Thank you to Hildegard Westerkamp for giving permission for 'Kits Beach Soundwalk' to be sampled for this work. (Brendan Rehill's piece)

Letter used in Fiona Sheil's piece was from Richard Burton  to Elizabteh Taylor

Siobhan wanted to add that when referring to James Baldwin as the author of the Invisible Man, she of course meant to say that it was written by Ralph Ellison. It's actually a book that she loves very much. That's my fault for giving her two glasses of red wine during the interview.
