AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Like The Sailor's Wife, by Catherine Duncan, this is a light-hearted programme designed for holiday listening. The scene moves from the mysteries of the Parisian cuisine to an entirely unorthodox evocation of the prophet Jonah as a fisherman of Marseille, touching on a large number of subjects on the way.'
