A series of ten radio programmes on the subject of music, in which the listener travels on a 'journey through time', from the earliest Stone Age, moving through the centuries to the present day. In addition to experiencing a wide variety of musical concepts and styles, the children will also absorb an understanding of life at different periods of our history.

The series is very local in flavour, and in each programme the children will listen, interpret sounds, learn to identify musical elements and perform theme related songs.

The series is closely linked to the Northern Ireland Curriculum Programmes of Study for Key Stage 2 (Listening, Composing and Performing), and also includes a range of other curriculum subjects such as History, English, Science and Geography.

**The series is 'user-friendly' to non-specialists, but also stimulating to specialists**
