Program 1537: Tales of the Riverbank (November 08, 2012)  Week 45

Rivers run through many of our well-loved and best-known landscapes.  Their quiet banks and neglected docksides are now often the focus of rural rediscovery urban regeneration.  Music, old and new, celebrates our rivers as sources of life and of timeless inspiration to song-makers.
