[edit] Leonardo da Vinci - The Anatomist

Art critic Alastair Sooke heads to the new Leonardo da Vinci exhibition at The Queen's Gallery in the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh. The show from the Royal Collection will reveal the startling accuracy of the master's anatomical drawings - artwork which lay undiscovered for hundreds of years. They include a series of 18 mostly double-sided sheets known collectively as the Anatomical Manuscript A, on which Leonardo crammed more than 240 meticulous drawings and some 13,000 words of notes in his unmistakeable mirror-writing. These anatomical studies are shown alongside state-of-the art modern medical imagery. Alastair will delve into the sketches and examine the 3D films, CT and MRI scans in order to uncover just how close the Renaissance genius got to the truth of what lies under the skin. The tragedy of Leonardo's anatomical investigations is that he never got around to publishing them. If he had done so, his work could have transformed the history of our medical knowledge.

[edit] Funny Women

Sue Perkins explores the highs and lows of being a woman in the unashamedly macho world of stand-up comedy. With unique behind-the-scenes access to the most important date in the stand-up comedy calendar, Sue discovers the thrills of a good gig and the spills of a disparaging review as she follows three stand-up comedians at the Edinburgh Festival: Bridget Christie, Claudia O'Doherty and Dana Alexander. Also featuring interviews with Jo Brand, Lucy Porter, Jo Caulfield, Andi Osho and Shappi Khorsandi; Sue finds out how her fellow female stand-ups got hooked on comedy and why they keep taking the knocks and coming back for more.

[edit] Happy Birthday Traverse

Born in a former brothel in 1963, the Traverse Theatre is one of the most exciting venues for new writing in Britain. Now in its 50th year, its full-throttle programme of shows from around the world packs in audiences from morning to night throughout the festival. Sue Perkins goes behind the scenes with artistic director Orla O'Loughlin to see how it all comes together, and celebrates the theatre's fascinating history, from underground notoriety to a leading light in the vibrant Scottish theatre scene.
