Sat 25 Jan - THE NEWS AGENTS - When Reporters Cross the Line

This episode we were delighted to have as guests Stewart Purvis and Jeff Hulbert ‘When Reporters Cross the Line; the heroes, the villains, the hackers and the spies’.
The book’s publication coincides with the start of the trials in September of British newspaper executives on charges of phone-hacking and making corrupt payments to public officials.
His first book (written with his research partner Jeff Hulbert) is based on a BBC Radio 4 documentary which he made in 2011.It is the latest step in his career which is already wide-ranging across journalism, management and regulation.
A fascinating discussion was flanked by a live musical improvisation and composition by Howard Jacques. Howard was joined by Jude Cowan Montague who selected phrases on the spot in the studio from the book by Jeff and Stewart.
Howard brought an amazing array of percussion with bowls and floor frame to the studio. He is familiar to Resonance listeners as one of the three Bermuda Triangle Test Engineers. with Melanie Clifford and Nick Wilsdon.

Rhône Nucléaire: Chasing the Dragon (8min 32s)
a film by Miyuki Kasahara & Calum F Kerr

In May 2013 Miyuki Kasahara and Calum F. Kerr walked various points along the ‘nuclear corridor’ of the Rhone Valley, France. Their experiences were recorded through sound and film and informed by local folklore. They traversed amongst others Marcule Nuclear Research Facility and Tricastin near Pierrelatte, one of the largest Nuclear plants run by major suppliers Areva and *EDF. This was part of the Decentrederspace residencies, based in Marseille, a yearlong exploration of Marseille-Provence, the European Capital of Culture 2013. http://decentrederspace.org/
