RA­DIO CHOICE

THE Tiger Who Came To Tea was first pub­lished 50 years ago. Chil­dren who had it read to them as a bed­time story are now read­ing this clas­sic book to their grand­chil­dren. Ju­dith Kerr (pic­tured), who wrote and il­lus­trated the book af­ter a visit to the zoo with her young daugh­ter, is still hard at work, writing and draw­ing at the same desk where she has cre­ated all her books, in­clud­ing her tales of Mog the cat. PINK RABBITS AND

OTHER AN­I­MALS (RA­DIO 4, 11.30AM) joins Jes­sica Treen as she vis­its the 95-year-old artist and au­thor, and finds her in the throes of cre­at­ing an­other book for a new gen­er­a­tion of chil­dren.

IAN BOSTRIDGE is one of the finest tenors of his gen­er­a­tion. He didn’t be­come a full-time singer un­til he was 30 and seemed

set on an aca­demic career; now, he’s an in­ter­na­tional star. On Sun­day, he’s giv­ing a recital at Wig­more Hall of ro­man­tic, in­tense and ex­pres­sive songs by

the Aus­trian com­poser Hugo Wolf. Ian will be join­ing Sean Raf­ferty on this even­ing’s IN TUNE

(RA­DIO 3, 5PM) for a live per­for­mance.

HA­LEY FOHR has a rich bari­tone voice, which — de­spite its pitch — doesn’t sound mas­cu­line. You can hear her voice, plus mu­sic from jazz trum­peter Don Cherry, in tonight’s LATE JUNC­TION (RA­DIO 3, 11PM).
