New edition of “Conversations on a Bench”

Anna Scott-Brown Andrew McMillan FB

BBC Radio 4 at 9am and 9.30pm, August 29th: in the first programme of the latest series of Overtone’s Conversations on a Bench, Anna Scott-Brown talks to people who stop to sit beside her on a bench next to Manchester’s gay village, in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena bombing.

Throughout the programme, a specially commissioned work by poet Andrew McMillan draws on the voices and stories of those passing the time in Sackville Gardens.

The programme creates a glimpse of snatched moments, and the painful and beautiful stories people tell Anna Scott-Brown in this busy urban setting.
