In Search Of Mimi

Monday 29 November
10.00-11.00pm BBC RADIO 2

American singing star Mariah Carey
American singing star Mariah Carey

In Search Of Mimi is a detailed look at the life and times of singer Mariah Carey, who is celebrating 20 years in the music business. Trevor Nelson traces her career ups and downs and looks for the real person behind the sugary image and much written about diva demands.

Nelson begins with the moment Carey was signed by her record company, moving on to her first single, Vision Of Love, and the MTV Unplugged sessions which showcased her tremendous vocal range. Along the way, listeners hear the music that made her famous, from Emotions and Fantasy to the lesser-known tracks that Mariah cherishes, including Underneath The Stars and The Roof.

Listeners hear from Mariah's colleagues and close friends, including her video directing collaborator Brett Ratner, who sheds light on working with her on the sets of her music videos: "We're like two kids in a candy store."

From her back-up singers Trey Lorenz and Mary Ann Tatum, there are tales about her antics on tour and in the studio; while her close friend Jasmine Dotiwala talks about being on holiday with Mariah and her real character behind closed doors.

There are also insights from her executive producer and head of Island Def Jam records, LA Reid; and Lee Daniels, director of award-winning film Precious, talks about choosing Mariah for the part of Ms Weiss and how she adapted to the character and worked on set without a huge entourage.

And there's an interview with Mariah Carey herself, recorded recently in New York City. Mariah talks candidly about her background, the stories behind some of her personal favourite songs, her struggles with her identity and her love of hip hop. She speaks openly and honestly about her lack of control at the beginning of her career and how her sense of humour has got her through the darkest times in her life.

As Mariah gets set to release her latest album, Merry Christmas II You, she discloses how she'll be spending her festive holiday while also revealing what's next for one of the biggest-selling female artists of all time.

Christopher Stevens's biography of Kenneth Williams details the life and rise to fame of the Carry On star.

Kenneth Williams was one of the stand-out comic actors of his generation. Beloved as the manic star of Carry On films and as a peerless raconteur on television chat shows and radio comedies, he was also acclaimed for serious stage roles.

In the first episode, the young Kenneth Williams shows academic promise and an instinct for comedy, but his father tells him he must learn a trade.

In Tuesday's episode, Williams is an established star of the Carry On films and is offered a role in a new radio comedy series.

Wednesday's programme reveals the closest Williams came to having a love affair; and in Thursday's episode, he joins close friends Tom and Clive on holiday in Morocco.

By the final programme on Friday, Williams is the voice of Willo The Wisp; a regular on television chat shows and BBC Radio 4's Just A Minute; and is invited to direct Joe Orton's play, Loot.

The reader is Nicholas Boulton and the book is abridged by Libby Spurrier.

Power To Persuade – The Story Of NLP

Monday 29 November
11.00-11.30am BBC RADIO 4

Journalist William Little explores the history and techniques of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).

Thousands claim NLP has changed their lives but what exactly is it and is there any evidence that it works? William takes a closer look.

This psychological technique, developed in Seventies California by John Grinder and Richard Bandler, was radically different from mainstream therapies of the time. Like some of the other techniques that evolved then, NLP offered users fast results instead of the years of commitment required for psychoanalysis.

But today NLP has largely moved away from its more clinical origins to become a major player in the self-help marketplace, spawning numerous teachers and schools. Its most prolific gurus are multi-millionaires and, in the case of Paul McKenna, household names.

NLP is seen by its critics as just another pseudo-science and another branch of complementary therapy. For all the commercial success and anecdotal testimony, some argue that there is no objective evidence to support its claims.

This programme explores whether NLP genuinely helps achieve powerful behavioural change, or if it has become something of a pyramid scheme, creating a glut of trainers and helping some at the top get richer.

William, author of The Psychic Tourist, finds out for himself what it's like to experience NLP techniques, meets those who have used it to change their lives and interviews some of its most famous exponents: the masters of so-called "persuasion engineering".

Afternoon Play – Blue Eyed Boy

Monday 29 November
2.15-3.00pm BBC RADIO 4

Blue Eyed Boy is the true story of evacuee Lawrence Cross. In this powerful and moving documentary-drama by Helen Cross tells her father Lawrence's story. Told through improvised interviews and re-created actuality, the play is constructed as a documentary, as if it were happening in real time.

In 1944, when he was five years old, Lawrence Duncomb was evacuated from Blitz-torn London to a village on the outskirts of Hull and taken in by a childless couple. Lawrence had never eaten at a table before, never said prayers, never slept alone in a bed or had to mind his manners.

Lilian is determined to raise him as a well-mannered Christian. She wants this substitute-child to accept and be grateful for all that she's offering. Her husband, Dick, also knows she's desperate at the thought of the boy leaving her after the war.

Lawrence shows no sign of settling in and seems to resent everything Lilian does for him. When the war finally ends, he's delighted to return to London, but his teacher starts to complain that he's never at school. His mother Violet can't keep track of him because she's always at work, and it's hard enough to feed her other five sons on her wages.

Eventually Violet gives way to constant pressure from Lilian and hands Lawrence over at a meeting at the Russell Hotel, too exhausted to try to hold on to him.

The play concludes with an interview with the real Lawrence. He says he never stopped missing his mother and when he finally tracked her down as an adult, her first words were: "I've been waiting for you to call."

Albie D'Urso plays Lawrence, Jane Thornton plays Lilian, John Godber plays Dick, Lindsey Coulson plays Violet, Rasmus Hardiker plays Ronnie and Sean Baker plays the Head Teacher.
