NATURE: The Ghost Roost
BBC Radio 4, Tue 17 Jan 11.02, rpt Thur 19 Jan 21.02
More than ten years ago, sound recordists Chris Watson and Thor McIntyre-Burnie recorded the sounds of tens of thousands of starlings when they came into roost for the night in the derelict remains of the concert hall on the West Pier in Brighton. Today the West Pier no longer exists, having been destroyed by storms and fire, what remains are the sounds of a Ghost Roost.
