Once more his mind turns to the desert sands.

Malcolm & Josh Green
Gone Cuckoo

It’s shortly after dawn on the North York Moors and a male Cuckoo is having a tiny radio transmitter strapped to his back. A few weeks later he will have flown thousands of miles south, 5km up over the Sahara Desert, sending signals back to England as he travels through Libya, Chad and Congo. For thousands of years the Cuckoo has been part of folklore and its call present in songs, poems and stories. But now this bird is threatened in England and we may soon stop hearing that iconic ‘cuck-coo’. A storyteller and musician follow the trail of this creature with its special place in our culture as bringer of spring.

NT Live
Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead encore

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter, The Woman in Black), Joshua McGuire (The Hour) and David Haig (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The Witness for the Prosecution) star in Tom Stoppard’s brilliantly funny situation comedy, broadcast live from The Old Vic theatre in London. David Leveaux’s new production marks the 50th anniversary of the play that made a young Tom Stoppard’s name overnight. Against the backdrop of Hamlet, two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, take centre stage. As the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of Shakespeare’s iconic drama, they become increasingly out of their depth as their version of the story unfolds.

The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years (12a)

In 1962 four young men - John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr - came together to form the 20th century musical phenomenon known as 'The Beatles'. The band stormed Europe in 1963 and, in 1964, they conquered America. Their groundbreaking world tours changed global youth culture forever and, arguably, invented mass entertainment as we know it today. All the while, the group were composing and recording a series of extraordinarily successful singles and albums. However, the relentless pressure of such unprecedented fame (which in 1966 became uncontrollable turmoil) led to the decision to stop touring. In the ensuing years The Beatles were then free to focus on a series of albums that changed the face of recorded music. Master storyteller and Oscar winner, Ron Howard, explores this incredible journey in his own unique way: How did The Beatles do this? How did they cope with all the fame and pressure? How did they not only survive, but go on to revolutionise popular music? With original interviews, footage, staggering live performances, and the intimate study of character that Ron Howard is known for, he puts us right inside this extraordinary adventure, answering the question everyone always wants to know: What was it like to be there?
