AFTER SEVERAL weeks discussing events of world importance, Resigning Issues (9am R4) gets parochial, as Stephen Bayley joins Fergal Keane to explain why he quit the Millennium Experience. Keane, developing into a fairly tough interviewer, may even get him to say something he hasn't already said in numerous newspaper articles. George Gershwin's older brother, Ira, gets a look-in with Pogani's for Lunch (9pm R2), an entertaining, name- dropping selection from his diaries kept during a trip to Europe in 1928. This week's Voices (4pm R3) features the amiable Thomas Allen (right), talking about and performing music by Vaughan Williams, Britten, Cole Porter and Mozart.
