6MMartin Freeman20140416

Mark is joined by actor Martin Freeman, who talks about his latest television project, Fargo.

Plus, as part of 6 Music Celebrates Ireland week, Mark plays some of his favourite Irish tunes. He tells us why he's chosen to play these particular tracks and the history behind the songs themselves.

One of these tracks is Van Morrison's Coney Island. 'This is taken from his stunning 1989 Avalon Sunset album. Some people found the orchestrations a bit lush but the beauty of the strings here is wonderfully complemented by Van's thick Ulster accent.

Another track is The Auld Triangle, by Bert Jansch. He says, ''This was written by Dominic Behan, brother of Brendan Behan and it appears in his celebrated 1954 play 'The Quare Fellow'. At least, that's one theory. Dominic Behan never credited himself as composer suggesting it might be a traditional old prison song or somesuch'.

And finally, The Dubliners - The Travelling People. 'This is actually written by an Englishman - the celebrated Salfordian Ewan MacColl. But The Dubliners made this their own - in particular the way it was sung so indelibly by the late Luke Kelly'.

6MMary Beard20160331

A History of Ancient Rome'. It co-indices with her new BBC Two series 'Meet the Romans with Mary Beard' which starts in April.

The series and book chart the journey of Rome from a small village to a European superpower.
