Sound Sculpture, BBC’s ‘Saturday Live’ programme

What I like about the British Media in general, and the BBC in particular, is that they’ll let just about anyone have a go at broadcasting if they have something reasonably interesting to say. I’d already appeared on the BBC’s From Our Own Correspondent  (twice) and on Excess Baggage (also twice – talking about Sinai and Palestine respectively). But on 30 June a rather different story was broadcast, on Radio 4’s Saturday morning programme, Saturday Live. This was part of their ‘Sound Sculpture’ series, where listeners pick a sound and describe what it means to them (great radio!).  So here’s my Sound Sculpture, which pops up around 12.30 minutes into the programme.
