In Paris on 11 September 1827, the French composer
Hector Berlioz fell head over heels in love with an actress, an Irish girl called Harriet Smithson. For years she avoided him, but the intensity of his infatuation and the twists and turns of their relationship became inextricably entangled with a symphony he was to compose.

Fantastic Symphony is one of the most extraordinary and original compositions ever written.

5: Monsignor Bruce Kent
'If anyone had asked me in the early days, I'm sure I would have said CND was a bunch of Communists.....'
When Bruce Kent first became a priest, his concerns were spiritual and pastoral, but a trip to Biafra in the middle of the Nigerian civil war opened his eyes to the political implications of the Gospel. What he saw made him a pacifist and set him on the path which led to his becoming General Secretary of the very organisation he had scorned.
For the first time he talks personally about the priesthood - why he joined, why he remains and how his concept of priesthood has changed.

The First 25 Years
A quarter of a century ago this week Ronnie Scott launched what is still today London's only regular late night jazz venue. Neither he, nor the club's manager Pete King , had a master plan for the long-term future success of the club. 'We just started in a small place in Gerrard Street; it was just a place for us to play - local guys - me in particular! No one else would book us!'
In the company of John Junkin Ronnie looks back over the years and recalls anecdotes involving some of the personalities who have become legends in the club's unique reputation. Also included, from BBC archives, are performances at the club from Oscar Peterson , Sonny RoUins Sarah Vaughan , Dizzy Gillespie Kenny Clarke -
