Jarvis Cocker's Musical Map Of Sheffield
Tuesday 1 July
10.30-11.30pm BBC RADIO 2

Jarvis Cocker takes listeners on a tour of his home town, Sheffield

a tour of his home town,

Jarvis Cocker takes listeners on an intimate tour of Sheffield in this evocative Musical Map, creating a soundtrack of music to drive his memories, feelings and observations about his home town.


"Sheffield's my city, it's where I grew up, and although I've moved away for now, I'd like to try and show you around. Sorry if we get lost, it changes every time I come here," he says.


Jarvis recalls his childhood, listening just to conversations about love and disappointment. He introduces the music of Sheffield legends including Joe Cocker, Cabaret Voltaire, Human League and Artery, and remembers how the city came to life with music in the post-punk era.


He thinks aloud about growing up in a city that was healing its wounds after big industry moved out, and of the confusion of regeneration – the mistakes, the Student Games, the National Centre for Popular Music, the "hole on the ground" shopping wasteland and the housing estates.

The Greatest Dance Music Records Of All Time
Ep 1/3
Tuesday 1 July
11.30pm-12.00midnight BBC RADIO 2

Zoe Ball presents this new three-part series to accompany The Definitive History Of UK Dance Music (on Saturdays at 7pm) which covers the story of UK dance music from 1970 to the recent past.


A stellar list of contributors to that programme formed a panel of 10, who decided on the shortlist for the greatest dance records of all time. The panel included Ian Levine, Carl Cox, Danny Rampling, Chris Hill and Sasha. A shortlist of tracks can be found online at


The criteria used were musical brilliance; significance; importance in the story of UK dance music; and significant association with an important UK dance genre, club, event or region.


This list is then voted for by BBC Radio 2 listeners who whittle the 20 tracks down to the top 10. Over the course of the countdown, Zoe hears stories of the records themselves from artists, DJs and assorted dance luminaries.


In this first programme, Zoe begins the countdown of the 10 Greatest Dance Records of All Time, counting down from 10 to seven.

Composer Of The Week – Victoria:
The Young Jesuit
Ep 2/5
Monday 30 June to Friday 4 July
12.00-1.00pm BBC RADIO 3

Donald Macleod, accompanied by Jeremy Summerly, continues to explore the life of Tomàs Luis de Victoria (born 1548) – singer, organist, composer and priest – whose music is the crown of the Spanish Renaissance School.


Today, Victoria's early years are explored. It was as a chorister at Avila Cathedral that Victoria cut his teeth as a musician, but his theological education started at the local Jesuit School, which was endorsed by St Teresa of Avila. When his voice broke, Victoria travelled to Rome to enrol as an international boarder at the Collegium Germanicum – a Jesuit college which trained German missionaries. Thus began a rich and varied career in the city, spanning 20 years.

Afternoon On 3
Tuesday 1 July
2.00-5.00pm BBC RADIO 3

Cultural cross currents guide Louise Fryer's journey through Afternoon On 3's Between The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea theme this week, as she continues to introduce some of the great music inspired by the seafaring and the satanic.


Louise's selection today starts with a work inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, as well as poets Andrew Marvell and Edmund Spenser.


Richard Rodney Bennett's Sea Change is a flowing, programmatic work for choir (performed here by the BBC Symphony Chorus). It is followed by a celebrated Berlioz work – a "dramatic legend" inspired by Faust and one of the finest and probably the most personal of the countless Faust settings that the 19th century spawned.


Louise closes the programme with Franz Liszt's Totentanz, a paraphrase for piano and orchestra on the Gregorian plainchant melody Dies Irae.


Presenter/Louise Fryer, Producer/Simon Jordan

Performance On 3 – Britten Sinfonia
Tuesday 1 July
7.00-8.45pm BBC RADIO 3

Violinist-turned-conductor Thomas Zehetmair joins the Britten Sinfonia and violinist Carolin Widmann for a performance which includes the world première of Festival associate director John Woolrich's Violin Concerto. Woolrich is one of Britain's most interesting and quirky composers, and this première, in the second of three concerts from the Aldeburgh Festival for Performance On 3, is a major event.


Also featured in this concert are two composers close to Zehetmair's heart: Schumann and Schubert. Webern's exquisite, understated orchestrations of Schubert songs are complemented by Britten's charming orchestral accompaniment to The Trout, with burbling clarinets and whispering strings. Schumann's symphony No. 3, the Rhenish, celebrating the glorious Rhineland, unusually features five movements.

The Essay – Doctoring Philosophy Ep 2/4
Monday 30 June to Thursday 3 July
11.00-11.15pm BBC RADIO 3

Philosopher Jonathan Wolff continues to mark the 60th anniversary of the NHS with the second of four essays exploring and questioning the philosophical beliefs which led to its foundation.


From the perspective of political philosophy, the foundation of the NHS represented an enormous shift in values: from private contract and charity to universal entitlement. In tonight's Essay, Jonathan explores the consequences of that change, including fears that a new culture of entitlement might undermine traditional values of self-help and self-sufficiency.

BBC RADIO 4 Tuesday 1 July 2008
The NHS At 60 – The Cost Of Health Ep 1/4
Tuesday 1 July
9.00-9.45am BBC RADIO 4

To mark the 60th anniversary of the creation of the NHS, BBC Health Correspondent Branwen Jeffreys presents four debates for BBC Radio 4. Each week, she and a panel of guests look at some of the funding dilemmas that face the NHS and analyse how, in each case, the cost of health is balanced against quality of care and the values of the NHS.


Each week, two expert advocates marshal supporting evidence using case studies and data to argue their position. In an ideal world, both would get the funding and research they want but, of course, NHS money is finite. In the studio, a business person and a politician are forced to reconcile principle with pragmatism and make some tough choices between deserving cases.


Niall Dickson of the King's Fund is on hand to provide the context for these important choices and explain how decisions are actually made within the NHS.


The first programme looks at which treatments the NHS should fund – dementia versus mental wellbeing.


These two services are always pressed when budgets are tight – yet both are areas of increasing importance which seldom get the attention they deserve. The burden on families and carers of dementia sufferers is intense and, in the case of mental health, the cost to society is huge. On the one hand, Alzheimer's patients and their families are challenging NICE's (the National Institute for Clinical Excellence) rulings about drug treatments in court; on the other, mental health advocates are calling on greater provision of effective but costly talking therapies over traditional drug treatments. Who gets priority?

The Tiger Who Came To Tea
Tuesday 1 July
11.30am-12.00noon BBC RADIO 4

One afternoon, Judith Kerr tried to entertain her bored three-year-old with a story about a tiger coming to their home for tea.


Her children repeatedly demanded to hear the story again and it eventually became Judith's first children's book – The Tiger Who Came To Tea – now one of the best-selling books of all time.


To mark the 40th anniversary of its publication, Ian Sansom meets Judith at home in London, with her cat, Katinka.


The programme speaks to children, parents and grandparents to find out what makes the book such an enduring success. Ian talks to Judith about whether her own childhood experiences of escaping from the Holocaust informed the dark edges of the book.

The Lost Beatles Interview
Tuesday 1 July
1.30-2.00pm BBC RADIO 4

Paul McCartney and John Lennon
Paul McCartney and John

The Lost Beatles interview was found in a rusty film can after languishing in a damp garage in South London for over 30 years.


Recorded in April 1964, experts say it's the earliest surviving interview in which Lennon and McCartney talk about how they met and discuss the song-writing process. It was part of a regional television programme broadcast in Scotland but has never been seen or heard in the rest of the UK.


The Lost Beatles Interview is presented by Sixties superstar Helen Shapiro, whom the Beatles supported just a year before this unique interview was recorded.

BBC WORLD SERVICE Tuesday 1 July 2008
World Book Club – David Lodge
Tuesday 1 July
9.30-10.00am BBC WORLD SERVICE

Harriett Gilbert talks to David Lodge about his 1988 novel Nice Work in World Book Club, a unique radio programme that brings readers from around the world together with their favourite writers. Every month, Harriett invites a best-selling author to talk about the chosen work, give a reading from it, then throw themselves open to questions and feedback from a studio audience and readers worldwide.


Nice Work, which won the Sunday Express Book of the Year Award and was short-listed for the Booker Prize in 1988, is a comedy about society and class misunderstandings. The plot tells of a relationship that develops between an unlikely couple, Vic Wilcox, manager of a local engineering firm, and a feminist English lecturer, Dr Robyn Penrose, whose specialist subjects include the industrial novel and women's writing. The story is set in Rummidge, a grey, dismal, fictional Birmingham.


David Lodge, who is also a successful playwright, adapted Nice Work as a four-part TV serial for the BBC. It was broadcast in 1989 and won the Royal Television Society Award for Best Drama Serial.


Since its launch in 2002, World Book Club has hosted Nobel laureates Wole Soyinka, Orhan Pamuk, VS Naipaul and Doris Lessing, as well as several Booker Prize winners including Margaret Atwood, Kazuo Ishiguro and Salman Rushdie.
