The Lake (repeat) | BBC Radio Ulster 5th April 2009

The Lake which was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4, is to be repeated on BBC Radio Ulster…

Sunday 5 April 13.30 -14.00.

A haunting and evocative sound portrait of Britain’s largest lake, Lough Neagh. With a shoreline measuring over 70 miles long, this vast stretch of water in Northern Ireland is more like a sea than a lake. Recordings made above and below the waves reveal a moody, stormy, wild and even dangerous place where legends of a buried town, a horse god and three sisters emerge from the shallows, whilst smoke-like plumes and huge flocks of birds rise from the surface as the seasons unfold.

Sound recordists: Chris Watson and Tom Lawrence
Producer: Sarah Blunt
