Ancient Journey

In today’s pro­gramme, we’ll be tak­ing a musi­cal jour­ney through ancient lands, from Greece and Rome, to the Amer­i­c­as, the South Pacif­ic, Antar­ti­ca – and even the Moon.

Guid­ed by the ancient Piri Reis Map (above), thanks to the E S Posthu­mus album Car­tog­ra­ph­er, we’ll touch the shores of Antar­ti­ca with Vaugh­an Williams, ancient South Amer­i­ca with Cus­co, the South Pacif­ic with Jalan Jalan, the Sev­en Won­ders of the Ancient World with Stu­art Mitchell, and the land of the Cathars with Chris­t­ian Sales. We’ll even vis­it the Moon with both Lau­rie John­son and Mannheim Steam­roller, and dis­cov­er ancient peo­ples with Hans Zim­mer. We’ll vis­it mag­i­cal islands and strange unchart­ed seas. And, of course, a great deal more. The music is large­ly, but not exclu­sive­ly, instru­men­tal, with con­ven­tion­al and elec­tron­ic instru­men­ta­tion. We do hope you enjoy the jour­ney.

Zee­ber Gold: Jour­ney to the East

And don’t for­get to join us for the lat­est in our series Zee­ber Gold at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic (7pm and 3am UK time). This time it too is a jour­ney: a Jour­ney to the East, in which a young man, record­ed in 1968, talks about his trav­el in the Ori­ent, his expe­ri­ences in Nepal and Kat­man­du. “What’s Kat­man­du like? Can you imag­ine a head’s Dis­ney­land?” He also explains how var­i­ous types of hashish are made and tells of his expe­ri­ences as an inter­na­tion­al hashish smug­gler. Wrought with visu­al images, enter­tain­ing and edu­ca­tion­al… not to be puffed at light­ly. Hear­ing his extra­or­di­nary expe­ri­ences in Kab­ul, Afghanistan, and con­trast­ing it with today’s events, makes one won­der how things have become so screwed up. Life seemed so sim­ple back then.
