Second of an eight-part series in which Leslie Forbes samples French culture through regional cuisine. 2:La Marmite Dieppoise
Chef Jean-Michel - with a little help from "Monsieur Dieppe" - creates a local classic: a fish stew made with lashings of Norman cream and a hint of the curry that is a memory of Dieppe's spice trade. Tourism is more important today, especially from
Britain. The Normans may enjoy our Cheddar (a little), but what do Britons want when they cross the channel - fresh fish, or unpasteurised
Camembert? Only after the obligatory visit to the hypermarket ...

John Berger - novelist, playwright and one of the most influential writers about arts in the English language - makes his debut as a performance artist. In a powerful one-man performance that uses many voices, he explores the nature of silence, the significance of radio and the quality of likeness in a work of art. He rails against contemporary commercial cynicism, the international trade in body parts and the plight of Mexican freedom fighters, reflects on a Beethoven piano sonata and offers a commentary on Goya's affection for his dog during the artist's last silent years in Bordeaux.

Based on a true story, this is a traumatic and touching drama of bravery and faith, as a man struggles to recover from extensive brain damage. David is a carpenter. He is happily married with two small children and has a tendency to go sleepwalking. One night in his sleep he breaks a window and severs an artery in his arm. Doctors tell him it will have to be amputated, but his deeply religious wife, Susannah, refuses to give up hope. She makes a bargain with God and the arm is saved. True to Susannah's promise that her husband will be of service to
God, David discovers a kind of faith and becomes a priest -just at the time that Susannah contracts cancer, putting his faith and family under tremendous strain. When she dies,
David attempts to gas himself in his car, inflicting massage brain damage upon himself. The play documents his slow, but extraordinary, recovery, which was made possible only with the help and support of his two small children. with Eric Allen , William Eedle ,
Cornelius Garrett , Andy Hockley and Sunny Ormonde Director Shaun MacLoughlin Repeat

Hanitrarivo Rasaonaivo talks about their music and instruments, which include the valiha - a kind of bamboo zither strung with bicycle brake cables - and the marovany, which is made from a large, wooden box.
