Radio

Germany über alles

Radio: FROM Goethe to sausages, Germany: Memories of a nation (Radio 4) is on an epic journey to uncover the history and myths that make up the German psyche

Cold-call Pope

Radio: ONE of the most popular comic articles doing the rounds of Italian journalists recently has been "Top-ten tips for when the Pope phones."

First time round

Radio: IF YOU want to please a Spanish patron, Michelangelo is reported to have said, show him plenty of blood and nails. And the Iberian penchant for the melodramatic can, according to Stephen Johnson in The Essay, equally be detected in the music of the time

Ants à la carte

Radio: ON RADIO 4, on More or Less, there was a feature on ants. The question was: if you weighed all the ants in existence, would they be heavier than the total weight of humanity

Paternal judgement

Radio: Anybody who still needs reassurance that Chris Evans has made the transition from cocky TV presenter to charming Radio 2 star should listen to his interview on Saturday Live about the joys of reading to your children

Methodism at work

Radio:  IT IS part of the Church in England; but could never be the Church of England. This judgement on the state of Methodism and its relationship to the Establishment came at the end of a typically acerbic critique by Quentin Letts: What's the Point of . . . The Methodists?

Out of the ordinary

Radio: As a means of describing human behaviour, the word "normal" has been in the English language only since the early 19th century. The current terminology is "neurotypical"; and it was in celebration of neurodiversity that Bridget Kendall gathered her guests for last week's The Forum

 

Plain and simple

Radio: If the Church of England were asked to come up with a format for a radio programme, it might come up with Agree to Differ (Radio 4, Wednesday of last week), "a new way to understand a controversial issue", the blurb says

Big Society bungles

Radio: MANY Church Times readers will want to get their "I told you so" T-shirts out of the wardrobe after hearing The Report last week. The subject was the Big Society: the big idea deployed in 2010 to give some semblance of vision to the makeshift reality of coalition

Hocus-pocus

Radio: Fry's English Delight (Radio 4, Monday of last week) offered a perfect match of content and presentation

Disappointing dish

Radio: WHETHER it is to explain why we like to get together of a weekday evening and sing in choirs, or why we like to drink ourselves silly of a weekend, it seems that, nowadays, people are looking to evolutionary biology as the source of all wisdom.
