BBC RA­DIO 3, AIRS CHRIST­MAS EVE

Ap­ply the brakes this Christ­mas Eve – sit down with a sherry and a roar­ing fire to spend three hours in com­pany of au­thor and jour­nal­ist Ho­ra­tio Clare, as he walks deep into a Ger­man for­est, rev­el­ling in the magic and mystery of his wild sur­round­ings. This is a ‘slow ra­dio’ walk and the last in­stal­ment in BBC Ra­dio 3’s re­cent Into the For­est sea­son. ‘Slow ra­dio’ is de­signed to help peo­ple es­cape the frenzy of life, of­fer­ing a “mind­ful ex­pe­ri­ence, a place, a haven, where peo­ple can lose them­selves in au­dio and sonic ex­pe­ri­ences.” As Ho­ra­tio wan­ders among the trees, lis­ten­ers can share his acute ob­ser­va­tions of the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment in real-time, tak­ing in all the sounds, signs and sen­sa­tions of an an­cient win­ter for­est.
