Presented by Martin Handley. Mendelssohn's miniature musical picture is based on the tale of a water-nymph who marries a mortal, and Sibelius's quietly radical Third Symphony contains many Finnish folk elements. Staying in Nordic mood, the Halle's own Lynsey Marsh offers her interpretation of Nielsen's concerto, and Strauss's tone poem is a vivid illustration of the pranks and adventures of the legendary jester who has the last laugh, mocking his enemies from the grave. Recorded last week in Manchester's Bridgewater Hall.

Philip Dodd meets political analyst
Vernon Bogdanor , who explains why he thinks Britain has, since 1997, undergone a process unique in the democratic world: transforming its famously unwritten constitution into a European- or American-style written document, bit by bit, without any real popular interest in doing more. How deeply will this change our system of government and does anybody really know where this process will end? Producer Fiona McLean
