Writer Robert Macfarlane walks the length of the South Downs, exploring its chalk paths and its ghosts. He goes from Bramber Bank to Kingston Down.
Crossing from Bramber Bank to Kingston Down, in the company of the writer Rod Mengham, Robert Macfarlane considers the Aboriginal Australian concept of the 'songline', whereby walking, wayfaring, singing and folk memory become aligned. He explores some of the ways that landscapes can be sung into being - or en-chanted - and embarrasses a number of passers-by with his own performances. Producer Tim Dee.
