Here is Gary Brown´s BBC Radio 4 full-cast comedy dramatisation about artist Eric Gill´s clash with the BBC over his famous sculpture of Prospero and Ariel. It stars Anton Lesser as Eric Gill and Tim McInnerny as Sir John Reith, the first Director General of the Corporation, and was originally broadcast in the Afternoon Play slot on Wednesday 9 June 2010. Inspired by real events, the play charts a clash between the BBC´s governors and the artist over the propriety of the sculpture´s appearance. Gill became quite a celebrity as he carved the statue in situ on scaffolding in front of Broadcasting House. In his trademark smock and beret, he drew the attention of the tabloid papers and became known as the ‘Married Monk’. The play imagines conversations between Sir John and the artist as he passes him on his way into Broadcasting House each morning. Framed with a period newsreel-style commentary, the comedy playfully deals with the perennial tension between the Establishment and the Artist. The strange and mysterious Gill contrasts with the authoritarian but often troubled figure of Reith, but in the end the sculpture focuses their thoughts about the role of Art in the life of mankind. While this is a comedy, the play touches a little on the well-documented darker side of both men´s nature, and offers an insight into one of the more celebrated events of early BBC history. The cast is completed by Jon Glover as the Newsreel Reporter, David Seddon as Charlie, Stephen Darcy as Father Sean, Tina Gray as Lady Snowden, and Alison Pettitt as the Nanny. Written by Gary Brown and directed by Peter Leslie Wild. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jon Glover, David Seddon, Stephen Darcy, Tina Gray, Alison Pettitt.

Each week, more than three million listeners tune into Wait Wait... Don´t Tell Me! to test their knowledge of the week´s news. In the popular ´´Not My Job´´ segment, a celebrity guest must answer three questions on a topic totally outside his or her area of expertise. The topic seems random but is thoughtfully skewed. Because Henry Winkler played Fonzie on Happy Days, host Peter Sagal asks him about Ponzi schemes. For indie rock singer Neko Case, the questions are about Necco Wafers. Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. holds the record for most consecutive games played; the Wait Wait team pitches him stumpers about sports´ real streakers - those without clothes. Jane Goodall, who studies wild chimpanzees, is met with questions about actor Nicolas Cage. And so on. Twisted and tricky, it´s all in good fun for panelists, celebrities, and especially the audience.

Einzigartiges Filmdokument eines der bedeutendsten und originellsten Denker des 20. Jahrhunderts: Siebeneinhalb Stunden Filmgespräch mit dem französischen Philosophen und Rhizomatiker Gilles Deleuze, der für seine ehemalige Studentin und Freundin Claire Parnet 1988 erstmals die hartnäckige Weigerung aufgibt, im Fernsehen aufzutreten unter der Bedingung, das Material erst posthum auszustrahlen. Dass Deleuze einige Monate vor seinem krankheitsbedingten Freitod 1995 der Ausstrahlung in einzelnen Folgen dennoch zustimmt, ändert nichts an der ursprünglichen Versuchsanordnung dieses Ausnahmedokuments: Mit gelassener Heiterkeit, viel Charme und ohne jedes Pathos nimmt das überaus lebendige Gespenst des Philosophen die heterogenen Impulse auf, die von Parnets alphabetischer Begriffsauswahl von A wie Animal/Tier bis Z wie ZickZack ausgehen, und folgt ihnen freimütig. Von Spinoza zu Minnelli, von der Literatur zum Tennis, von der Zecke zur Kultur: Bestand für Deleuze die Aufgabe der Philosophie erklärtermaßen darin, »Begriffspersonen« zu erschaffen, so kündet dieses ABC von deren weit verzweigtem Eigen-Leben.Dieser seltene Glücksfall eines gelungenen TV-Interviews, noch dazu mit einem wahren Idol der französischen Postmoderne mit dem Mann also, dessen »Sprechgesang« die Studenten in Scharen in die Vorlesungen strömen ließ, und dessen Denken nach 68 auch weit über den akademischen Bereich hinausstrahlte war in Frankreich auch auf Video und DVD ein voller Erfolg.
