Call [number removed]
Kate has died, suddenly and prematurely. Her husband David and their two children are initially too shattered to mourn this appalling loss. Then David gets a call from an adoption agency. They say that before her death Kate had been trying to trace her birth mother who had given her up for adoption. Now she has been found, but can David and the children bear to meet her? By Robin Mukherjee. Starring James Fleet.
Kate dies before she finds out who her birth mother was, but the investigation she started continues after her death
All God's Children 9.00pm R4
This Friday Play is really about loss and longing, about family and death. When Kate dies, her family tumbles apart until they get a call from an adoption agency. Kate had been trying to find her birth mother and now, rather late, the agency has finally found a lead. While her children don't want to pursue it, her husband David can't articulate why he needs to. If he can find Kate's mother at all , will he find something of his wife in her? Robin Mukherjee's play has strong performances from the cast, including James Fleet as David, and describes deep, primal emotions. It's sometimes a little hesitant about them, though: it feels as if it is a description rather than an exploration and from the start is so canted toward giving us a happy ending that there are no surprises.
3/6. David Aaronovitch hosts another edition of the talk show that invites guests from around the world to observe, parody and dissect the habits of the British from a foreign perspective. Producer Charlie Taylor
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
