Halle Orchestra
In a concert live from the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester, Mark Elder and the Halle Orchestra perform two orchestral works that transformed the classical musical landscape of their day - Webern's five masterly exercises in economy and intensity, and Beethoven's miraculous re-invention of the symphony. They are joined by Viktoria Mullova for a performance of one of the great romantic violin concertos.

8.25 Twenty Minutes: A Microphone for the People - the Charles Parker Archive
Charles Parker 's Radio Ballads, broadcast 1958-64, featured the voices of people who had not been heard before - including miners, fishermen, boxers, road builders and gypsies. But Parker's vast archive of tapes, papers and scripts reveals as much about this pioneering radio producer, oral historian and political activist as it does about the people he interviewed. Sean Street talks to Gillian Reynolds about Parker's continuing influence, to Paul Long about his legacy to social history, and to Dave Rogers about the community theatre project Banner Theatre, which Parker helped set up 30 years ago. And Sian Roberts talks about the project to digitise Parker's vast archive, which is the subject of a conference in Birmingham tomorrow.
