THE LYRIC FEATURE

Here Be Dragons

Medieval mapmakers supposedly marked the phrase 'Here be Dragons' on their maps to indicate the uncharted territories of the world where unforeseen perils might await the explorer. Today, it's considered a wry warning, a byword for all those roads you shouldn't go down, the things you really don't want to talk about because, well, that way danger lies. This week's Lyric Feature is a story of maps and dragons in a world where there is little or no uncharted territory left; where Google maps and GPS plot our every step. And there are no monsters? The programme considers our relationship with maps in this moment, as technology radically alters how we now navigate the world. It takes us from Ireland to Italy, New York to Australia's Northern Territory, from the past to an imagined future. With testimony from way finders, migrant artists and detectives our faith in maps is challenged as we explore how maps frame our perspective of other people and places and ask if maps can ever present a neutral undistorted view, especially now, as climate crisis, war and pandemic redraw everything.

THE SINGERS UPFRONT

Frank Sinatra

Frank Sinatra became an iconic pop singer in the 1940s, eliciting the kind of fan hysteria that wasn't seen again until Elvis Presley and the Beatles. He succeeded, as many didn't, to weather the advent of rock 'n' roll, going on to become widely popular as a singer in the middle ground of public taste. Tonight's programme concentrates on the less well-known material, sampling his huge output during the 1940s.
