The Labeque Sisters
When Katia Labeque recorded her album Little Girl Blue, it sent a shockwave through the musical world - it was jazz, and it was without her sister and duo partner Marielle. Joan Bakewell talks to the sisters about their different musical tastes and asks whether the ability to break free from each other is the sign of a healthy partnership rather than a faltering one.
With Richard Baker.
3: Iceland. No one knows for sure, but Iceland may be the island described by the fourth-century explorer
Pytheas as "Ultima Thule" - believed by the ancients to be the last land mass you would pass before you fell of the edge of the earth into whatever lay beyond. Its landscape of ice fields, lava beds, volcanos and hot springs provides a dramatic backdrop to the music produced by the island's inhabitants, which is, like the country that inspires it, freezing and boiling at the same time.
