The myth of Salome and the dance of the seven veils began as a brief reference in the Bible. It was later popularised in Wilde's highly sexual rendering of the tale. This new version by Lizzie Hopley focuses on the tense family drama at the centre of the myth. Set on the brink of a new era, when a young carpenter is travelling across Israel promulgating his new religion, this story revolves around a girl on the threshold of womanhood, who has been separated from her father and the world she knows.

3/3. Chicago: Factory of the Future. In the last programme about how different cities have shaped our world, Felipe Fernandez-Armesto probes the relationship between leading economists and political thinkers at the University of Chicago in the 1950s, including Milton Friedman and Leo Strauss , and the city itself. George Steiner and Richard Sennett recall the Chicago of the time, and the programme explores how the celebration of individualism by some Chicago intellectuals contrasts starkly with other aspects of life in the Windy City.
