SIFTER for the Ear presents:

Driving Madeleine takes a charming cab ride with a 93-year-old woman headed to her nursing home. Christian Carion is the director of the film, which goes deeper into drama than expected. He talked with me from Paris:
– Transitioning from being a farmer to a director
– How the friendship of Dany Boon and Line Renaud helped during the shoot
– Line sang “Relaxez-vous” with Dean Martin in Las Vegas
– Shooting the cab scenes in “The Volume” (new technology)
– Casting the younger version with different color eyes
– Shooting the flashbacks in a reference to American films
– How he used Barnard Herrman’s music to set the mood
– The dance sequence that ends the film
– Showing Spielberg’s DUEL at the screening of his movie

Brain Box presents:

In this episode, we meet the Science Museum of Virginia’s David and Jane Cohn Scientist, Rose Basom. Rose is a biological anthropologist (you’ll learn what that is) and she talks us through some recent studies that show how genes can express themselves in our behavior, and the distant origins of some of those genes. Tune in – you might learn some things about yourself!

 

To learn more, visit the Smithsonian Institute’s website on human origins.
