Pop Idol and Big Brother

Evan Davis finds out from those at the top of the lucrative global industry of TV formats.

My War, My Playlist - BBC World Service - The Documentary

y War, My Playlist Duration: 55 minutes First broadcast: Saturday 08 February 2014 In October 2001 Steve Jobs took to the podium to launch his latest innovation – the ipod. Thousands of miles away the war in Afghanistan was just beginning. In this programme we will hear how the MP3 player can now be found in nearly every soldier's kit bag. What role does music play in the lives of soldiers today? As British soldiers prepare for their first war zone posting, building a playlist takes on a real sense of importance for those both excited and anxious about their first tour of duty. What will be the right music to listen to when they are in Helmand? Soldiers stationed at Camp Bastion describe their music as an essential part of their lives. It helps to drown out the constant hum of activity around camp. It gives an adrenalin kick to long, dreary journeys, and helps everybody to relax in their free time. Music can rapidly become a prop, helping those serving to deal with the difficult and potentially-traumatic reality of life serving in Afghanistan. What happens when those troops arrive home? Years after seeing active duty in a warzone, what place do those playlists have in their lives? Do they offer comfort, or rake up difficult and dangerous memories? My War, My Playlist weaves the music soundtracks of Helmand with soldiers' stories of operations. On the face of it, the playlist seems irrelevant, just a selection of favourite songs lying at the bottom of a kit bag. This programme shows that within these track choices, lies an almost endless list of associations, memories and emotions.

Podcast: What does David Cameron's Great Firewall look like? - Boing Boing

David Cameron's attempt to create a Made-in-Britain version of Iran's "Halal Internet" is the worst of both worlds for parents like me. Kids are prevented from seeing things that they need to access – sites about sexual health, for example – and I still have to monitor my daughter all the time when she uses the net (or teach her how to cope with seeing things no kid should see) because the filter won't stop her from accessing the bad stuff. And for parents who don't understand that filters are bunkum, the situation is much worse. It's one thing to know that there are risks to your kid from the internet. But parents who rely on the filter are living in bubble of false security. There's nothing more deadly than a false sense of security: If you know your car is having brake problems, you can compensate by driving with extra care, increasing your following distance, and so on. If you falsely believe your brakes to be in good running order, you're liable to find out the hard way that they aren't (if you survive, you can thank Bruce Schneier for that apt and useful analogy). http://boingboing.net/2014/02/03/podcast-what-does-david-camer.html

7. Vince Horn | The Naked Monk

Stephen Schettini talks with Vincent Horn about the relevancy of Buddhism today. Vincent Horn Vincent Horn is a self-described mind hacker and co-founder of the popular media company Buddhist Geeks. His work focuses on the fusion of nascent technology and contemplative wisdom. Vincent talks candidly about dealing with disappointment with his teachers and traditions. We also discuss the convergence of various strands of Buddhism and modernity and what it means to be a human being at this time. Quote: “The relevancy of Buddhism is probably overestimated by those who are really in love with it.” Episode 7 – Vincent Horn (49 minutes) RSS http://www.thenakedmonk.com/2014/01/11/vince-horn/
