Radio 3 Highlights

Today's Focus
There will be two Reflections From Asia this weekend.   On Saturday RFA will rebroadcast Harvey Stockwin's talk originally broadcast only on November 23rd,  exploring the background to the Xi-Abe meeting at the recent APEC summit in Beijing.   On Sunday Harvey Stockwin will present his assessment of the way in which Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was triumphant in the recent Japanese general election.(Saturday 7.30am-7.45am, Sunday 6.30pm-6.45pm)

Today's topic on Big Idea is Postcolonialism, which is perhaps the most important modality of the past fifty years in the humanities – the study of history, the arts, literature and culture. The most significant event of modern history was the rolling back of the great modern empires – the Portuguese and Spanish, Dutch and French, Russian, German, Ottoman, and British – which had coloured the map of the world in the nineteenth century. To discuss this, Professor Douglas Kerr is joined by Pheng Cheah, a Professor at the University of California at Berkeley and an authority on the postcolonial and cosmopolitan, and by Professor Stephen Chu, Head of the Hong Kong Studies programme at Hong Kong University.(Saturday 8.30am-9am)

Brand new weekend morning line up

After nearly seven years of spreading mirth and merriment on the Radio 3 airwaves, our weekend morning guy Tim Littlechild has decided its time to spread his wings, and give out some "good news over sad music" to listeners in the UK. As we say "thanks, goodbye and best of luck" to Tim, the Morning Show listeners of "2BR" in Lancashire will be welcoming him very shortly. 

Meanwhile, we have a brand new weekend morning line up for you on Radio 3, starting with Judd Boaz, every Saturday from 9am-1pm. Join him for a freshly squeezed serving of "The Juice", featuring special guests, top tunes and lots of fun. ​Then, Carolyn Wright and Paul Haswell (AKA the Pop Fugitives), are plotting to make their escape every Sunday morning between 9.30 and 1. Join them to hear excellent music, including tracks from their album of the week, as well as interviews and live music in the studio.
Congratulations to Radio 3's Pinoy Life!

Congratulations to Radio 3's Pinoy Life!  The show, hosted by Aileen Alonzo and Jun Concepcion, which has won a top award in the Philippines. Pinoy Life was judged Best Radio Show in the Migration Advocacy and Media (MAM) Awards given out by the Commission on Filipinos Overseas. The programme was recongnised for having raised public awareness about issues on Filipino migration and for tackling problems affecting overseas Filipinos, particularly household service workers in Hong Kong.

Operation Santa Claus 2014
