BBC Radio 4 Tweet of the Day Paul Evans on the Raven 

BBC Radio 4 Tweet of the Day Paul Evans on the Raven  | Nature Writing for print and broadcast by Paul Evans | Scoop.it

In his final tale for Halloween, writer Paul Evans encounters a pair of ravens and reflects on their dark associations and their playful and ominous voices. Tweet of the Day has captivated the Radio 4 audience with its daily 90 seconds of birdsong. But what of the listener to this avian chorus? In this new series of Tweet of the Day, we bring to the airwaves the conversational voices of those who listen to and are inspired by birds. Building on the previous series, a more informal approach to learning alongside a renewed emphasis on encounter with nature and reflection in our relationship with the natural world. Producer: Sarah Blunt Photo: Michael Davey.

BBC Radio 4 Tardigrade 27 June 11.00 am

BBC Radio 4 Tardigrade 27 June 11.00 am | Nature Writing for print and broadcast by Paul Evans | Scoop.it
Tardigrade. First described in 1773 and so named because they resemble slow-moving bears, these microscopic animals are probably the closest thing to an alien we are likely to encounter. Capable of living without water and then being revived after 30 years, the Tardigrade or moss-piglet as they are also called, challenge our ideas about what defines life. And as if that wasn't enough, they are probably the cutest little creature you could hope to meet! Presented by Bret Westwood with special guests and interventions by nature writer Paul Evans. Producer Sarah Blunt.
