Travel Writers Talk on BBC Radio 3...

BBC Radio 3 has been all about travel writing this week. Check out the audio essay series featuring four travel writers discussing great works of British travel literature.

11 June - William Dalrymple discusses Fanny Parkes and her book on India

12 June - Tahir Shah looks at Bruce Chatwin’s The Songlines

13 June - Colin Thubron focuses on Robert Byron’s The Road to Oxiana.

14 June - Joanna Kavenna talks about Louis MacNeice and WH Auden's Letters from Iceland (check here for when available)

Each audio essay only available for seven days from it’s initial broadcast so you have to get in quick….sounds like the perfect way to relax over the weekend.
