'Let's think the unthinkable, let's do the undoable.' Presented in triple gatefold vinyl for the very first time, Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency stars Harry Enfield as the singular detective in this full-cast BBC radio dramatisation of the novel by Douglas Adams. First broadcast on Radio 4 in 2007, these fantastically entertaining comedy scifi dramas are adapted and directed by Dirk Maggs, acclaimed for his dramatisations of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Good Omens, Neverwhere and many others. Dirk Gently has an unshakeable faith in the interconnectedness of all things. His Holistic Detective Agency mainly succeeds in tracking down missing cats – until he becomes embroiled in a supernatural case that will test his belief to the limits. When an old friend starts behaving strangely, Dirk is drawn into a murder investigation involving quantum physics, an Electric Monk, and an ancient mystery that must be solved if the human race is to avoid immediate extinction. Starring Harry Enfield as Dirk Gently and Olivia Colman as Janice, with Billy Boyd as Richard MacDuff, Andrew Sachs as Professor ‘Reg’ Chronotis, Jim Carter as Detective Sergeant Gilks, Michael Fenton Stevens as Michael Wenton Weeks, Toby Longworth as the Electric Monk, Robert Duncan as Gordon Way and Felicity Montagu as Susan Way, with a guest cast including Jeffrey Holland, Wayne Forester, Philip Pope, Tamsin Heatly, Jon Glover and Andy Secombe, and music by Philip Pope.

Frances McDormand makes it a point to play strong, complicated female characters. Her latest role is one of her thorniest yet: she plays the title character in the miniseries Olive Kitteridge. Olive is a small-town Mainer, frustrated, occasionally unpleasant — and she teaches math. We hear from John Luther Adams, the Alaskan composer who didn’t have running water till he was nearly forty. Plus, the unlikely success of Fiddler on the Roof. The characters are Old Country Jews, but it’s really about everyone who made their home here in the US. [Broadcast Date: October 11, 2014] 1.

Writer/producer Judd Apatow and novelist, screenwriter and biographer, A.E. Hotchner on this edition of Fresh Air. Judd Apatow's new series for FOX is called Undeclared. He's billed as the creator/executive producer. It's about a group of geeky college freshmen. Apatow also worked on the Emmy award winners Freaks and Geeks and The Ben Stiller Show. He was a writer for The Larry Sanders Show. He began as a stand-up comic and he wrote jokes for Roseanne, Jim Carrey and Garry Shandling. A.E. Hotchner's book Papa Hemingway is about his friend and colleague, Ernest Hemingway. Hotchner met Hemingway when he was a 20-something journalist, on assignment to interview Hemingway for Cosmopolitan magazine. That first interview in 1948 developed into a 14-year friendship. In 1957, he wrote The World of Nick Adams, a dramatization of Hemingway's Nick Adams stores for CBS. The TV special starred Paul Newman and was scored by Aaron Copland. Tonight, Newman and a cast of stars will stage a production of the work at Avery Fisher Hall in New York. It's a benefit for Paul Newman's charity, The Hole in the Wall.

The fast-cracking experts John Kieran, omniscient sports columnist for the New York Times; Franklin Pierce Adams, New York Post columnist; Oscar Levant, composer, pianist, gag-stacked Broadwayfarer were acknowledged by listeners as the most knowing of know-it-alls.
