Welcome to Culture Pickings, a place of inspiration and contemplation.
Collections of things to watch, read and listen – usually arranged by topical theme.
And some inter-cultural ponderings and wonderings.
Also look out for arty happenings and things to go see.
Views are my own and unpaid.
For stimulation…for delight…for you.
I was a Radio and TV programme maker (mainly for BBC1 and BBC2).
Now I am an academic, a lecturer, a story-fier. I have watched and read and traveled a lot but there is always more to see. I believe that the arts make the world a much better place. And I constantly marvel at other people’s talents. I want to share with you the wonderful work I’ve found.
My musings are mainly about culture, literature, film and tv, biography and ballet… I hope you will enjoy them .
