Freddie Fox plays Puck

A fairyland quarrel causes a night of midsummer madness for two pairs of Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors in Shakespeare's magical play featuring an all-star cast including Lesley Sharp, Toby Stephens, Freddie Fox, Robert Pugh and Roger Allam.

The play revolves around the adventures of four young lovers – Hermia, Lysander, Helena and Demetrius – a group of amateur actors, and their interactions with the fairies who inhabit a moonlit forest.

Their romantic intrigues are confused and complicated further still by entering the forest, where Oberon King of the fairies (Toby Stephens) and his queen, Titania (Lesley Sharp), preside.

With Freddie Fox as Puck, Robert Pugh as Peter Quince, Roger Allam as Bottom and Nicholas Farrell as Theseus, the production was recorded this summer on location in 22 acres of Sussex woodland, and features music by Stephanie Nunn.

Sunday Feature – A Guernica For Gotham

Sunday 11 September
10.00-10.45pm BBC RADIO 3

Ten years ago, Judith Kampfner, then a reporter for WNYC, New York Public Radio, was given assignments in the immediate aftermath of 9/11 to interview artists and arts institutions on how the tragedy would impact art.

At a meeting with Glenn Lowry, head of the Museum of Modern Art, she asked if there might be an equivalent of Picasso's iconic Guernica. He answered that if anyone could respond passionately, then New York City artists – from all genres – could.

Now, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, Judith revisits Lowry to ask him who or what he would single out as having commemorated or paid tribute to the destruction of the Twin Towers and its impact.

Interviewees include composer Steve Reich, writer Meg Wolitzer, sculptor Eric Fischl and art critic Arthur Danto.

The Reunion Ep 6/6

Sunday 11 September
11.15am-12.00noon BBC RADIO 4

In the last episode of this series of The Reunion, Sue MacGregor brings together those who created the musical Les Miserables, which has been playing to audiences around the world for more than 25 years.

The show was conceived in 1980 by French librettist Alain Boublil and composer Claude-Michel Schonberg. There wasn't a scene for musical theatre in France at the time so they turned their attention to Britain and eventually found a young established producer of musicals, Cameron Mackintosh.

The show opened at London's Barbican theatre in October 1985, then moved into the West End and onto Broadway. To this day the show has played in more than 42 countries worldwide and in 21 languages.

To recall the beginning of Les Miserables and to reflect on its enduring popularity, Sue is joined by producer Cameron Mackintosh; composer Claude-Michel Schonberg; actor Michael Ball; lyricist Herbert Kretzmer; and director John Caird.

Picturing Britain Ep 1/5

Sunday 11 September
2.45-3.00pm BBC RADIO 4

In Picturing Britain, Adil Ray looks at British life through the lens of contemporary photographers.

In the first of a new series, Adil talks to Tim Walker, one of the country's most influential photographers, as he creates one of his dramatic and epic sets. On a windy hill in Northumberland, models mount seahorses, and dining room tables laden with crystal and china are hauled high into the canopy of a beech forest.

For more than a decade, Tim's exuberant pictures have defined style in the world's fashion magazines. And the bleaker the economy, the more his imagination and fairytale extravagance are in demand – whether it is Lily Cole eating from a giant indoor cake tree, Erin O'Connor dressed as a swan amongst geese, or Otis Ferry posing indoors with beagles at his ankles.

Adil enters Tim's dream world to look at the impact he has on British design and beauty.

The First Time ... With Bjork

Sunday 11 September
12.00midday-1.00pm BBC RADIO 6 MUSIC

Bjork talks presenter Matt Everitt through the history of her varied career.

Bjork is widely considered one of the greatest musical artists of a generation – a creative maverick not only in her abstract view of what music should be, but she also has a thinking-outside-the-box mentality of what music could be.

Her eclectic musical style has achieved acknowledgement and popularity within many musical genres, from rock and jazz to electronic dance music to classical via folk.

She begins by talking about how she first fell in love with music after being fascinated by the artwork of her parents' vinyl collection of Joni Mitchell and Frank Zappa records; she recorded her debut album aged just 11.

She then recalls forming The Sugarcubes and working with her musical peer, Thom Yorke, and reveals why she thinks James Blake will be the next big thing and what inspires her to constantly return to the recording studio and the stage.
