Will Gregory and his Moog Orchestra, Truro Cathedral Choir, The Changing Room

Sean Rafferty presents live from Goonhilly Earth Station in Cornwall. Guests include Will Gregory and his Moog Orchestra, Truro Cathedral Choir and folk group the Changing Room.

It's the grand finale to Radio 3's 70-day celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the Third Programme! Sean Rafferty presents a special edition of In Tune live from Goonhilly Earth Station in Cornwall. Set amid beautiful Cornish countryside, and not far from the coast, the Goonhilly site is dominated by vast space satellite dishes, which have played a pioneering role in international communication, and looking to the stars.
Helping to launch Radio 3 into the future for another 70 years and far beyond, guests include Will Gregory (of Goldfrapp) with his suitably space-aged Moog Orchestra, members of the BBC Concert Orchestra, composer Graham Fitkin, boys and girls of Truro Cathedral Choir, and award-winning Cornish folk group The Changing Room.
