The High Line on the BBC

BBC Correspondent Jonathan Marcus was in New York a couple of weeks ago, and took a walk on the High Line with Robert.

He produced a 5-minute “From Our Own Correspondent” piece on the High Line, which was broadcast in the UK last week, and will be on the World Service in the coming days.

Besides the fact that it’s about the High Line, we love the simple, narrative format of this series — it’s reminiscent of the BBC’s beloved “Letter from America,” which was the longest running show in radio history. It’s thoughtful,  well-paced and unhurried — like a stroll in the park.
