Skylarking

Beautiful soundscape meditation on flying, the sky and freedom on BBC Radio 3. With contributions by Jim Mallinson of Himalayan Sky Safaris and the film Temples in the Clouds, also lecturer in Sanskrit and Classical Indian Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies.

Cathy FitzGerald meets a prisoner and a paraglider in this airy daydream about the delights of looking up at a big blue sky. Includes cameos from levitating yogis, labradors with wings and freewheeling angels, plus a specially composed score by Joe Acheson and the Hidden Orchestra.

Please note Skylarking is a lawn-based, horizontal radio feature best experienced from the comfort of a picnic blanket with a long drink, a soft pillow and a view of the sky.
