The novelist Salman Rushdie has always dreamed large. He’s written stories about how nations come into being; how new ideas come into the world and how the modern world connects to the ancient. Midnight’s Children, his second novel, won the Booker Prize in 1981, when Rushdie was in his early 30s. But not many Americans had heard of Rushdie until Valentine´s Day, 1989, when the dying Ayatollah Khomeni of Iran issued the infamous fatwa calling for Rushdie’s head, for the supposedly blasphemous novel The Satanic Verses. Rushdie spent most of the next decade in hiding, accompanied by armed British agents. He’s now published his account of that stranger-than-fiction time: Joseph Anton: A Memoir. Then, around 1961, Andy Warhol started painting cans of Campbell´s soup, in all 32 varieties. He liked to tell people that his mother made him Campbell´s soup and that´s why he painted it. The soup cans are probably the most recognizable images in American art, and Warhol intended it that way. He borrowed the Campbell´s brand fame to help make his own; he appeared in Time in 1962 as part of the Pop revolution that was remaking art — destroying the serious, sublime aspirations of artists like Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko. Warhol was doing Campbell´s soup at the same time he was painting Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor. In his art, Campbell´s was a ´´star´´ like a movie pinup. But as obvious as they look, the paintings are still mysterious today: Why paint something you can buy in a grocery store? What did Warhol mean? Studio 360´s David Krasnow looked for answers.

It´s often assumed that it was Dad´s Army that made John Le Mesurier and Arthur Lowe well known. This is not so. Arthur Lowe had come to national attention, after a long apprenticeship in theatre, as the uptight church warden Mr Swindley in Coronation Street. John had made many films and found success as the diffident Colonel in the popular sitcom George And The Dragon. But it was Dad´s Army, late in their lives, that brought them fame, fortune, and the oddest of friendships. This comedy drama by Roy Smiles stars Anton Lesser and Robert Daws. Produced by Liz Anstee. 1. Language: English. Narrator: AudioGO Ltd. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bbcw/006725/bk_bbcw_006725_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Northern Ireland was a very dark place in the 1980s. A hunger strike was looming, street violence and tit for tat murders were an everyday occurrence, but in a small corner of West Belfast something extraordinary was happening. In a factory in Dunmurry a unique new sports car was being built, a DMC 12, a style icon for the late 20th century. For 2 years John DeLorean brought hope to communities flattened by the Troubles in Northern Ireland. This is the story of that two year dream as seen through the eyes of key employees - including a union representative, an assembly line worker and a supervisor. Over 9,000 DMCs were produced during this period, cars which today still retain their cult status. The workforce put their heart and souls into this car plant believing that this was going to be the start of a better future, and that they too could ´live the dream. 1. Language: English.

A BBC Radio 4 fictionalised account of the interrogation of P. G. Wodehouse (Tim McInnerny) by MI5 during World War II. How to Be an Internee with No Previous Experience was originally broadcast as the ´Afternoon Play´ on 15 December 2010. In 1944, P.G. Wodehouse, the creator of ´Jeeves and Wooster´, was questioned by MI5 after broadcasting to America from a German internment camp. One of the interrogators was an up-and-coming journalist called Malcolm Muggeridge. The other was Major E.J.P. Cussen, who later became a high court judge. The stakes were high: one of Britain´s best loved authors was facing the possibility of the death penalty. With Tim McInnerny as Wodehouse and Alex Jennings as Muggeridge. Also starring Anton Lesser, Stephen Critchlow, and Gunnar Cauthery. Produced and directed by Peter Leslie Wild. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim McInnerny, Alex Jennings.
