ARIEL & PROSPERO

"I’ve always wanted to play a Shakespearean role – even if this Ariel is stuck on a building.”
Prospero and Ariel stand over the entrance to BBC Broadcasting House as a metaphor for broadcasting.
Prospero was a magician and scholar - and Ariel a spirit of the air, in which radio waves travel.
