Proms interval talk: A Walk in the Darent Valley

An account of a classic English summer walk in a thunderstorm. This talk accompanies a concert which has landscape and the spirit of adventure at the heart of it, in the work of Anthony Payne and Vaughan Williams. The acclaimed novelist and nature writer Melissa Harrison explores our relationship with the weather, as she follows the course of a thundery rain shower deep in the Kent countryside.
