SOUND STORIES (11am R3), a week of playwrights who have inspired musicians ends with Bertolt Brecht, who may not have been much to look at ideologically or personally, but did provide Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler with the material for some memorable music. Naturally, we get Lotte Lenya in The Threepenny Opera and The Seven Deadly Sins.

If that doesn't appeal, try Strictly Conventional (11am R4) in which Quentin Cooper meets the Association of British Investigators.

Bookclub (4pm R4) has A S Byatt (right) talking about her Booker Prize- winning novel, Possession - in which the biography of a Victorian poetaster has resonances in our own time.
