Lewis Carroll - Alice through the Looking Glass

Alice's fantastical story collides with Radio 4, as she crashes a giant game of chess.

4 Extra Debut. Alice's fantastical story collides with Radio 4, as she crashes a giant game of chess. With Lauren Mote and Julian Rhind-Tutt.

By Lewis Carroll, dramatised by Stephen Wyatt It's mid-winter, the snow is falling against the window, and Alice is learning how to play chess but then, on a whim, she goes to the mirror and pretends her black kitten is the Red Queen and suddenly everything changes ...

With Jim Al-Khalili, Roger McGough, Jenni Murray, Jane Garvey, Eric Robson, Pippa Greenwood, Peter Donaldson, Kirsty Young, Andrew Marr, Evan Davies, Garry Richardson & Melvyn Bragg.

This dramatisation brings out the intellectual spine of Lewis Carroll's classic story - while losing none of the fun.

When Alice crashes through the looking glass she enters a world set out like a giant chess board and discovers science, maths, poetry, riddles, and wordplay. It is instantly entertaining and tantalizingly offers the listener more than meets the ear.

In this fast-moving and surrealist world, Alice has to decode the bizarre rules of the mirror-world. If Alice can get to The Eighth Square she will be Queen. Lewis Carroll is ever present. He sets out the chess game for Alice, teasing the listener into having an overview of his story and exploring the ideas within it.

On her chess journey Alice will meet the Red & White Queen, Humpty Dumpty, Tweedledee and Tweedledum (who might be more familiar than the listener can possibly imagine) and the Red & White Knights. But there's a twist here - Alice will also discover that Radio 4 can be found on the other side of the glass.

Published for Christmas 1871 this story is the mirror image of Alice In Wonderland: the characters are chess pieces instead of cards. It is Winter rather than Summer and time runs backwards. Tim Burton's film was 'inspired' by Lewis Carroll's books but it wasn't Lewis Carroll's book. This is a chance for the Radio 4 listeners to discover the real thing and show them why this classic appeals to philosophers, linguists and chess fans, prefaced Modernism, has provoked a wealth of academic study, and in doing so remind them of the bits they loved in childhood (and the bits they've forgotten).

Mathematician Carroll, prefaced his book with a chess problem. It is claimed the game is a part of a sequence of numbers - that Alice's journey is code - that Carroll was flirting with numerology and esotericism. It is intriguing because Carroll loved number games and puzzles. He was frighteningly clever. He regularly invented things. You could say he was the Mark Zuckerberg of his time.

Sally Phillips discusses comedy acting, and Toby Jones talks about communal living.

Sally Phillips talks about comedy acting, Toby Jones discusses communal living, and Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich talk about baking, plus extreme inventing with Colin Furze.

Writer and actress Sally Phillips first appeared regularly on our screens in female comedy series Smack the Pony. Roles in Alan Partridge and Bridget Jones soon followed and since then she's carved out a niche as one of the UK's top comedy actors - appearing in Rescue Me, Parents, Skins and Jam and Jerusalem in the UK and Green Wing, Veep and Parents across the pond. On Radio 4 she's Claire in the Community, she's popularised the phrase "bear with..." as posh girl Tilly in TV sitcom Miranda and wrote film The Decoy Bride starring David Tennant. She joins us fresh from wrapping on Austen/ Zombie mash up: 'Pride, Prejudice and Zombies'.

Colin Furze lives in Stamford, Lincolnshire where he was born. A former plumber, he now works as an inventor creating weird and wonderful inventions such as a flamethrower scooter and the world's fastest mobility scooter, for which he set a new world record.

Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich met twelve years ago in an Italian restaurant in Israel. They moved to the UK and worked at Oxo Tower, J Sheekey and Ottolenghi, before setting up their own restaurant, Honey & Co, serving their version of middle eastern food.

Toby Jones is the author of three novels and three works of non fiction including 'The Dark Heart of Italy'. Six years ago he and his wife decided to start an experiment in communal living in Somerset. They bought a house in Windsor Hill Wood, and set about finding guests to create what has become a successful and well known refuge for those needing respite from their ordinary lives.

Ex Jackson 5 member and guitarist Tito Jackson chooses his inheritance tracks. He inherited

Papa's Got a Brand New Bag by James Brown and would pass on Thank You by Sly & The Family Stone.

Two listeners who were caught up in the 7/7 bombings in London in 2005 say special thank yous to two guardian angels.

And Charles Collingwood aka Brian from The Archers tells us about his Saturday passion for cricket.

Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich's The Baking Book

and

A Place of Refuge by Tobias Jones

are out now.
