    Its opening bars can bring a tear to the eye and a lump to the throat. It is at once the most romantic and sentimental melody ever written. It is of course the The Blue Danube Waltz, composed by the Waltz King, Johann Strauss the Younger. For more than 60 years Strauss captivated audiences with his evocations of Viennese joi de vivre; yet his own life was often sad. This programme makes use of fascinating contemporary writings as well as the wonderful music itself.

    Franz Joseph Haydn's creative life spanned the latter half of the 18th century, and more than any other musician of his period, he was responsible for the evolution of the Viennese classical style. He was a humble man, largely self-taught, who in his later years became the doyen of the English musical scene. This program is a must for lovers of the Viennese style.

    In 1928 Alexander Fleming came across some mould in an old culture dish; from it came one of the greatest discoveries of medicine: Penicillin, an antibiotic that kills bacteria without producing toxic side-effects. However, it wasn't until 1940, when two scientists at Oxford succeeded in demonstrating that the new drug could be purified and mass-produced, that the treatment of infections and infectious diseases was revolutionized.

    Johann Sebastian Bach has been called the father of Western music; precise and incredibly prolific, his works fill 52 volumes. He was an obstinate but nevertheless modest man and the outstanding tributes paid to his work more than a 100 years after his burial in an unmarked grave, would have probably amused him. This programme traces the development of his life and work and is copiously illustrated with examples of his music.

    Marconi didn't invent radio waves, that credit goes to Heinrich Hertz, for whom the units hertz and megahertz are named. Hertz had discovered and first produced radio waves in 1888. But it was Marconi who took the Hertz discovery and developed what the world now knows as radio. In 1894 Marconi began experimenting at his family's home near Bologna. In 1899, he sent a signal 31 miles across the English Channel to France.

    Borley Rectory in rural Suffolk seems to have been plagued with ghosts, particularly that of a young French nun believed to have been murdered on the site. Dark and malevolent shapes, poltergeist activity, and voices from disused cellars and stairways haunt this recording. Borley Rectory burned down in the 1950s - and so did the studio where this eerie reconstruction was recorded.

    At the dawn of the 20th century there emerged a man with a burning zeal to sow chaos, and out of that chaos build a new conception of human existence. Lenin, the back-room plotter, revolutionary, lawyer, writer, and anti-God prophet of a new world order called communism, flourished in a world shattered and disillusioned by war. In the Soviet Union, his writings and sayings were sacred, and a Lenin quotation once brooked no argument. Yet his spell of power was brief and his end enfeebled.

    Columbus did not discover America. That honour goes to Norseman Bjarni Herjolfsson whose storm-driven Viking longship took him briefly to the mainland of North America. Yet it was five centuries before Europeans arrived once more on the American coast. Columbus happened to be the first.
