Wildlife and arts broadcaster Lindsey Chapman chooses her BBC Radio highlights of the past seven days.
Wildlife and Arts broadcaster, Lindsey Chapman takes us on a roller coaster radio ride this week. From the ever expanding skyline to the precision of the horizontal line, life can move from microcosm to macrocosm in a matter of moments. And all the while, we're searching for our own little corner of existence, a sense of freedom, the place we call home. We travel to Edinburgh, India and America, via musical piranhas and the unexplained depths of the teenage brain... and we sensibly ask: is it sensible to be sensible? There's poetic praise for the shape shifting otter; the tragic story of Lein, one of Holland's hidden children; a poignant letter from a WW1 soldier, who dreams of a new pilgrim's way in No Man's Land; and the instruments and voices of the Minnesota Orchestra with a rousing miners' hymn.
