board of Film Classification in 1960, seven cuts were made in order to allow the film to be classified at "X".

For Michael Powell, the hostile reaction to this movie effectively ended his long and illustrious career, which had included The Red Shoes and A Matter Of Life And Death.

Conversely, for George Harrison Marks, a consultant on the film, it boosted his career, leading to the first British feature film to include nudity.

Peeping Tom was only recognised as a masterpiece in the late Seventies, thanks to the efforts of Martin Scorsese.

Contributors to the programme include Michael's son, Columba Powell; Shirley Anne Field, who appeared in the film; and Michael Winner.

Beat It – The World Of The Modern Drummer

Tuesday 2 November
1.30-2.00pm BBC RADIO 4

Beat It – The World Of The Modern Drummer is a fun exploration of life at the back of a band.

Phill Jupitus explores the modern drummer with contributions from Phil Collins, Stewart Copeland, Dame Evelyn Glennie and Radiohead's Phil Selway.

The programme features Clem Burke, drummer with Blondie, and Dr Marcus Smith who, together, have proven that Clem burns a similar amount of calories during a concert as a Premier League footballer during a match. Phil Collins and Stewart Copeland explain how they cope with the physical demands of performing and their reactions to negative images of the drummer.

This programme hears its fair share of drummer jokes and Collins reveals what he thought of the gorilla crashing his way through In The Air Tonight for that famous television commercial.

In Nick Warburton's touching play, Mike is called to the bedside of his mother who is fading away. But for some reason he can't settle and sit with her.

Mike arrives at the hospital in the middle of the night. He walks through empty corridors looking for a coffee machine. Without realising it he's avoiding sitting at his mother's bedside.

He gets talking to an auxiliary nurse, a disgruntled but determined young woman whose life is starting, just as his mother's is ending. As he tells this complete stranger about his mum's uneventful life, her small achievements, he comes to understand some of the mechanisms at play in his strange inability to sit with her.

And he, in turn, is able to help the young nurse put her own situation and immature predicaments into perspective.

Mike is played by James Fleet and the nurse by Hannah Pierce.

Author Lynda La Plante offers listeners a Red Herring

Red Herrings presents three short stories, specially written for BBC Radio 4 by leading authors Lynda La Plante, Brian McGilloway and Andrew Taylor, which feature that most effective weapon in the crime writer's arsenal of weapons – the red herring.

The first, Unwanted Presence, is a suspenseful tale by Lynda La Plante, read by Rory Kinnear, about a young boy and his parents who come to terms with a death in the family.

On Wednesday, Eugene O'Hare reads In Pursuit Of The Uneatable, a new crime story by Brian McGilloway. In a new case for McGilloway's detective hero Inspector Benedict Devlin, protesters get more than they bargained for at a fox hunt on the Irish borderland.

Lastly in this series of short stories, on Thursday, James Fleet reads a new crime story by Andrew Taylor, Catch-13. Taylor displays his pedigree with a brilliant story that twists and turns its way to a stimulating conclusion.

Readers/Rory Kinnear, Eugene O'Hare and James Fleet, Producer/Kirsteen Cameron for the BBC

All In The Mind Ep 1/8

New series
Tuesday 2 November
9.00-9.30pm BBC RADIO 4

Claudia Hammond reports on the UK's first-ever study tracking the mental health of the military while they were on active combat in Iraq, as the series exploring the limits and potential of the human mind returns.

The mental health of the UK's armed forces has been analysed before they go to war, and then tested again when they return home. But, until now, there's been scant evidence about the psychological health of the Army, Air Force and the Navy while they're actively deployed in a war zone.

Claudia Hammond reports on the first-ever UK study of Military personnel in a theatre of war, in Iraq, which gauges levels of psychological distress, post traumatic stress disorder and general health.

One of the report's authors, Professor Simon Wessely, director of the King's Centre for Military Health Research, describes the mental health lessons being learned from the front line.
