BBC Radio 3: Twenty Minutes
Broadcast: Saturday 13th September 2008 @ 7:40 p.m.
It is the morning after the Proms grand finalé and a woman wanders through a London park, musing about a very different type of
concert she attended at the Albert Hall 40 years before, when she was a young woman. When she discovers a forgotten mobile phone
among the rubbish, she scrolls through the menu, piecing together information and forming a picture of its owner - a young woman who
has a horse riding lesson later on that day. She contemplates tracking this stranger down and meeting up to find out what they both
have in common.
"The Park" is a story by celebrated author and screenwriter Deborah Moggach, written especially to mark the occasion of the 2008
Last Night of the Proms.
