Happy Father's Day to those celebrating around the planet. To mark the occasion I talk dads and doughnuts with Jack Lemmon - and we'll have a song for the season a little later tonight.
Meanwhile, Part Nine of our latest Tale for Our Time explores the consequences of an unmanned world - as conjured by H G Wells in 1895 in his futuristic classic The Time Machine. In tonight's episode the Morlocks come for Wells' Time Traveler:
I seemed just to nod and open my eyes. But all was dark, and the Morlocks had their hands upon me. Flinging off their clinging fingers I hastily felt in my pocket for the match-box, and—it had gone! Then they gripped and closed with me again... I was caught by the neck, by the hair, by the arms, and pulled down. It was indescribably horrible in the darkness to feel all these soft creatures heaped upon me.
