Radio: Pick of the Day

Click to follow
GRAEME GARDEN'S series of medicine-related humour, What's the Bleeding Time? (1pm R2), comes to a close with a number of psychiatry sketches. Athough an obvious subject for double-acts (there are samples of Fry and Laurie and the Two Ronnies), there are some solo gems, including a typically monomaniacal riff from Jackie Mason.

The highlight of Radio 3's day is Opera on 3 (6.30pm). Janacek's Katya Kabanova, conducted by Charles Mackerras with the New York Metropolitan Opera, has Catherine Malfitano in the none-too-gentle lead.

Still No Truce (12.25am R4) is a very welcome repeat of the thoughts on faith of Anglo-Welsh poet RS Thomas (right).
