The Island of Secrets

Evans, P (2009) The Island of Secrets. BBC Radio 4, 25 March 2009.

Item Type: Performance
Creators: Evans, P
Abstract: Haunting sound portrait of Orford Ness in Suffolk, Europe's largest vegetated shingle spit. Writer and narrator Paul Evans and wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson explore this wild and remote extremity of eastern England, which is also the site of secret cold war military testing. It is an unsettling landscape where the wind howls, the sea sighs and hisses across the shingle, gulls screech, redshank cry in a morse code of alarms, railings whine and rattle, twisted metal clangs, doors crash and shadows flit.
