Night of the Hunter

Episode 1 of 4

Jarvis Cocker follows a fox hunter, joins a soldier on a top secret mission and accompanies a young man nervously preparing for his first date.

Jarvis Cocker returns to Radio 4 with his award-winning feature series exploring the human condition after dark. Tonight is the 'Night of the Hunter' and Jarvis turns his eye to the starlit sky with his mind on hunters and their quarry.

Taking his bearings from Orion, he follows a lamper across farmland hunting foxes by torchlight. A soldier takes him on a top secret mission behind enemy lines when the hunter became the hunted. He accompanies a young man nervously preparing for his first date, in pursuit of love. And a party of friends go out on the pull in Hull, with mixed results.

Join him on an aural journey of the imagination as he tunes into the wireless night.

Producer Neil McCarthy
