Maing Talisker Graphic.

Tuesday November 15 and Wednesday November 16, 2011

At the time of year that includes both Remembrance Day and the International Day of Peace, we offer reflections on the cost of human conflict and the hope for lasting peace in the world. The works on this programme are the passionate responses of writers and composers to many different conflicts, both modern and ancient. They are an inspiring testament to the resilience of the human spirit.
