Presented by Luke Clancy, Skelligs Calling offers a sonic portrait of Skellig Michael in the company of world-renowned recordist, Chris Watson. Surveying the sounds of this UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site, Chris captures the gurgling of Storm Petrels – who nest at the island’s monastic summit – and the raucous music of Manx Shearwaters as they swarm around Christ’s Saddle in the dark. Producer: Kevin Brew.
