This hour we celebrate the ethereal, Dickens-inspired works of British producer Cathy Fitzgerald.

Skylarking [Excerpt] by Cathy Fitzgerald [Sound Design by Joe Acheson] ( Between the Ears , BBC Radio 3, 2014) Cathy FitzGerald meets a prisoner and a paraglider in this airy daydream about the delights of looking up at a big blue sky. **Please note Skylarking is a lawn-based, horizontal radio feature best experienced from the comfort of a picnic blanket with a long drink, a soft pillow and a view of the sky.

How to Dig a Grave [Excerpt] by Cathy Fitzgerald (BBC Radio 4, 2014) Gravediggers exist in the popular imagination as a creepy, ghoulish breed. We keep them safely at a distance where they can carry the weight of our fantasies and fears about death. But what's the reality? And what lessons are there to learn six feet under the ground?

The Cabinet of Animosities [Excerpt] by Cathy Fitzgerald and Matt Thompson ( The Documentary , BBC World Service, 2012) The Museum of Broken Relationships in Zagreb exhibits objects left behind at the end of love affairs. In this audio-guide for radio we hear tales of love won and lost, told through the things we give, the things we treasure, and the things we fling at one another when it all goes wrong.
