Michael Berkeley 's guest, Professor Robert Winston , is head of infertility services, obstetrics and gynaecology at Hammersmith Hospital, London, and one of the world's leading experts in infertility treatment. He was catapulted into the spotlight in 1996 when he agreed to give infertility treatment to a woman with HIV. Lord Winston is a passionate music lover, and his choices range from a Hebrew cantata by Carlo Grossi and traditional
Jewish klezmer music to operatic excerpts from Rossini, Wagner and Strauss, and Schubert's sublime Piano Trio in B flat.

Roderick Swanston asks six leading performers of early music to reveal the personal element in their music making.
5: Julian Bream got his first lute when a sailor sold one to his father in the street for £2. The boy was also given a jazz guitar, but he was determined to play the classical instrument. That determination has seen him through 50 years of hard work: at music college, where neither of his instruments was taught; in concert, where he created a new audience and a new repertoire: in the studios; and on tour, alone or with the Julian Bream Consort. A self-confessed loner, he tends his magnificent garden with the same thoughtful perfectionism he brings to his other great love, music. Music includes:
Dowland Forlorn Hope Fancy; Three Songs
Peter Pears (tenor) Rosseter Sacred End Pavan and Galliard Britten,
arr Bream Dances from "Gloriana"
Falla Homenaje pour le Tombeau de Debussy
Bach, arr Bream Chaconne in D minor

6: Giant Steps to Freedom
"Making records in South Africa is what I always wanted to do," says trumpeter Hugh Masekela , who returned there after 30 years in exile. The days of jazz as a rallying cry for liberation may be over, but how easy is it to shake off the legacy of apartheid? John Fordham investigates whether democratic
South Africa offers a new dawn for jazz musicians.
