Through a series of ‘headphone walks’ and reflective interviews with musicians and filmmakers, Richard King listens closely to Britain’s rural landscapes and the compositions of musicians inspired by its beauty and drama.

His journey takes him from the west coast of Wales to the Lothian Hills, from the Thames Estuary to the Suffolk shoreline, from Vaughan Williams to Brian Eno, Kate Bush to Boards of Canada, and ‘The Sinking of the Titanic’ to Greenham Common.

‘Illuminating, idiosyncratic and never less than fascinating.’ Melissa Harrison
