Chris Watson wins for The Wire (Radio 4) “Radio Personality of the Year” BPG 2012 Award

Broadcasting Press Guild Award for The Wire

The Guardian reviews the broadcast:


Sunday 2 January, 2011

Chris Watson visits The WIRED Lab project in Australia, which is inspired by the work of biomedical scientist and composer Alan Lamb, who has long been fascinated by the extraordinary sounds created when the wind and the weather interact with telegraph wires or fencing cables stretched across the landscape. Here, Chris not only meets Alan and his colleagues Sarah Last and Dave Burraston to find out more about the history and evolution of their work with wire structures, but also records for himself the music of the wires.
