BBC Radio 1's Stories – International Radio 1:
Jaymo And Andy George In Warsaw

Monday 15 November
9.00-10.00pm BBC RADIO 1

BBC Radio 1's In New DJs We Trust duo Andy George and Jaymo head for the Polish capital, where, 20 years after Communism, club culture is still in the process of defining itself, as the documentary series, which sees DJs travel to countries to explore their musical and social backdrop, continues.

With a largely Westward-looking music scene and relatively undeveloped clubbing infrastructure, Warsaw's DJs are employing a DIY attitude to create their own independent scene.

Andy and Jaymo sit in with National Radio DJ Norbert Borzym, Poland's answer to Pete Tong, to discover how pop-up parties and blogging are helping the next generation discover electronic dance music. Fuelling the current enthusiasm is a trend for DJ teams: collectives who take care of all aspects of putting on a club night, from promotion to décor and music.

By day the duo walk through the arty, edgy suburbs of Praga, attempt to navigate the city's tram system and drink beetroot soup in a milk bar. They also attend the multi-genre Freeform festival in a disused vodka factory, and perform a DJ set at the ultra-hip Hungry Hungry Models Party.

International Radio 1 continues next week at 9pm with Ras Kwame in Ghana.

Previous International Radio 1 documentaries have included: Gilles Peterson In Istanbul, Dan P Carter In Sydney and Bobby Friction going to the musical edge at the Burning Man Festival in California.

Monday evenings 9-10pm is the home of Radio 1 Stories where, each week, listeners find documentaries. Recent highlights include The Art Of Noise, Africa Makes Some Noise, The A-Z Of Vampire Weekend, The Story Of The Noughties and The Story Of The DIY Video.

The Rainy City

Monday 15 November
10.00am-1.00pm BBC RADIO 2

Elbow front-man and BBC 6 Music presenter Guy Garvey discovers that it is thanks to, rather than in spite of, the rain that Manchester has become a powerhouse for progressive culture and politics.

Speaking to a mix of people from the worlds of music, sport, literature, media and politics, Guy first makes an appointment with weather forecaster Diane Oxberry. Local historian Jonathan Schofield then explains how the weather has had a significant impact on the city's industrial development, proving ideal conditions for spinning yarn and powering mills.

He examines the work of artist LS Lowry, with the help of museum director Michael Simpson; considers the music of Morrissey and Joy Division; and catches up with I Am Kloot front-man Johnny Bramwell. Punk-poet John Cooper Clarke shares a theory that the rain encourages creativity and community spirit, while award-winning screenwriter Paul Abbott talks about the rain scenes he created in popular dramas such as Cracker and Shameless.

With the help of DJ Dave Haslam, Guy traces the evolution of Manchester's nightlife, from 19th-century music halls such as Ben Langs to the Magic Village in the Sixties, and onto the heady days of the Hacienda. Meanwhile, former Lancashire and England cricketer David Lloyd remembers fire engines being called to drain the pitch at Old Trafford.

Throughout the programme, listeners hear music from some of Manchester's most treasured musicians and extracts from poetry and literature.

This programme was first broadcast on BBC 6 Music in October 2010.

Composer Of The Week – Britten

Monday 15 to Friday 19 November
12.00noon-1.00pm BBC RADIO 3

Donald Macleod looks into English composer Benjamin Britten’s influences
Donald Macleod looks into English composer Benjamin Britten’s influences

Donald Macleod reveals some of the wealth of music that English composer Benjamin Britten wrote during his remarkably successful career, with particular consideration to two enduring influences – his life partner, the tenor Peter Pears, and his beloved native county of Suffolk.

The BBC helped advance Britten's career by broadcasting two chamber pieces he had composed while still a student at the Royal College of Music. He was soon writing soundtracks for the GPO Film Unit as well as incidental music for theatre, TV and radio. In Monday's programme, Donald introduces music from those early years including one of Britten's best-known soundtracks for the GPO – Night Mail, and two works written during his wartime years in America – The Seven Sonnets Of Michelangelo, written for Pears, and his first opera, based on the story of the mythological lumberjack Paul Bunyan.

Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams marks the 100th anniversary of Tolstoy's death

To mark the 100th anniversary of his death, this week's Essays consider the life and work of one of the giants of Russian literature, Leo Tolstoy.

Famous for works like War And Peace and Anna Karenina and novellas such as Hadji Murad and The Death Of Ivan Ilyich, Tolstoy continues to fascinate modern audiences.

Five different presenters explain their own passion for the works of Tolstoy and the Russia he evokes. Coming from very different backgrounds, all the presenters of these essays have had their lives touched – directly and indirectly – by Tolstoy's works.

The contributors are Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury; writer and newspaper columnist AN Wilson; award-winning novelist Helen Dunmore; Professor Anthony Briggs, a specialist in 19th-century Russian literature; and Bridget Kendall BBC radio correspondent to Moscow from 1989-1995.

Book Of The Week –
What I Don't Know About Animals Ep 1/5

New series
Monday 15 to Friday 19 November
9.45-10.00am BBC RADIO 4

Author Jenny Diski uses her own life as a framework to offer an entertaining and rigorous examination of the relationship between people, the wild and the stuffed, the cuddly and the caged.

Beginning with the early rescue of a bird in London's Regent's Park, and an indifferent relationship to childhood pets, she moves on to look at the way in which fictional animal characters are used to explain the ways of the human world to children.

Adulthood brings a series of relationships with cats and the thorny question of how people talk to animals. Jacques Derrida and Dr Dolittle are both enlisted to help. A fear of spiders reveals the lurking possibility of darker traumas; a visit to a sheep farm confronts listeners with innocent charm and lunch; while an attempt at horse-riding provokes the question of who is in charge.

What I Don't Know About Animals is read by Lesley Manville.

The New MBAs Ep 1/2

New series
Monday 15 November
11.00-11.30am BBC RADIO 4

The New MBAs takes a critical look at how UK business schools are responding to the 2008 crash by teaching more about ethics, sustainability and corporate responsibility.

When the global economy crashed in 2008 it seemed like all the people in charge had an MBA from a top business school, from President George W Bush, through treasury secretary Hank Paulson to the heads of Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch, General Motors and more. Indeed many of the collapsed companies were famous for hiring whole posses of smart MBAs.

Some business school heads conceded they share the blame, none more readily than the dean of Cass Business School in the City of London, Richard Gillingwater. He said that although ethics and values were embedded in parts of their courses, they needed to deal more explicitly with topics like short versus long-term decision-making, appropriate rewards and corporate responsibility.

So in 2009 he set up a review of all the school's graduate courses and this programme follows it over a period of 12 months as it becomes the Ethics, Sustainability and Engagement project, headed by a new dean of ethics and guided by their own corporate philosopher-in-residence.

The programme sits in on lectures, seminars, debates and discussions that show how MBA courses are delivered, and how ethical issues in particular are now being tackled.

Dave Podmore's History Of The Ashes In 100 Objects

Monday 15 November
11.30am-12.00noon BBC RADIO 4

In this comedy written by Christopher Douglas, Andrew Nickolds and Nick Newman, Pod, England's laziest cricketer, is invited by his faithful sidekick Andy Hamer to compile his own History Of The Ashes In 100 Objects for Andy's radio show.

Pod agrees on the condition he gets to visit Oz to try and win his attractive wife Jacqui back from the hairy arms of an Aussie cricketer. On the flight "Down Under", Pod shows Andy the historically significant 69 tins of Fosters with which he's just set the all-time England-to-Australia-beer-drinking record.

Pod and Andy then accidentally create a diplomatic incident by letting slip that both Heartbeat and The Bill have been cancelled in the UK, devastating Australian TV schedules for decades.

Pod persuades Jacqui to take him back, as the winnings on the bet he's just placed on her doing so will more than make up for his shortcomings as a lover, a man and a human being.

Andy reluctantly returns to England having failed almost completely in the task of collecting 100 objects but with a £50 note as his cut of Pod's gambling winnings.

Comedian Robin Ince and physicist Brian Cox
Comedian Robin Ince and physicist Brian Cox

Physicist Brian Cox and comedian Robin Ince return for the third series of the witty, irreverent science show.

In the first episode of the series, Brian and Robin are joined by comedian Andy Hamilton to discuss some of the wackier apocalyptic theories, as well as those more grounded in scientific fact.

They ask if the Mayans knew something that we didn't with their prediction of global annihilation in 2012, and if energies and scientific know-how should be focussed on some of the more likely scenarios; from near-Earth asteroids, to climate change and deadly pandemics, or even the more long-term possibilities of the Sun burning out – although we have got roughly another 5 billion years to ponder the challenge of that problem.
