We Only Want The Earth: Once Heard You Can't Unhear It

Presenter Jonathan Grimes joins composer and sound artist Robert Coleman on a soundwalk in the Belfast hills. Natalia Beylis, Ian Wilson and Gráinne Mulvey share how profoundly climate change is affecting them and influencing their work at local and global levels, and we ask if music can move us to positive action with Judith Ring.
