Emily Orley weaves a story about x-rays, emigration and what it means to remember with an assortment of old slides, three cassettes, a record player and a desk lamp.
In 27 fragments (because there are 27 bones in the human hand) she pieces together the unusual life of her grandfather and the birth of radiology to recount a tale of travelling, of bones become visible, of lighting and searching shadows.
Ages 12+. 1 hour. In the BT Studio. £10.
