Landscape and Community // Start the Week, BBC Radio 4

A fascinating episode this morning, with guests including Patrick Keiller discussing various aspects of urban landscapes.

Bridget Kendall talks to Patrick Keiller about the relationship between film, cities and landscape, and uncovers the hidden stories of the places where we live. Victoria Henshaw is interested in what our cities smell like, and what we lose when we sterilise our environment. The poet Robin Robertson has written about the bleak, remote island of St Kilda and how the remnants of its close-knit community left together in 1930. The importance and difficulty of creating a sense of community is at the heart of Giles Fraser’s new series which asks whether we’ve become merely nostalgic for a bygone age of close neighbourhoods, or whether it’s possible to reconstruct them.
