Hearts, Lungs and Minds

Saturday 21 June 2008 20:30-21:00 (Radio 3)

An experimental documentary by sound artist John Wynne, who spent a year as artist-in-residence with photographer Tim Wainwright at Harefield Hospital, one of the world's leading centres for heart and lung transplants.

Using recordings of patients, the devices some of them were attached to, and the hospital itself, the piece weaves together intensely personal narratives with the sounds of the hospital environment, exploring the experiences of transplant patients and the important issues raised by this invasive, last-option medical procedure.

Hearts, Lungs and Minds features the voices of patients and staff from Harefield Hospital and the programme maker would like thank all the staff and patients at the hospital and the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Trust for their understanding and support.

John Wynne was artist-in-residence at Harefield Hospital along with photographer Tim Wainwright and their photographic sound installation called 'Transplant' can be experienced at the Nunnery Gallery in London from the fifth of September.

Duration:

30 minutes
