  5. Titanic - In Her Own Words

    To mark the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, the BBC’s Sean Coughlan narrates one of the most authentic versions of events in existence. Using voice synthesis to re-create the strange, twitter-like, mechanical brevity of the original Morse code, this programme brings to life the tragedy through the ears of the wireless operators in the area that night.

    On the night of the disaster, the network of young Marconi wireless operators on different ships and land stations frantically communicated with each other across the cold expanses of the North Atlantic in an effort to mount a rescue for the doomed vessel.

    All these messages were recorded at the time in copper-plate handwriting, now scattered across the world in different collections, but together forming a unique archive.

  6. Umberto Eco | The Prague Cemetery

    Umberto Eco’s new book, The Prague Cemetery is "a novel that takes the power of fakery in history to new heights," according to the Times Literary Supplement. "This work of teasing historical pseudo-reconstruction combines an intriguing philosophy of history with an elaborate set of reflections on narrative and the nature of fiction." The author of five bestselling philosophical novels, including The Name of the Rose, Foucault’s Pendulum, and The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana, Eco is a medievalist and semiotician at the University of Bologna in Italy.

  9. Think You Know ‘How To Write A Sentence’? : NPR

    Most people know a good sentence when they read one, but New York Times columnist Stanley Fish says most of us don’t really know how to write them ourselves. His new book, How To Write A Sentence: And How To Read One, is part ode, part how-to guide to the art of the well-constructed sentence.
