Caught by the River

Roger Deakin on the Radio

30th September 2009


“I thought a lot of CBTR readers might like to hear Roger Deakin narrating a canoe trip down the Waveney which can be heard on a Radio 4 website – search cigarette on the waveney. And since birds are beginning to feature prominently, British Birds in Haiku is worth a look at the Wing Beats website

keep up the good work – it’s fantastic”.


It was good to get this mail from Chris Miles last week. I love the broadcast he talks about and I’ve not listened to it for ages. There were three in total, ‘Cigarette’, ‘The House’ and ‘Garden’. They were made by Sara Blunt for the BBC natural history unit and the sound recordist was Chris Watson. We put a link to them on CBTR back in December 2007 and it’s a pleasant surprise to find them still available. You can find them by clicking here.
