Duration:
1 hour, 45 minutes
First broadcast:
Thursday 19 December 2013

Sean Rafferty with live music from Radio 3 New Generation Artists soprano Ruby Hughes and tenor Robin Tritschler. Live music also comes courtesy of cellist Mats Lindström and pianist Henrik Måwe, who'll tell us about the Swedish tradition of 'lillejulafton', or 'Little Christmas Eve', and their concert at Cadogan Hall this week - Christmas From Sweden.

Plus, BBC Arts Editor Will Gompertz has nearly finished writing his special In Tune Christmas Cards which have been looking throughout the week at 5 iconic pieces of Christmas art. Today it's Andy Warhol's graphic Christmas cards of the late 1950s, images which paved the way for him to become the father of pop art.

Main headlines are at 5pm and 6pm.
