December 21st is the darkest time of year, the winter solstice, and this year it was also one of the wettest. Following on from Radio 4's very successful One Day in Summer, six producers set out from Bristol to follow another set of characters - travellers, farmers, druids. All are travelling, setting out in the dark, but their various destinations may not be immediately clear. The run up to Christmas is a time of preparation and stress, but we expect some our travellers to have other festivities in mind. With contributions from the police, English Heritage, farmers David Johnson and Hugh Morrison, Lou Purplefairy, Arthur Pendragon, plus Lister and his friends from Leeds.
The producer is Miles Warde.
