A series of six programmes 4: Wilhelm Reich
'The main problem people have in evaluating me and my work lies not with me but with themselves.'
Psychologist Wilhelm Reich was rejected by Freud, expelled from the Communist Party, hounded out of Norway and arrested in the United States. He believed that sexual repression underlies all psychological and many social problems. His ideas were too radical and challenging for his time and place.
'As a result of universal sexual repression, men and women have lost the ability to experience the ultimate surrender to "orgastic potency".' Presented by Hugh Sykes Reader MICHAEL MELLINGER Researcher MIKE WOOLF

The Future of the Seven Deadly Sins Today: Wrath
From the Watershed Arts
Centre in Bristol, a look at what the problems might be in the year 2000 - racial tension (63 per cent of the Radio 4 Generation believe a lot of racial tension still exists in Britain today); football hooliganism, defence and terrorism. Is it ever right to get angry about what one believes in? Is violence ever justified - even if used by the police? Is wrath always a sin? Chairman John Humphrys Researcher JO WHILEY Producers BILL MORRIS and PAUL KOBRAK

Writers by Writers
Gossip writers and voyeurs calling themselves scholars - that was W.H. Auden's view of literary biographers. But how do they see themselves? Are they noble seekers after truth or heartless parasites on the creative genius of others? And where do they draw the line when they're tracking down the writer behind the work?
Humphrey Carpenter, himself a biographer, investigates this contentious form of writing with the help of fellow-practitioners Michael Holroyd , Claire Tomalin ,
Hilary Spurling , Andrew Motion and Ian Hamilton. Producer LIZ EDWARDS
