One hundred feet above Kensington High Street in London is a fantastic garden, remarkable for its very existence. Begun in 1938 on top of what was then the Derry and Toms department store, the garden has three different themes: Spanish, with its court of fountains and formal design; the red brick Tudor garden; and the English garden containing woodland, stream and ducks.

Big Eli McDonaugh:
Esa-Pekka Salonen brings his gifts as a conductor of 20th century music to this live concert from the Royal Albert Hall , which includes a world premiere in the first half. Latvian-born GidonKremer is the soloist in Graal Theatre, a new violin concerto composed for him by Finnish composer Kaija Saariaho.
In this work, Saariaho forsakes electronics for a more traditional concerto form in which the violin interacts with the orchestra. "This is certainly a difficult piece to play but Gidon is a strong artist," says Saariaho.
The concert opens with Carl Nielsen 's He/ios overture. In the second half, Karol Szymanowski 's
Stabat mater is followed by the erotic Poem of Ecstasy by Alexander Skriabin. With the BBC Symphony
Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Chorus and soloists Judith Howarth (soprano), Randi Stene (mezzo-soprano) and Jason Howard (baritone), Introduced by Michael Berkeley who, in the interval, looks at new research into how and why we are moved by certain music. Director Barrie Gavin ; Executive producer

Weekenders. What is the weekend country cottage - a status symbol, a bolt hole, a nightmare?
As tired city dwellers set off in search of the peace and quiet of the country
Modern Times ponders the joys, pains and absurdities of the weekend cottage.
Seven contrasting families describe theiron-off love affairs with their rural retreats, a place to which they escape every Friday night in the hope that they will have two days of the quiet life. For some, the weekly escape is a nightmare of planning, while forteenagers the country is a place lacking in fun.
One couple found their country caravan such a relief that they didn't tell theirteenage sons where it was for fouryears. And there's businessman Ivan, forwhom the weekend means virtually a change of personality. He trades his Ferrari for a Morris Minor, changes his name to Ken and converts his dogSasha to country pooch Colin. Producer Lucy Blakstad ; Series editor
