Blasphemy And The Governor Of Punjab20121028

A documentary drama set in Pakistan about the assassination of the Governor of Punjab.

On 4 January 2011, self-made millionaire businessman and governor of Punjab Salmaan Taseer, was gunned down in a parking lot of a popular Islamabad market. He had been leading a campaign to amend Pakistan's blasphemy laws, after an illiterate 45-year-old Christian woman, Asia Bibi, from a village in his district had been sentenced to death for blasphemy.

Within hours of his death, a Facebook fan page for the assassin Mumtaz Qadri had over 2000 members, before site administrators shut it down. When Qadri was transferred to jail, he was garlanded with roses by a crowd of lawyers offering to take on his case for free. President Asif Ali Zardari, an old friend of Taseer's, didn't go to the funeral for fear of inflaming public opinion. Leaders of state-funded mosques refused to say funeral prayers for the slain governor. The Interior Minister even gave an impromptu press conference announcing that he to would kill any blasphemer "with his own hands".

Using his extensive contacts in Pakistan, presenter Owen Bennett-Jones has interviewed Taseer's family and friends and the family of the assassin. He has also secured access to court documents including the killer's confession.

The programme includes both interview material and dramatic reconstructions.

On The Edge Of The Earth2011031920110320

In September 2010 a 100-year old sailing boat, the Noorderlicht, set sail for the Arctic as part of the Cape Farewell project.

On board was the award-winning Russian playwright, Mikhail Durnenkov.

He was one of a number of artists and scientists who, for three weeks, lived and worked on the ship, exploring and debating climate change.

BBC World Service linked to Mikhail throughout the voyage and, on his return, he wrote On the Edge of the Earth, a play inspired by his experiences there.

This is the first World Drama to be written in the Arctic (in 2005, Ian Mcewan was one of the artists who took part in the Cape Farewell project, it inspired him to write the novel Solar).

Starring, Tom Goodman-Hill, Indira Varma, Luke Treadaway, Nicholas Farrell, Ewan Bailey, Carl Prekopp, Helen Longworth, Gerard McDermott, Rachel Davies and Joanna Monro.

Director: Rosalynd Ward

The Ballad Of Africa2010100920101010

is a compelling and thought-provoking examination of the highs and lows of the continent's post-independence history through the eyes of Africans.

In a specially commissioned programme marking the 50th anniversary of the independence of many African countries, this self-narrating Ballad explores through words and music issues that have dominated African mindsets for the past half-century.

These include post-colonial development and self-rule, building an African future based on economic growth and political stability; overcoming apartheid, rebuilding after genocide and aiming for self-sufficiency.

But one theme running throughout the programme is of independence and freedom, with some contributors wondering whether Africa really IS free, despite half a century of independence.

Music is the irrepressible common bond, the heartbeat that unites all African nations, and The Ballad of Africa offers real insight into their thinking, and their hopes and aspirations for the future.

The music comes from outspoken Malian singers Ali Farka Toure and Oumou Sangare and Benin's Angelique Kidjo with specially commissioned performances by Cameroonian singer and guitarist Muntu Valdo and Rwandan inanga player Sophie Nzayisanga.

Throughout the Ballad, Africans discuss their lives, history and thoughts on the future despite the negative chapters in the continent's recent history.

The Ballad considers Africa's progress since independence from European powers, and what resources the continent needs to flourish for the next fifty years.

In a continent rich with minerals and astonishing human resources, one speaker sums up Africa's post-colonial history of coups, natural disasters and bad leaders as "a struggle in paradise" but stresses that Africa needs to become stable to be a driving force for the world.

The Fisherman20131020

The winner of English as a first language category, Janet Morrison's play, The Fisherman, was described by the judges as "an ambitious story, which came to life instantly - a real thriller".

In a sleepy Jamaican fishing village, Grandma and Grandpa find themselves unexpectedly having to bring up their teenage grandchildren, Jevaughan and Latoya, after their only daughter has left the island. The teenagers feel out of place in their new quiet surroundings, but whilst Jevaughan is more or less resigned to his fate, his wilder sister Latoya has a plan to escape. Her rebellion, however, is to trigger a series of horrifying events, as she goes missing, leaving her family to search for her. Their lives become embroiled in the growing sex trade industry which has engulfed the northeast coast of the island - a blot on the district which, until now, most people have tried to ignore. As the village fishermen rise to the occasion in an effort to protect their community, it becomes clear that not everyone can be trusted. The results of their attempt are to change the teenagers - and the village - forever.

With Petra Letang as Latoya, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett as Jevaughn, Angela Wynter as Grandma, Ram John Holder as Grandpa, Don Gilet as Stanley and Nina Sosanya as Dahlia.

The Porlock Poisoner2011081320110814

Five global do-gooders descend upon the tranquil village of Porlock Weir in Somerset to.

Miriam Margolyes, Fenella Woolgar and Kevin Eldon star in The Porlock Poisoner by the award-winning playwright Marcy Kahan - a comedy whodunnit in which five global do-gooders - a genetic engineer, a feminist activist, an environmental analyst, an economics guru and a world poverty campaigner - descend upon the tranquil harbour village of Porlock Weir in Somerset to compete for a £25m grant.

But during a visit to the smallest parish church in England, one of the group suffers a gruesome fate - and a weekend dedicated to world affairs turns into a murder mystery.

Fortunately there is a gifted amateur detective present: Tina Paganini, a statuesque blonde with a photographic memory, a misleadingly air-headed manner and the wrong shoes for an English Country Walk.
