BBC Proms: Hooray for Hollywood Radio 3, Monday 7.30pm

The John Wilson Orchestra returns to the RAH for more movie-inspired magic.

Friday Play: The Talented Mr Ripley Radio 4, Friday 9pm

Another set of repeats, but just as welcome - Ian Hart’s turn as Patricia Highsmith’s charming killer in adaptations of all five of her Ripley novels is just superb.
