If you are a fan of The Archers (7pm, Radio 4) you will be well aware that the 50th anniversary edition brings a stunning twist in the plot. If, like me, you can't stand the ever-tedious population of Ambridge, switch to two entrancing hours of Leonard Bernstein's On The Town (7pm, Radio 3). It's a recording of last year's concert performance at the Royal Festival Hall by an Anglo-American cast.
Cleo Laine and John Dankworth, looking for somewhere to enjoy regular sessions with their musical friends, eventually realised that the answer was to convert the stable block at their home near Milton Keynes. That was 30 years ago, and the place has been jumping ever since, with performers ranging from George Shearing to Nigel Kennedy. Now it has been refurbished as a 300-seat concert hall and welcomes in the (authentic) new millennium with Live From The Stables (8.30pm, Radio 2), the first of four celebratory performances.
