Words and Music
From the Yorkshire moors of Emily Bronte, and the travels around Britain of Jini Reddy, to the Paris city streets paced by George Sand as she carved out her freedom to live an unconventional life as a writer, from the fearlessness of Little Red Riding Hood in the Brothers Grimm story and Stephen Sondheim's musical Into the Woods to the endurance of Robyn Davidson crossing the Australian desert with a camel: today's programme looks at women walking alone, at this impropriety in earlier centuries and at rebels who strode out unchaperoned, those walking alone in life, the female flaneuse and women adventurers. Nina Sosanya and Natalie Simpson are the readers and music comes from composers and performers including Fanny Mendelssohn, Cecile Chaminade, Sofia Gubaidulina and Eliza Carthy among others.
