For twelve long years since the release of her The Red Shoes album, Kate Bush's hungry legion of fans were drip-fed scraps of information about her new projects.

The famine ended with the release of Aerial in 2005.

A double album of breath-taking scope and beauty, it soon established itself as a contemporary classic, ranking alongside Kate's best work such as Hounds of Love.

In Talking With Kate, Mark Radcliffe connects directly with the reluctant genius who composed this great album.

The programme is a beautifully-crafted conversation with an iconic woman who rarely talks publicly about her life and work.
