Park Life

Poet Anjum Malik reflects on the historic Buile Park in Salford, considering the importance of parks in city life and what the place means to the city's different cultures.

Just before the BBC Philarmonic plays a Prom in the Park in Salford, the poet Anjum Malik brings to life the historic and beautiful Buile Park. Drawing on her own childhood picnics in the parks of Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Bradford, she reflects on the importance of parks in city life and what Buile Hill Park means to the different cultures of Salford. Walking in the footsteps of Lowry, this first person essay recorded on location defines what the city has lost and more importantly found.

Producer: Rebecca Stratford.
