Well, I’m going to try and start posting these again. There’s a special that was on Radio 4 on Thursday about Tahrir Square, and it’s well worth listening to. Anyhow, these are all from Thursday.
From Our Own Correspondant
This is always worth a listen, but this week’s programme features a contribution from Cairo on the changes in the secret police, and the way power has shifted to the people. Also has sections on the Basque region, Uganda, and bowling in Ireland.
The Priest, The Badger and the Little Green Men
Rev Lionel Fanthorpe – born in the 1930s, priest, martial arts instructor, weight training instructor, and writer of 250 science fiction books under various pen names.
This is the special from one of the BBC’s Egyptian born members of staff. Some very interesting interviews with people involved with the protests, and how it grew.
Scientists Of The Subprime
The parallels between interconnectedness in organic structures and the financial sector.
It’s Your Round
New quiz show hosted by Angus Deayton. Each panellist brings their own round along for people to play. Quite fun from the first one. Includes the round “Come To Romford”.
