A Map of Paradise

Saturday 24 May 2008 21:00-21:30 (Radio 3)

An impressionistic feature on the notion of paradise - lost, sought and found.

In 1442, a Venetian cartographer in 1442 firmly situated paradise at the most eastern edge of India. For a young film company location scout, it is indistinguishable from the beach at Applecross on the west coast of Scotland, whereas others recognise it in the English country garden at Sissinghurst, Kent. For one of the architects responsible for a new retail experience in Paradise Street, Liverpool, it can be glimpsed in the joy in existence he feels with each new dawn.
