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.

This episode of Between the Ears was produced by Cathy FitzGerald and Matt Thompson. Original music and sound design by Joe Acheson (Hidden Orchestra), featuring clarinettist Tomas Dvorak and cellist Su-a Lee.
Skylarking is a Rockethouse Production for BBC Radio 3.
