Bridging The Gap. Wednesday 27 January11.00-11.30am BBC RADIO 4

(The publicity blurb below brings back unhappy memories of that dreadful (in my opinion) evening at the Sage - "Tyne Soundings Live". However, in deference to local poet, jazz enthusiast and occasional contributor to this site, Dr. Keith Armstrong, who is involved in this enterprise and has drawn it to our attention, I have posted it. I am quite sure that, although totally jazzless, it will be an interesting program for those of us who lived, loved, laboured and listened within the shadow of the bridge. It may also serve to remind Keith that he still owes us one Lester Young inspired poem!)
Bridging The Gap is a vivid sound portrait of the Tyne Bridge. The programme draws on the voices and sounds of the bridge, the river, local people and wildlife, while exploring the history, construction and role of the bridge.
The bridge is hugely symbolic in the North East. As a giant arch, it reflects the changes that have taken place in the North East, including developments on the Tyne and overall changes in lifestyle. Today, wildlife has moved in; where the industrial giants of the past have moved out, salmon and otters can be found in the river. The bridge is also a nesting site for kittiwakes, a species of ocean-travelling gull. More than 150 pairs have been recorded here, making it the furthest inland breeding site of kittiwakes in the world.
Contributors to the programme include sound recordist Chris Watson; poet Keith Armstrong; Ian Ayris from Newcastle City Council; Steve Lowe of Northumberland Wildlife Trust; Steve Mays, architectural and landscape photographer; and Tommy Proctor, River Tyne guide. Producer/Sarah Blunt BBC Radio 4 Publicity.
