[Repeated from Monday 8pm.] Encounter Special: A House in a Japanese Garden. Imagine a mid-century modern house immersed in a Japanese garden, a building that broke all the architectural rules of the day and one that affronted the local planning committee. This is The New House at Shipton-Under-Wychwood, much celebrated in its day for being both exceptionally modern, yet magically not that different from the cow sheds of the surrounding Cotswold countryside where it was built. In 1962 Roy Stout and Patrick Litchfield designed the house for Barrister Milton Grundy, now in his 90s, who still lives there. In this Encounter Special, produced without narration but with natural sound and radiophonic-musical effects, John Escolme meets those who have lived and partied at the house, and the relatives and co-workers of the architects. To see images of the building, listen to the programme again, and hear other programmes in the Encounter series go to: www.monitorproductioninsound.eu.
