Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan
In the final programme in a season of classical music from the Indian sub-continent, Krishnan Gurumurthy introduces the king of qawwali,
Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. Qawwali is Islamic devotional music which originated in Persia and spread eastwards. It celebrates Allah and the Prophet Mohammed and is renowned for its spontaneity and forceful rhythms, drawing easy comparison with jazz.
The foremost exponent of qawwali is Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, from Faisalabad in Pakistan, whose family has passed on and developed the tradition over six centuries.
In this programme Nusrat performs traditional qawwalis as well as songs from his latest repertoire which involves the use of synthesizers. Producer BISH MEHAY

Sons of the Revolution Written and narrated by Edward Behr.
Emperors have always had absolute power. The new communist leaders and latter-day Emperors,
Mao Tse-tung and Deng Xiaoping are no exception. The political problems in 1989 can be traced back to the very founding of their New China, 40 years ago next month.
Sons of the Revolution follows this remarkable period through the eyes of four people; an Englishman committed to Mao, an ex-ambassador to Peking, a Chinese writer, and a former Red Guard who was involved in brutal killings.
They all talk openly and frankly about the great achievements as well as the vicious repressions which created the Red Dynasty. Cameraman JOHN BECK
