There are numerous articles about Mr. Battisti's doings. Most is in Italian or French. The best in English, however, is at Wikipedia.

A Turkish reality TV star was found dead in a hotel room of a suspected drug overdose. Serious questions are being raised as to whether such programs really are just harmless entertainment. Dorian Jones has more from Istanbul.

Coming up this week at the LSO you can learn to play the Balinese Gamelan!
