BBC Radio Cumbria. A conversation with Helen Millican while we wandered on the shore at Parton: sandstones, slag, invertebrate animals, the former port, ships; and the business of writing, observing, and more: August/September 2020. (No longer available on BBC Sounds)

Part 1 was about the shore itself, Part 2 about writing, seeing, and the links between research science and creative writing .
