Curious Incident of the Hobbs in the Daytime

3 hours
First broadcast:
Saturday 06 April 2013

Our favourite playwright, the award-winning Simon Stephens, delivers this morning's Three Minute Epiphany. He speaks on how he adapted the nation's favourite book - The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon - for the National Theatre stage. He had a little help from the Smiths and Sigur Ros.

That is the meat in Mary Anne's sandwich this morning. The relish and bread and side-servings are made up of the best new music and classic reggae, electronica, soul, hip hop and pop.
