Sunday 3 August 08 Chat - James Fenton, Breathing

In Sunday's show I read the memorial poem by James Fenton which accompanies the recently dedicated Breathing sculpture atop BBC Broadcasting House in central London.
Breathing is a 10-meter high etched glass spire which lights up at 10pm each night to commemorate the international news journalists, drivers, interpreters and other team members who lose their lives in acts of war while upholding democracy and freedom of speech.
