"The voice of middle England is in my head, drilled there by years of Radio 4 as I was growing up and now that I'm grown up. Radio 4 in the background, Radio 4 in my background, Radio 4 over dinner, swallowing it down, keeping it down. I don't even hear it any more, like the silence between the pips. Home Correspondent is a long-overdue forced regurgitation."
Home Correspondent is a real-time solo broadcast. Over 90 minutes, Hester Chillingworth listens to Radio 4 live through headphones, attempting to repeat aloud everything, as it is heard.
Designed as a durational piece – with a full length version that is 19 hours and 40 minutes, from the 05:20 shipping forecast until the end of the 00:48 shipping forecast – this 90 minute instalment is an experiment at adapting the work for theatre contexts.
