The Corncrake and the Croft
To the birdwatcher the Outer Hebrides are renowned as a place to see the rare corncrake or the black-throated diver ... to the more casual visitor they are a place of wild beauty and savage weather. But to the crofters they are a tough home from which to harvest a living through basic agriculture and fishing.
The irony of the place is that, although the crofters are almost unaware of their unusual bird neighbours, their small fields and ancient techniques preserve the habitat on which the birds depend. However, in 1966, the crofters and landowners agreed with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds to set up the Balranald Reserve.

Charles Rosen plays
Beethoven's 33 Variations on a theme of Diabelli
In the second of two programmes to mark the 150th anniversary of Beethoven's death, the outstanding American pianist and writer CHARLES ROSEN introduces and plays the famous set of variations written by Beethoven on Anton Diabelli's little waltz theme. The last of his major works for piano, the 33 variations span every mood from ethereal beauty to coarse humour, and in many ways are a summary of Beethoven's art.
