Don't miss ...

Couldn't find a thread for spreading the word about generally interesting-looking stuff coming up on the radio or TV, so here's one. (Mods - if I'm wrong about this, you know what to do!)

 

Don't miss Archive on Four on R4 tonight at 8pm (shortened repeat Monday afternoon, or of course iplayer for 7 days). This week it's about Richard Feynman, Nobel physics laureate, safecracker, bongo player and all round splendid human being. If you know about him, it'll be nice to hear some of it again, if not, pick up on a really lovely guy.

Thanks Fjool, probably a better place for it.

 

He's Jewish.

He's dead, which is probably more important to him at this moment.

 

Also, tonite on R3 6.45 - 11pm, Goethe's Faust. That'll test your endurance. You must admit, they don't do things by halves at R3. Nine solid days of non-stop Bach a few Christmases ago, an entire Wagner Ring cycle in a day, and now four hours or so of Goethe. Just hope they remember today is Talk Like a Pirate day, or all that effort will have been wasted. :D

 

Perhaps one of those Radio 3 producers who like to relax scanning through Shetlink might care to consider a performance of Robert Wilson's "Ka Mountain and Gardenia Terrace; a Story about Some People Changing", which ran continuously for seven days and nights at the 1972 Shiraz festival in Iran. I'm afraid I'm holding out for a co-production with BBC2 TV on that one, though - doing the soundtrack only would be cheating.

As a child I found the transcripts from his sessions amazing, well worth a listen, had thought it was 2.15pm yesterday though, plan to catch up with radio later on tonight.

How to make science fun, forget pratchett, feynman actually makes things make sense for us noneducated oinks.
