A story about music, movement, and a method for combining them which became a cause celebre in Australia in the 1920s. The method known as eurhythmics might have had its heyday in the early decades of the 20th century, but through an extraordinary combination of events, agendas, influence and networking, it ended up being part of the lives of hundreds of school children into the 1940s and 50s.The eurhythmics movement originated in Switzerland, and became the basis for 20 years of schools radio broadcasts in which Australian children were encouraged to move -- creatively -- to music.This program features current exponents of eurhythmics in Australia, and new research that shows how it achieved the prominence that it did.Readings by Glenda Linscott,Brian Nelson and Hannah Roe
