Pick of the Week – BBC Radio 4

Wildlife and Arts broadcaster, Lindsey Chapman takes us on a roller coaster radio ride in BBC Radio 4’s celebrated radio review programme Pick of the Week

From the ever expanding skyline to the precision of the horizontal line, life can move from microcosm to macrocosm in a matter of moments. And all the while, we’re searching for our own little corner of existence, a sense of freedom, the place we call home. We travel to Edinburgh, India and America, via musical piranhas and the unexplained depths of the teenage brain… and we sensibly ask: is it sensible to be sensible? There’s poetic praise for the shape shifting otter; the tragic story of Lein, one of Holland’s hidden children; a poignant letter from a WW1 soldier, who dreams of a new pilgrim’s way in No Man’s Land; and the instruments and voices of the Minnesota Orchestra with a rousing miners’ hymn.
