Podcast: Time is away - Derek Jarman - Prospect Cottage 1989

Last month, Derek Jarman's cottage and its marvellous garden were saved from a private buyer following the largest ever arts crowdfunding campaign. This NTS radio program draws on Jarman’s beautiful memoir, ‘Modern Nature’, to recreate one year in the dream life of his garden and the stark landscape that surrounds it.
