They Did It Their Way – The Story Of Reprise Records

Tuesday 13 September
10.00–11.00pm BBC RADIO 2

Paul Gambaccini explores the history of Reprise Records – the label set up and owned by Frank Sinatra – 50 years after his first song was released on it.

The programme looks back on their impressive roster which, as well as Frank himself, included acts as varied as Sammy Davis Jnr, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Green Day, Stevie Nicks and Michael Bublé.

Original interviews give a personal insight into a label which was regarded by many as having the best artist development programme there has ever been.

Paul plays music from the Reprise back catalogue, spanning 50 years and many wildly differing genres.

There's also stories from behind the scenes, including how Sinatra beat Jack Jones to the release of Strangers In The Night, thanks to the insight and genius of producer Jimmy Bowen.

Reader's Digest – Trouble In Pleasantville

Tuesday 13 September
11.30am-12.00noon BBC RADIO 4

Reader's Digest was, for decades, a publishing phenomenon across the globe but in recent years has faced bankruptcy and declining readership. John Waite asks why one of the world's most successful publishers has hit hard times.

DeWitt Wallace was a man with one simple but brilliant idea: to condense articles of note from a range of magazines and collect them together in one publication.

He set up shop with his wife and began to build the biggest magazine operation in the world – at one stage selling more than 18 million copies a month in America alone. The first of many foreign editions arrived in Britain in 1938 – eventually these international editions would cover the globe and be printed in 21 languages.

In this programme John visits the offices of Reader's Digest in the UK to find out how efforts are working out to make the brand attractive and successful once again.

The Price Of Power

Tuesday 13 September
8.00-8.40pm BBC RADIO 4

Writer and journalist Jonathan Freedland addresses the knotty problem of MPs' pay and conditions.

When British MPs voted for the first time in August 1911 to receive salaries, they took a big step towards creating a professional cadre of career politicians rather than a gentleman's club.

In this programme, Jonathan starts by looking at the current level of MPs' pay before exploring pensions and expenses. He will examine the history of MPs' pay awards, to recent years when MPs were compared with the Civil Service, and to the present-day system put in place by Parliament, in consultation with the Senior Salaries Review Body.

Interviewees include: MPs David Davies, Tristram Hunt, Adam Afriye, Chris Mullin, John Mann and Denis McShane; former MP Dave Nellist; IPSA director and former Liberal Democrat MP Jackie Ballard; SSRB boss Bill Cockburn; ITV chairman and former MP Archie Norman; and Kenyan MP Ababu Namwamba.
