One of the most painless ways to sort out the good from the not so good at the Festival will be Radio Scotland‘s daily Festival View Mon 10—Fri 28 8.40am (not Sats or Suns). repeated at 1.40pm forlate risers. It will include International Festival reviews. Fringe round-ups and interviews. chiefly looking at shows which have opened the night before. The first programme on Mon 10 has a suitably Russian theme with reviews of Gorky Theatre of Leningrad‘s History ofa Horse and Sivcrko. the high-leaping. beautifully-costumed folk dancers from Archangel on the icy north coast. International Festival shows on Tue 11 include Juno and the Paycock by the Gate Theatre. Dublin and Raun Raun Theatre Company.

coverage. It starts on Mon 10. 9.45pm with

a preview presented by Guardian theatre critic Joyce McMillan and continues that week with an interview with Mark Ermler conductor of the Orchestra ofthe Bolshoi Theatre on Wed 15. 9.45pm.
