The Wild Isles
Patrick Barkham, Kapka Kassabova, Esther Woolfson and Amanda Thomson

Sponsored by Charles Stanley

1pm – 2pm BST*

In The Wild Isles, Patrick Barkham has gathered together a wide array of the very best of British and Irish nature writing, characterized by an arresting diversity of moods and voices. His choices are arranged under themes that range from birds, woods and coastlines to childhood, the seasons and urban nature, and juxtapose extracts from much-loved classics with passages by contemporary writers such as James Rebanks and Helen Macdonald. Here the reader will find joyful celebrations of landscape and the wildlife it nurtures, probing explorations of the environmental problems facing us today, as well as the fresh and vital perspectives of writers from underrepresented backgrounds. 'If British and Irish nature writing is to grow and endure,' writes Barkham in his introduction, 'it must be diverse, complex, multi-faceted and dynamic, and relevant to everyone who lives on this land.'
Patrick will be joined in this session by three of his contributors, Kapka Kassabova, Esther Woolfson & Amanda Thomson.

*This performance is live and will be available to watch for three weeks after the broadcast date to accommodate different time zones.
