Sense of Place
Andrew Marr discusses sense of place with singer Ian Bostridge, artist Victoria Crowe, writer Philip Marsden and lecturer Joanne Parker.
Andrew Marr discusses why we react so strongly to some places, look for meaning in them and build up stories about them over time. Joining him in the studio are author and travel writer Philip Marsden who has been exploring Cornwall with Sense of Place in mind; Scottish artist Victoria Crowe who's been returning to paint the Pentland Hills for thirty years; singer Ian Bostridge who's performing and analysing Schubert's Winterreise; and lecturer Joanne Parker on the maps we make in our minds, as we draw together places that have the most meaning to us.
Producer: Simon Tillotson.
Joanne Parker is a Senior Lecturer in Victorian Literature in the Department of English at the University of Exeter.
