Sandford St Martin Award

    On Monday 3rd June 2013, we won the Sandford St Martin Premier Radio Award for our programme Hearing Ragas. What an honour!

 The Sandford St Martin committee wrote: "Hearing Ragas" made for BBC Radio 4, describes the near death experience of violinist Professor Paul Robertson; the India ragas he heard from within a coma, and the healing effect Sir John Tavener’s music had in his recovery.  Listeners and judges described it as ‘hugely thought-provoking’, ‘a fabulous, beautiful and meaningful piece’ – and listening to Paul accept his award, the audience was left feeling no different.
