RA­DIO CHOICE

- British Army · David Lyon · Lyon · Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

PAUL RE­VERE, according to Henry Wadsworth Longfel­low’s epic poem, rode alone from Bos­ton to Con­cord, bring­ing news that Bri­tish troops were ar­riv­ing by sea. In fact, Re­vere did not ride alone, but — at least, according to Joe Queenan — Longfel­low couldn’t think of any rhymes for the other rid­ers’ names. Joe ex­plains all in his wry Amer­i­can his­tory se­ries FROM THE MAYFLOWER TO THE

MOON (AND BACK AGAIN) (RA­DIO 4, 1.45PM).

WE HAVE be­come the watch­ers and the watched in this age of hid­den cam­eras, sur­veil­lance tools and shared in­for­ma­tion. For this week’s THINK­ING AL­LOWED (RA­DIO 4, 4PM), Lau­rie Tay­lor looks at how so­cial me­dia lets us fol­low what oth­ers are do­ing, and ex­plores the tech­nol­ogy that al­lows us to su­per­vise our chil­dren and mon­i­tor our

homes. We expect to be able to do this while main­tain­ing our own pri­vacy; Lau­rie is joined by Pro­fes­sors Kirstie Ball and David Lyon to dis­cuss this di­chotomy.

GAIL PORTER (pic­tured) was hor­ri­fied to dis­cover her naked im­age had been pro­jected on to the Houses of Par­lia­ment in a mag­a­zine

stunt. In GROUNDED WITH LOUIS TH­ER­OUX (RA­DIO

4, 8PM), she talks about be­ing caught up in Nineties lad cul­ture, and the alope­cia that left her bald and led to her sup­port for The Lit­tle Princess Trust, which sup­plies wigs for chil­dren who have lost their hair.
