Andy Kershaw returns to Radio 3

Presenter Andy Kershaw is returning to the BBC this autumn to present a travel series for Radio 3.

Music Planet sees Andy and fellow presenter Lucy Duran travel to remote destinations around the world to record the music there.

The series accompanies and visits the same destinations as BBC One's Human Planet, a new anthropological series celebrating man's remarkable ingenuity and success as a species.

The BBC says Music Planet will offer the chance to gain a deeper understanding of the cultures they witness on BBC One's Human Planet by experiencing their music, sounds and songs. 

Andy Kershaw says: "I am thrilled to be back on Radio 3 working again with a team of bright, imaginative, enthusiastic people who also happen to be dear friends.

Andy has been away from radio since his personal problems threw him in to the media headlines, which included a stint in jail on more than one occasion.
