Of Mammas and Matzohs
American writers have often struck literary gold from the rich mine of Jewish culture.
Is there a comparable body of British fiction? Novelists like Frederic Raphael ,
Bernice Rubens and Howard Jacobson may write about Jewish characters, but does their work make up a recognisable literary tradition?
Anne Karpf investigates the case of the missing Anglo-Jewish novel.

Alexander Walker recalls the screen careers of cinema stars. 8: Robert Redford
He takes the best close-ups of any star today, and although Redford excels at playing the flawed side of American heroes, what he probably grinds his teeth over in private is the fact that the public still insist on taking away an impression of perfection.

(Re-broadcast tomorrow at 1.40pm)
As long as there are punters prepared to part with their money, there is always a bookie willing to take it.
Chris Serle , in at the deep end again, looks at this multi-million pound industry, tracing its history and attempting to understand the intricacies of the mathematics and back-slang that bookmakers use in their day-to-day dealings. He also encounters the 'Prince of Punters' who, even as far back as the 1940s, won a princely E70,000 on one race.

Alexander Goehr , Professor of Music at the University of Cambridge, about what musicians have done to music. 5: Let the People Sing
