ONE OF the chilling features of recent conflicts - particularly in former Yugoslavia and Rwanda (right) - has been the part played by radio stations in stirring up hatred. In War Radio (8pm R4), Misha Glenny listens in to some of the more virulent propaganda stations, and asks what can be done to combat the problem.

On a lighter note, Olivier Messiaen in His Century (6pm R3) marks what would have been his 90th birthday with features and concerts relayed live from Birmingham. The pianist Peter Donohoe begins proceedings with an hour- long recital of works by Messiaen; Gillian Weir closes at 10.45pm with an organ recital, which includes movements from Les Corps Glorieux and La Nativite du Seigneur.
