as Shock Waves (BBC Radio 4, last night) was presented and narrated by sitarist Anoushka Shankar interviewing fellow musicians in the process who discuss how they adapted and spooled into creativity during Lockdown. In the programme Anoushka talks about her late father Ravi's challenges in the 1940s when he faced tumultuous change as India embarked on independence.

Guests include Alev Lenz, Nubya Garcia and Seán Doherty. The Garcia sections are best, Anoushka describing how hearing the saxophonist in a socially distanced Barbican last year sent soundwaves through her whole body. Excellent radio.
