The Society’s Journey of a Lifetime award, in partnership with BBC Radio 4, offers a £5,000 grant for an original and inspiring journey anywhere in the world, plus training in field recording from the BBC and the chance to share your experiences through a radio documentary.
This summer, Nicole Bennett-Fite spent six weeks travelling around the small Central Asian republic of Tajikistan and visited the remote Yagnob Valley, home to the last speakers of the Yagnobi language. This Monday, you will be able to hear her documentary on BBC Radio 4 at 8.00pm, and after can catch-up on BBC iPlayer.
