Bridging the Gap | BBC Radio 4 27th January 2010

BBC Radio 4, Wed 27 January at 11.02

The sounds of the river, the wind and the wildlife are combined with local voices to tell the story of the Tyne Bridge, which spans the River Tyne between Newcastle and Gateshead; providing a link between north and south, past and present. The Bridge is both an engineering triumph and an icon of the North East.
