WITH DIARIES, short stories and readings, Alan Bennett (right) now seems to have become a firmly established part of the Christmas ritual. Today he begins an atmospheric five- part reading of Peter Pan and Wendy (9.45am R4 FM).

Another national treasure gets analysed in Postscript (9pm R3). This evening, our continuing fascination with the Bard's life is explored by his most recent biographer, Park Honan, and Katherine Duncan-Jones, who edited the Sonnets.

After last week's "Christmas Cocktails", we get Cabaret Cocktails (7pm R3) with Noel Coward, et al; alas, the wordless purity of the originals is sullied by Robert Cushman's commentary, and it's just not the same.
