The Student by MAIRIN O'CONNOR
Read by Trudy Keller
'She came from the heat of Alabama and found heat in Connemara.
It was unbelievable and utterly dismaying. Back in the USA through the early days of summer when temperatures were climbing steadily to the 90s, she had cheered herself with the thought of three weeks in the cool windy places of the west of Ireland.'
Producer KATHRYN PORTER BBC Northern Ireland

Meek and Mild by MICHAEL MCSTAY with and The older members of the Sports and Social Club tend to spend more time bending their elbows at the bar than in sporting activities and their wives are, quite rightly, distrustful of the amount of time that they spend there. But the 'Old Stagers' tennis tournament brings out their sporting instincts in more ways than one.

'The thing that I'm trying to express in all my sculpture is joy - praise of the creation.' David Wynne 's recent commission to replace the medieval sculpture of Christ on the west front of Wells
Cathedral will be unveiled by HRH The Prince of Wales tomorrow. In conversation with Sue MacGregor , David Wynne describes how he set about this project, and talks about the inspiration which informs all his work, whether he's sculpting a horse, a gorilla or public personalities as diverse as Baden-Powell, Yehudi Menuhin or Virginia Wade.
