No Fixed Points. In the first of three documentaries charting the history of the Third Programme and Radio 3,
Humphrey Carpenter investigates the origins of the Third in the aftermath of the Second World War. In an interview from the BBC's own archives, Director
General William Haley outlines his vision of a network with no regular programmes, no news bulletins and no fixed points. Listeners including Peter Maxwell Davies and Harold Pinter remember how the Third changed their lives, Michael Tippett recalls programmes he presented, and former Controller Harman Grisewood reflects on an early complaint about "vulgarisation" - from EM Forster. And there are tales of coal shortages, atrocious reception, fan mail from Richard Strauss - who heard the Third in Switzerland - and a triumphant visit to London by the whole of the Vienna Opera.
