around the clock around the world

Imagine a monkey watching television, switching from one station to another and trying to make sense of what he is seeing. That's the premise behind Roger Waters' 1992 concept album, Amused To Death. Waters draws from the news, history, and his personal life to find understanding and meaning in a chaotic world. In a one-hour special this weekend (Saturday 29th at 07:00 GMT, Sunday 30th at 05:00 and 20:00 GMT and Tuesday 1st at 19:00 GMT), you'll hear Roger Waters talk about the ideas behind the album, and lots of music from the new Deluxe reissue available 7/24 with new Blu-Ray surround mix. Waters says, "One has to remember all the time that I'm talking about a work that I made in 1992. Though I'm remembering the record from 20 years ago, most of what I had to say then sadly still pertains today and is maybe even more relevant to our predicament as people in 2015 even than it was in 1992." The show is hosted by Craig Bailey from the American syndicated show, The Floydian Slip.



The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the world's largest arts festival, with last year's spanning 25 days and featuring over 3,193 shows from 51 countries in 299 venues. Established in 1947 as an alternative to the Edinburgh International Festival, it takes place annually in Scotland's capital, in August. The Fringe is a showcase for the performing arts, with show categories including Cabaret, Children's shows, Comedy, Dance, Physical Theatre & Circus, Events, Exhibitions, Music, Musicals and Opera, Spoken Word and Theatre. And we're at the heart of it, meeting performers from around the planet. Until the end of the Festival, Ewan Spence hosts an anarchic daily programme Live From The Fringe - your last chance to enjoy the live programme is today at 11:00 GMT.
