Standing (Dennis Waterman) calls Strickland’s bluff
Standing (Dennis Waterman)
calls Strickland’s bluff

Crack sleuthing team Halford, Lane, Pullman and Standing investigate an arson attack on an Eighties music station which resulted in the death of controversial DJ Johnny Deacon, as the crime drama continues. The station's media mogul owner, Sir Max Wyatt, who was already under public scrutiny for ripping off the company employee's pension fund, committed suicide shortly afterwards. Despite suggestions of an insurance scam, the original investigation drew a blank.


When "super geek" and life president of DJ Johnny Deacon's fan club Jeremy Kirkham campaigns for the case to be reopened, the UCOS team not only gains a murder inquiry but Lane also gains a new friend. It is a meeting of minds when Jeremy shows Lane his collection of Deacon's work – including his distressing last broadcast on the night of the fire.


Deacon's producer, DJ Graham Madeley, escaped the fire. But, with his trophy wife, Sarah, and his office now a shrine to his dead colleague, Madeley's loyalty to Deacon seems at odds with how others viewed their relationship.


With Halford still missing, the team is under pressure not only to deliver on the case, but also to cover Halford's prolonged absence. Strickland is keen to find a permanent replacement for Jack, but Pullman and Standing call his bluff, threatening to quit rather than work with someone new on the team.


James Bolam plays Jack Halford, Alun Armstrong plays Brian Lane, Amanda Redman plays Detective Superintendent Sandra Pullman, Dennis Waterman plays Gerry Standing, Reece Shearsmith plays Jeremy Kirkham, Danny Webb plays Graham Madeley, Kellie Bright plays Sarah Madeley and Anthony Calf plays DAC Strickland.

Ching-He Huang, the new star of Chinese cooking, continues her mission to bring fresh, easy and healthy Chinese food to the UK.


She travels to the far north of Scotland in search of the finest seafood for her series dedicated to fresh, healthy and easy-to-prepare Chinese food.


Ching cooks steamed whole sea bass in hot beer with a ginger-lime sauce before setting off to Ullapool on the far north-west coast of Scotland to find some of the best langoustine in the country.


After joining the fishing boats, Ching prepares a mouth-watering langoustine and samphire stir fry before heading even further north to one of the most remote fishing ports in Scotland – the tiny village of Kinlochbervie.


The nearest Chinese takeaway is 60 miles away from Kinlochbervie and the nearest supermarket is a 120-mile round trip. But this port on Scotland's north-west coast boasts some of the finest fresh seafood in the whole of the UK.


Using locally sourced ingredients, Ching prepares black bean-steamed scallops with noodles and monkfish with sesame soy sauce and chilli crab for the local fishing community. She also serves up gong bao haddock goujons served with roast sweet chilli potato chips – her own version of fish and chips.




BBC FOUR Monday 21 July 2008
Proms On Four

Monday 21 July
7.30-9.30pm BBC FOUR
Press pack

BBC Four continues its regular Sunday and Monday night broadcasts of the BBC Proms with a live concert celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of French composer Olivier Messiaen. His magnificent memorial to the dead of two world wars, the monumental Et Exspecto Resurrectionem Mortuorum, features in the first half of the concert, played by the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France under its Chief Conductor, Myung-Whun Chung. Chung is a leading interpreter of Messiaen's music, and the composer himself dedicated his Concert à Quatre to him.


Organist Olivier Latry opens the concert with Messiaen's solo work, L'Ascension, on the massive Royal Albert Hall organ, the largest instrument in the country, with 9,999 pipes and 147 stops. The organ was the biggest, most ambitious and expensive instrument in the world when it was created in 1871, costing more than four per cent of the entire budget for the construction of the Hall.


The historic Father Willis organ has been played by such greats as Marcel Dupré, Anton Bruckner and Camille Saint-Saëns, whose own exuberant and popular Organ Symphony completes tonight's concert.


Presenter Charles Hazlewood is joined by Gillian Moore, Head of Contemporary Culture at the Southbank Centre, and by composer Stevie Wishart.


Digital viewers can press the Red button on their remote for programme notes during the performance.
