To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Between the Ears, the award-winning Radio 3 showcase for adventurous feature-making, has commissioned Shadowplay – a ‘symphony of voices’ in four movements, each by a different group of feature-makers.
The first movement – Theme and Variations: What We Value by Alan Hall and Hana Walker-Brown – was broadcast on Saturday, October 5.
I was one of several people interviewed for the programme; others included the economist and author Ha-Joon Chang, the life-model Sue Tilly, and the poet Jazzman John Clarke. Out of these interviews, Alan and Hana have spun a marvellously evocative meditation on the nature of value.
I will be listening out for other features from their production company, Falling Tree.
