By BBC Local Radio

Three stories exploring the power of tuning in - from the buzzing of bees, to the shared thoughts of our friends.

Featuring the Kent man who has cycled around the UK collecting unique sounds and voices as he goes, in order to make a special piece of music.

The Listening Project brings two friends together in Scarborough, for an unexpected conversation about food and body image.

Plus the Devon doctor who learnt to lip read to treat his patients, after losing his hearing as a young man - and how a cochlear implant has made things a little easier all round.

Presented and produced by Becca Bryers

With contributions from: Nathan Moore and Bek Homer from BBC Radio York Michael Chequer from BBC Radio Devon
