The History of Deutsche Grammophon The second of six programmes celebrating the centenary of the Deutsche Grammophon record label.
Sound in the Darkness: 1933-45
Deutsche Grammophon did not escape the economic catastrophe that engulfed Germany in the 1920s and the company struggled to avert bankruptcy. The thirties saw a recovery from this perilous position, but Nazi influence on the company grew: as it now admits, this chapter of its history does not reflect well on Deutsche Grammophon. By 1941, the company had released a version of Bach's St Matthew Passion with Aryanised words, and had acceded to Gestapo instructions forbidding them to produce recordings of Jewish artists. Stephen Johnson looks into this dark period in the company's history, examining the extent of the collaboration with the Third Reich but also detailing acts of individual courage by employees who hid recordings of Jewish artists to save them from destruction.

The second of three programmes in which Helen Mayhew explores the career of jazz legend Nina Simone.
Singing for Civil Rights. Nina Simone played a powerful part in the campaign for civil rights in America during the sixties, writing some of the hardest-hitting protest songs, including Mississippi Goddam;
Young, Gifted and Black: and Four Women. She became the voice of the movement, alongside
Martin Luther King , Stokely Carmichael and Malcolm X. She talks candidly about the part she played and her eventual rejection of the country she fought so hard to improve. The period had an enormous impact on her music and her emotions, which all poured into her improvisational performances.
Broadcaster and writer Darcus Howe talks about the impact of her work. Other guests include Maya Angelou , John Fordham and Dianne Reeve.

The last of six programmes in which Professor Steve Jones assesses the legacy of Charles Darwin 's Origin of Species.
Hybrids. When two unlikely bedfellows combine, is the result a uneasy mishmash which is neither fish nor fowl? Or are such hybrids exciting products of rigorous and dynamic fusion? Professor Steve Jones looks at hybridisation as it takes place in the arts and in science: from music and cookery to genetic modification and cross-breeding in nature. He investigates the mechanisms by which these variations come into existence and concludes the series with the startling question: is it possible for evolution to continue for ever - or not?

A gig by tenor and soprano saxophonist Ravi Coltrane as part of his first visit to the UK to perform music from his first album as leader.
Despite an impeccable jazz pedigree - he is the son of John Coltrane and his keyboardist wife Alice - Ravi did not become involved with jazz until his early twenties. He has since toured and recorded with a variety of leaders - including Geri Allen , Steve Coleman , Joanne Brackeen and Graham Haynes - and has developed a personal, understated approach to his instruments. Tonight, he is joined by Ralph Alessi on trumpet,
Darryl Hall on bass, Steve Hass on drums and Andy Milne on piano.
