New Nature Writing

Wednesday 28 July 2004 19:45-20:05 (Radio 3)

Evelyn Waugh satirised the British tradition of writing about the countryside which harped on about plashy fens and questing voles. And maybe he was right. Now, though, a new nature writing is emerging with informed observations blended with passionate prose. An occasional series throughout the Proms brings some of the best of these open air thoughts and fresh writing to Radio 3.

In Crow Country, by Mark Cocker.

A love affair with the Rook, Corvus frugilegus.

Duration:

20 minutes
