Open Country

Radio 4's Open Country is a really interesting programme, sonically. You never ever hear anything like it on radio - people having a conversation while puffing and panting as they take a stiff walk up some hill or across some island.

It makes it seem kind of odd that all the other radio programmes in the world are so static and sedentary. I wonder if any other radio formats would suit that kind of delivery, where people have a conversation while walking along? Perhaps those programmes that review films and plays could conduct their reviews just as the presenters emerge from the theatre and try and find the night bus to get them home. That would add a nice hint of realism, and an interesting background. Hmm...
