Earthsearch - James Follett
« on: September 25, 2015, 08:50:06 PM »
Has anyone been listening to this programme on Radio 4 Extra.  I think it was first broadcast back in the 90s - I seem to remember listening to it on World Service Radio when I was in Nepal.

Are your, or your friends'/relatives', garages, lofts or sheds full of unused DIY gear, sewing/knitting machines or fabric and haberdashery stuff?

I've listened to both this and Earthsearch II on 4 Extra.
Not bad sci-fi.
I think I've read the books as well.

I want, for my part only the little white rose of Scotland,
that smells sharp and sweet and breaks the heart."

I loved the books - never heard the radio version - will search it out.
Music is a means capable of expressing dark dramatism and pure rapture, suffering and ecstasy, fiery and cold fury, melancholy and wild merriment and the subtlest nuances and interplay of these feelings which words are powerless to express and which are unattainable in painting and sculpture.
