Just curious

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.

About me:

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 .
