Discovering Music

Drama On 3 – Charles And Mary

Sunday 16 January
8.00-9.30pm BBC RADIO 3

Specially written for BBC Radio 3, Carlo Gebler's new play dramatises the extraordinary relationship between brother and sister Charles and Mary Lamb, the writers of The Tales Of Shakespeare, first published in 1807. The seminal children's introduction to Shakespeare is still in print.

The play is based on the tragic circumstances behind Charles and Mary's partnership, as a combination of poverty and stress drove her to commit a shocking crime.

As Charles struggles to take care of her, the main essence of the play explores the connection between literary creativity and mental equilibrium.

Carlo Gebler is an experienced novelist and playwright. His novels include The Eleventh Summer, The Cure and How To Murder A Man. His plays include an Irish version of The Dance Of Death and 10 Rounds.

Lia Williams plays Mary and Paul Rhys plays Charles with support from Anna Carteret, Dudley Sutton, Mark Bazeley and Marcella Riordan.

Director/Roland Jaquarello

BBC RADIO 4 FILM SEASON
Exploding Cinema

Sunday 16 January
1.30-2.00pm BBC RADIO 4

As part of BBC Radio 4's film season, acclaimed British director Asif Kapadia uncovers Exploding Cinema, a coalition of underground film-makers who challenge the audience to rethink the way they watch and rate film.

Exploding Cinema, or "Exploding" for the initiated, turns 20 this year and is still going strong. A collective of film-makers and film-lovers, it pledges to screen any film that someone submits. With Exploding Cinema there is no selection or censorship; it holds firmly by the principle that the question of what is good and what is not, is solely for the audience to decide.

The programme hears from film-makers who currently show their work at Exploding Cinema. These include interactive film-making group Genetic Moo, who describe their maggot-themed installations which feed off the light emitted from other films; Mucky Puppets speak about their shadow puppet films exploring the darker side of well-known fairy tales; and listeners follow Ryd Cook as he films the sequel to his 60 Second Documentary About The Stuff What Is In This Room.

Now that it is possible for anyone to show pretty much any film online via video sharing websites like YouTube and Vimeo, the programme asks what implications this has for a group such as Exploding Cinema.

6 Mix – Back To The Phuture: Blancmange And Mirrors

Sunday 16 January
8.00-10.00pm BBC 6 MUSIC

Record company boss and electronic music enthusiast Mark Jones continues his series exploring synthesised music past and present.

In the latest show, Mark talks to keyboard duo Blancmange. Described by Mute Records' Daniel Miller as the "maiden aunts of electronic music", Blancmange shot to fame in the early Eighties with a string of top 10 hits including Living On the Ceiling, Blind Vision and Don't Tell Me.

Cited as influences by bands including La Roux and Faithless, who recently collaborated with vocalist Neil Arthur on their album The Dance, Blancmange release a new album in March after a break of 25 years.

The duo join Mark to talk about the music which inspired them to pick up electronic instruments, why they've decided to reunite and what they've been up to in the intervening years.

In the last half hour of the show, there's a guest mix from new Brighton-based electro band Mirrors. Having toured Europe with OMD at the tail end of last year, the band play a mix of the "synthfluences" which have informed their debut album Broken By Silence, which is due out in February.
