John Dalton  

The scientist John Dalton was born in North England in 1766. Although he came from a relatively poor Quaker family, he managed to become one of the most celebrated scientists of his age. Through his work, he helped to establish Manchester as a place where not only products were made but ideas were born. His reputation during his lifetime was so high that unusually a statue was erected to him before he died. Among his interests were meteorology, gasses and colour blindness. However, he is most remembered today for his pioneering thinking in the field of atomic theory. With: Jim Bennett Former Director of the Museum of the History of Science at the University of Oxford and Keeper Emeritus at the Science Museum Aileen Fyfe Reader in British History at the University of St Andrews James Sumner Lecturer in the History of Technology at the Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine at the University of Manchester Producer: Victoria Brignell.

She also explains what the Princess Alia Foundation is doing to combat the worldwide problem of poaching. His excellency Akel Biltaji, the mayor of Amman, talks about the transformation of his city, technological innovation, and the explosion in world class (and traditional) cuisine.

Jean Sibelius  

Jean Sibelius er - nøjagtig som Carl Nielsen - født for 150 år siden, og det bliver fejret hele året i den klassiske musikverden, og i den anledning genudsender den2radio udsendelsen om Sibelius optaget i hans hjem ved Helsinki - Ainola opkaldt efter hans kone - det er museum i dag. I udsendelsen løfter den svensk-finske pianist Folke Gräsbeck sløret for et af de store mysterier i musikhistorien, hvad blev der af den 8.symfoni? For den gik...

Heidi im Pixelwald - Pipilotti Rist im New Museum in New York - 26.10.2016  

"Pixelwald", so nennt das New Museum in New York die Retrospektive der Videokünstlerin Pipilotti Rist. Organisch und technisch wie dieser Titel ist der Bilderkosmos der Schweizer Künstlerin, den sie mit Lust und subversivem Humor bespielt.


Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for October 26, 2016 is:

beatific • \bee-uh-TIFF-ik\  • adjective

1 : of, possessing, or imparting a state of utmost bliss

2 : having a blissful appearance


"She was Italian, funny, a beatific tomboy, with just the hint of a lazy eye, and wore a pair of glasses that made me think of the wonders of the library." — Bruce Springsteen, Born to Run, 2016

"Maybe it was the unexpected warmth of the gesture….  Maybe it was his response, the beatific expression on his face, eyes almost closed, head tilted toward her shoulder.… But when Michelle Obama hugged former President George W. Bush … at a ceremony to open the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the image quickly took flight online." — Mark Landler, The New York Times, 26 Sept. 2016

Did you know?

Beatific—which derives from Latin beatificus, meaning "making happy"—has graced the English language as a word describing things that impart consummate bliss since the 17th century. In theology, the phrase "beatific vision" gained meaning as an allusion to the direct sight of God enjoyed by the blessed in heaven. Today, the word more frequently describes a blissful look or appearance. A closely related word is beatitude, which can refer to a state of utmost bliss or to any of the declarations made by Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount.

Emma Rice to leave The Globe, plus Boyz n the Hood director John Singleton and the new Design Museum  

Shakespeare's Globe artistic director Emma Rice is to leave the theatre in 2018 after its board decided her methods are not authentic enough. Rice took charge of the London theatre in January but has come in for fierce criticism, including for her use of sound and lighting technology. Theatre critics Sarah Hemming, of the Financial Times, and Ann Treneman of the Times, discuss the reasons for Rice's departure and The Globe's future. In a month's time the new Design Museum in London will be unveiled, having moved from its Thames-side home to its new, larger location, the building that was the Grade II* listed Commonwealth Institute in Kensington High St. John Pawson, the architect who has designed the interiors, and Dejan Sudjic, director of the Design Museum, give John Wilson the first access to the £83m project. As Boyz n the Hood goes back into cinemas to mark its 25th Anniversary - and as a centrepiece of the British Film Industry's Black Star season - John Singleton talks to John Wilson about writing and directing what would become a ground-breaking film by the age of 23, and why the industry is more difficult than ever for black filmmakers.

Ausstellung in Baden Baden - Kerze, Kunst und Popkultur  
Das Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden zeigt die weltweit erste Ausstellung zum Thema Kerze. Das klingt zunächst etwas eintönig. Wie und warum die Kerze im 21. Jahrhundert neu entdeckt, interpretiert und dargestellt wird, ist jedoch verblüffend.

127-Rowing Across the Atlantic  

In 1896 two New Jersey clam diggers made a bold bid for fame: They set out to cross the North Atlantic in a rowboat, a feat that had never been accomplished before. In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll follow the adventure of George Harbo and Frank Samuelsen, which one newspaper called "the most remarkable event in the way of ocean navigation that ever transpired."

We'll also meet some military mammals and puzzle over a thwarted burglar.


The score for Telemann's Gulliver Suite includes "Lilliputian" and "Brobdingnagian" note values.

In 1964 Zambia announced a rather low-tech space program.

Frank O. Gehry: Building the Inspiring Space  

If you can name one living architect, it's probably Frank Gehry. Gehry has designed some of the world's most recognizable and beloved buildings... buildings that are surprising and playful, like the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. In this episode, Gehry talks about what compelled him to put the art back in architecture. He explains his obsession with fish and motion and curvilinear forms. And he remembers the professor who told him he'd never make it in architecture.

Atlantikwall, 11.06
