Between the Ears

on BBC Radio 3

The last of six experimental radiophonic features.
The Night Stairs. So many feet have passed up and down the flight of stairs that runs from the monks' dormitory to the transept of Bristol Cathedral that the stone looks like the waves of the sea. Joining the monks on parallel night journeys on all kinds of staircases are an astronomer, a stairmaker, a political prisoner, a nightwatchman, an old soldier, a police night-squad, a tower-block chorus, a historian and the Cistercian monks of Caldey Abbey.
Research, interviews and radio screenplay by Graeme Fife. Original music (performed by the BBC Singers conducted by Ronald Corp ) and sound composition by Steven Faux Producers Alan Hall and Piers Plowright
