But over the past decade, of course, it's taken on a whole world of meaning. September 11th is used as a kind of shorthand for everything from religious violence to a massive failure of global security. And the space where the World Trade Centre stood until that day has widely become known as Sacred Ground. In 2010, the CBC Radio program Tapestry decided to explore the idea of Sacred Ground, in a two part series.

And the Winner is John Le Carre Interview - Pt 2 Nov 1, 2011 | 55:29It was after the great success of "The Spy Who Came in From the Cold" that John le Carré devoted himself full-time to his writing. And he's had success after success, with many of his books made into movies - most recently, "The Constant Gardener" starring Ralph Fiennes. And although le Carré is now a an octogenarian, he certainly hasn't slowed down, publishing a new novel about every two years. In 2010, he published "Our Kind of Traitor", a novel that looks at Russian money laundering and its much broader political implications. In the summer of 2010, Writers and Company host Eleanor Wachtel went to see John le Carré at his home outside of Penzance in Cornwall, England. Mr. le Carré was so generous that what you'll hear today is the first of a two-part conversation - a Canadian exclusive. The interview with Mr. Le Carré won a Silver Medal at the New York Festivals.

And the Winner is A Portrait of Herbert Von Karajan - Pt 2 May 17, 2011 | 55:28Mr. Karajan was, perhaps, the most famous and powerful conductor of the past century. Born in Austria, he led the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra for 35 years. He also worked with the Vienna Philharmonic and the Salzberg Festival, to name but two. But he was also known for his drive for perfection in both performing and in recording. Karajan is one of the most recorded conductors in history, with record sales in the hundreds of millions. Part of the reason for this was his insistence on having the best sound possible for his listeners. Such was his drive for perfection in sound that he played a key role in the development of compact disc technology.
