Making Contact – Sounding the Alarm: Noise Pollution

Noise pollution is a growing problem. Affecting everything from the lives of people living under airplane flight paths, to marine life. On this edition, we’ll hear from people struggling to be heard over the din of our noisy modern life and ask, is there anywhere left in the world you can get some peace and quiet?
