Cuckmere: A Portrait

Ed Hughes -Composer
Cesca Eaton - Filmmaker

Score played live by The Orchestra of Sound and Light. For centuries the Cuckmere River has inspired artists, sheltered smugglers and preserved a host of rare wildlife as it charts a course through the evocative landscapes of southern England. Filmmaker Cesca Eaton and composer/conductor Ed Hughes trace the changing moods of the Cuckmere, from its source in the High Weald to the sea at Cuckmere Haven.

Environmentalism 2.0

Caroline Lucas discusses the future of the environmental movement with author Tony Juniper, whose new book, Rainforest, draws on his many years' experience as a frontline campaigner.
