Proms Literary Festival: Urban Safari

Matthew Sweet goes on urban safari with travel writers Iain Sinclair and Robert Macfarlance. Iain is a chronicler of London and south east England, while Robert sought out the UK's remaining wildernesses for his latest book. They discuss their favourite passages of writing about the urban landscape and how they try to evoke in their writing the wilderness and nature that they say can be found even in our most crowded cities.
