Three Cane Whale tune up with Emma Lazenby
Emma describes the making of History of an Orange using animation techniques from the 1970s, when the car was built. She also tells us what brought her to Bristol and about her work with ArthurCox with whom she made her BAFTA award winning film Mother of Many inspired by her mother’s long career as a midwife.
Three Cane Whale, whose debut album was named recently as one of Cerys Matthews’s top five modern folk albums, perform music never recorded before, including the soundtrack to History of an Orange and Elsie and Ruby, dedicated to the two lucky children who survived being thrown off the Clifton Suspension Bridge by their father.
Paul Bradley makes us up a song and reads a poem by Ellen’s dad, Mike Hughes, written on the tiles of the hydrotherapy pool room at the Bristol Royal Children’s Hospital.
