Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit is on in three parts tomorrow on BBC Four, from 10:05.
not to oversell it, but i do think it's one of the better written things.

the first four eps of Roads to Freedom is BBC4 on Wednesday. It's a '70s series that has a cool/grimy John le Carré vibe. Apparently it's been unavailable until recently.
The way the camera shifts and the characters narrating their thoughts is very . . cool. deft/adept.
it's sort of videogamey in a way I can't describe.

And a Free Thinking episode (BBC radio 3) on Satyajit Ray
