This week we consider the glacier, a force of nature whose pace is so deliberate as to define slowness of movement yet whose disappearance is so rapid we may never truly know its relationship to the planet and ourselves.
The chillout this week includes Bersarin Quartett, Dream LAX, Chris Martin, Sirk, Corwin Trails, Idyllic, The Dandelion Council and The Serendipitous Cacophonies. I'm Jim Nye.
We'll begin in Germany with the Bersarin Quartett who warn of the melting with 'Es kann nicht ewig Winter sein'
