B.B.C. RADIO 4, 'THE NARROW ROAD TO THE DISASTER ZONE'

The Narrow Road To The Disaster Zone


The programme is about a recent visit to Tochigi, Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures in the north of Japan, tracing part of haiku poet Basho's Oku no Hosomichi route as much as possible, but presenting a contemporary, hopefully somewhat poetic, account of the present situation there.

The BBC describe the programme thus

In Japan, this becomes March 12 (Mon.), 01:30 and March 18 (Sun.), 08:30. Listen live here:  or listen during the week at your own convenient time on the i-player here.

The Narrow Road To The Disaster Zone


 Go to the A-Z strip and see if the programme is there under N for ‘Narrow’ (or type ‘Narrow Road’ in the search box at top right). The 28-minute feature should be available on that site for listening for at least one week; maybe more.
