Radio: Pick of the Day

CONTINUING THE trend of merging drama and documentary is Cuban Solo (2.15pm R4), David Pownall's account of the life and murder of the Cuban anti-corruption judge and classical composer, Alejandro Caturla. The research behind the play brought new information to light. Sadly though, Robert Glenister's Caturla conjures Harrow rather than Havana.

There are two celebrations tonight: in Performance on 3 (7pm R3), the London Mozart Players mark their 50th anniversary with a concert at the Royal Festival Hall.

Ruskin at 100 (8pm R4) charts the history of the Oxford college and ponders its role in the 21st century with a little help from John Prescott (right).
