Music from the catalogues of Far Side Music, the world's primary source for East Asian sounds, presented by Paul Fisher. This week: rare, popular 1980s and ‘90s music from Northeastern Thailand, or Isaan. Khmer Surin are ethnic Khmers of Cambodian descent living in Isaan. Much of their culture and language has been disappearing but has been kept alive partly through their music. This programme combines 1990s Khmer Surin popular music with music from one of Isaan’s greatest singers, Jintara Poonlarp, known for her style of music called morlam. We feature several now rare tracks from her early years in the 1980s and 1990s. Beginning with Jintara Poonlarp, her music and Khmer Surin are played in succession, one after another. While there are some differences, there are also many similarities between morlam and Khmer surin music. Visit farsidemusic.com for more information. [Repeats Saturday 5.30pm.]

[Repeated from Monday 11.30am.] Kasia Flisiuk challenges the way an all-girls school has taught her to analyze women in literature. In each episode she explores a new book and theme that challenges women’s representation across genres and times. Episode 3: Utopian Female Bliss, Mrs. Dalloway and Barbie. Kasia is joined by Dagmara again, as they continue their discussion of Mrs Dalloway. They draw on an intriguing comparison of Woolf’s masterpiece and the iconic Barbie movie, uncovering unexpected connections between the seemingly disparate words. At the centre of their discussion, they explore the underlying male violence, drawing on Clarissa’s relationship with Peter and Septimus. They bring forth the subtle but powerful critique of male domination, manipulation and societal expectations surrounding marriage. Lastly, they delve into how reality often differs from the idyllic deception of female solidarity in the Barbie narrative or unharmed relation between Clarissa and Sally. Find Kasia on Instagram @womengetlit and @apolishgalsthoughts.

[Repeated from Sunday 1.30pm.] Master J presents the fourth of eight different Arts Based Game Shows that Won’t Work. Gamely playing along and happy to shoulder the blame are: poet Dennis Just Dennis, comedian Geoff Steel, singer-songwriter James Leon, screenwriter James Ruzicka, and musical theatre actor Karen Holmes. They will attempt to pass themselves off as famous stars to make this week's game show "I'm A Celebrity – Quiz Me Out Of Here" work. They'll guilelessly portray their heroes, panic as they race to answer rapid-fire questions against the clock, and they'll make a note to no longer take the call to come onto the Arty Facts. The point scoring will be explained. You can play along at home. Expect displays of ignorance, unfairness, and the occasional laugh. Many pets may find this show scary, so please keep them safely locked outdoors for the duration of the show. For more information visit Master J on Facebook.
