Audio Documentaries and Features


Can a year’s worth of radio be condensed into less than an hour? Lynne Truss does, with the help of a nightingale singing to a cello. An elephant tickling some ivories. A Mongolian thunderstorm throws listeners right across the kitchen, and we will learn the meaning of friendship, being from Yorkshire, and growing chrysanthemums.
