    Synopsis
    Is English an innately playful language? Are word games good for you? Do we divide into number and word players? And could Scrabble have been invented in any other language? In this special programme, Stephen examines many word games, and we’ll hear some familiar voices playing unfamiliar games - Sheila Dillon from 'The Food Programme' plays 'Font or Cheese' against miscellanist Ben Schott. Phill Juptitus talks about his personal word game habits, and we’ll remember the late Humphrey Lyttelton’s scurrilous account of Una Stubbs on 'I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue'. We’ll travel deep inside the mind of puzzle-setter Chris Maslanka and visit the Comedy Store in London to experience the lightning reflexes of some top word-athletes. Plus, we’ll examine an extraordinary claim - which the fashion for increasingly cryptic crosswords helped to defeat Hitler. Stephen Fry celebrates the fun side of the English language in this exclusive extended edition of a BBC Radio 4 special.

    Synopsis
    An imaginary island on the Equator has suddenly achieved importance through the discovery of oil—what will happen to the men and women living under the tensions of life on this island? At one end of this island is the oil refinery where the members of the staff live in constant proximity to one another, and where emotions are heightened by the lack of privacy. The men are goaded by ambitions for power, while the women are drawn into affairs of love and passion. At the other end of the island is a hotbed of politics where a British diplomat is attempting to retain the island under Britain's sphere of influence; where an ailing king is fearful of what will happen when he is succeeded by a young and untrained prince; where a nationalist group is plotting to overthrow the monarchy and seize the oil fields. Waugh handles brilliantly his political plots, but always interwoven with them are the personal dramas of love and fear, of cowardice and courage. Rich in detail and characterisation, and in the exotic colours and customs of this strange land, the novel has constant suspense and variety. Alec Waugh, 1898-1981, was a British novelist born in London and educated at Sherborne Public School, Dorset. Waugh's first novel, The Loom of Youth (1917), is a semi-autobiographical account of public-school life that caused some controversy at the time and led to his expulsion. Waugh was the only boy ever to be expelled from The Old Shirburnian Society. Despite setting this record, Waugh went on to become the successful author of over 50 works, and lived in many exotic places throughout his life which later became the settings for some of his texts. He was also a noted wine connoisseur and campaigned to make the cocktail party a regular feature of 1920s social life.

    Synopsis
    A one-man crime wave is shaking the peaceful city of Santa Maria, California, and no place is safe. Kenny Trask, an unpredictable, high-strung, shockingly violent convict, has just escaped from prison and is intent on putting together enough cash to bankroll a new life for himself, his ex-cellmate, and the female defense attorney he believes they must “rescue”. Only one man is willing to stand in the way: Robby Medavoy, a cop who's been called a hero, whose unorthodox style has fueled the resentment of rival officers and the suspicions of his superiors. With a contract on his life from his department's SWAT team, Medavoy must put everything on the line to pull Trask in—his reputation, his survival, and, unexpectedly, the woman he comes to love.

    Synopsis
    Bill Ayers was born into privilege and is today a highly respected educator and community activist. In the late 1960s he was a founder of the militant activist group the Weather Underground. Living on the run, stealing explosives, and hiding from the law, Ayers was involved in the defining moments of his generation: the Days of Rage, SDS, the Black Panthers—and the explosion that killed his beloved comrade, Diana Oughton. Fugitive Days tells of these turbulent events, and of the tenacity with which Ayers slowly rebuilt his life after it all came apart. Ayers writes openly about his regrets and what he continues to believe was right. The result is a profoundly honest account of an incendiary chapter in our history.

Catheryn Westering has no intention of marrying her respectable but boring cousin, Edmund Caston, and her aunt and uncle have no intention of giving her access to her newly discovered fortune. Daringly, she rushes to London to appeal to her distant, very attractive kinsman, the Earl of Dambroke, for help. Before Dambroke knows it, she's become an essential part of his household: an eager participant in the London social whirl; a protege of his mother; a confidante to his spoilt sister and his mischievous younger brother; and a thorn in the masterful Earl's side. But London is a dangerous place, and although Dambroke frequently objects to Catheryn's 'interference' in his family and social affairs, is it possible that, beneath his exasperation, much warmer feelings for Catheryn have already ignited?

    Synopsis
    A dark murder mystery—and an edgy send-up of political correctness and America's appetite for celebrity vice—by 'a very gifted writer and storyteller who can mix raucous, vulgar comedy with shrewd insight and deep feeling and still maintain the narrative pace of a 94 mph fastball.' (Booklist) Teddy Moon, ace major league relief pitcher, manic-depressive, and occasional amnesiac—is convinced that he's being framed for the bizarre murders of several transsexuals who are turning up in the garbage chutes of his team's various hotels. Hounded by the police, the Legion of Fear, and the elite cadres of the Politically Correct, Teddy takes off cross-country on a manic binge to find someone who doesn't think he did it. He appeals to an ex-wife in Iowa, his heretical psychiatrist at the Alamo Ranch Sanitorium in New Mexico, and finally throws himself into the many arms of his neo-Hindu girlfriend in Hollywood, but no one believes his story—and why should they? Only Moon, with the help of his alter egos Don Coyote and the Baseballman, can find the truth—and the murderer. Maybe.

    WANTED: ONE OUTLAWED SPACE PILOT! Home, the spaceship's pilot, had been warned. 'Don't forget the meteor swarm.' And Home's directional calculations for the Vega Queen's course took that advice into account; the spaceship would go fifteen thousand miles out of its way to avoid those deadly celestial rocks. But when Home went off duty, he felt himself numbed by a curious druglike leadenness. And the next thing he knew, he was in a lifeboat, speeding away from the floating wreckage of the Vega Queen. Eighteen survivors out of one hundred and fifty-three passengers. And each one in the tiny space shell believed Home responsible…deliberate negligence, calculated destruction… Someone had drugged Home, he knew; someone had tampered with the ship to alter its course.

    Synopsis
    On March 11, 2011, an earthquake large enough to knock the earth from its axis sent a massive tsunami speeding toward the Japanese coast and the aging and vulnerable Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power reactors. Over the following weeks, the world watched in horror as a natural disaster became a man-made catastrophe: fail-safes failed, cooling systems shut down, nuclear rods melted. In the first definitive account of the Fukushima disaster, two leading experts from the Union of Concerned Scientists, David Lochbaum and Edwin Lyman, team up with journalist Susan Q. Stranahan, the lead reporter of the Philadelphia Inquirer's Pulitzer Prizewinning coverage of the Three Mile Island accident, to tell this harrowing story. Fukushima combines a fast-paced, riveting account of the tsunami and the nuclear emergency it created with an explanation of the science and technology behind the meltdown as it unfolded in real time. The narrative also extends to other severe nuclear accidents to address both the terrifying question of whether it could happen elsewhere and how such a crisis can be averted in the future.

    Synopsis
    An unforgettable mission hits close to home in this continuation of the Red Starr series by USA Today best-selling author Kennedy Layne.... John 'Trigger' Dixon returned to his small hometown in rural Mississippi as a favor to an old high school friend. It was meant to be a quick trip, with a short visit to his parents and an afternoon spent spoiling his two nephews. He should have known his vacation wouldn't go as planned. The rebel in him always got in the way. Devyn Wilde had lived up to her surname according to the townsfolk - at least by reputation. She'd never let it bother her before, but she'd finally had enough after she was brought in for questioning by the police for her brother's murder. How could anyone believe that she would forsake her family? In the South, family comes before anyone or anything. Trigger had last seen Devyn right before he'd joined the Red Starr Hostage Rescue Team, both of them agreeing to end their casual relationship. After all, it had been a temporary diversion - friends with benefits. He hadn't expected to find that she was a suspect in a homicide investigation, secretly investigating her brother's mysterious murder. Their sweet passion returns full force despite the danger, but keeping an old promise might just cost him his life. Red Starr HRT is a paramilitary hostage rescue team that was originally formed years ago by two retired marine master sergeants. Upon the death of Catori Starr's husband, Brendan 'Red' O'Neill, she took a much-needed hiatus to deal with her guilt and all-consuming grief. Two years later Starr is clawing her way back and ready to lead a fresh team of five cherry-picked former Force Recon marines. Red Starr HRT takes cases the FBI and other agencies won't touch, from domestic assignments bordering on the gray edges to missions abroad against savage terrorist regimes. Follow along as Kennedy Layne conveys each of their stories as they work together on high-risk rescues that lead them down perilous paths of passion, intrigue, and suspense....
