Scientific content on "the life story of a wave" and the role of the oceans in climate change (heat and carbon dioxide uptake) as part of a mixed but primarily "arts" radio programme for Radio 4. My part was a series of excerpts based on edits of an interview with the producer Julian May in October 2022.

The programme was trailled by Radio 4 and broadcast twice in their schedule (Thursday 15th December 2022 at 1130; Monday 19th December at 1600) and available after broadcast on BBC Sounds.

The programme was featured as a Pick of the Day for Thursday 15th in the Radio Times.
