There are things we simply can’t be without, genuinely beloved items: holiday souvenirs, heirlooms, things we’ve carried around with us for a long time, mementos and rare collectors’ pieces. But many of these treasures have seen better days, perhaps they’re looking a bit worn, or maybe they’re even broken. They don’t really fit in to the general décor and are left somewhere to gather dust. But there’s no question of throwing them out!


Favourite Things – marked by life, loved by their owners – in ten 45-minute programmes for SWR, we cast them in a totally new light.
