Join this discussion between Dr Elin Jones, University of Exeter, and Dr Lucy Walker. Elin has published on shipboard soundscapes and maritime labour, arguing that the muttering, cheering and hissing of ordinary seamen formed a distinct culture of sonic protest at sea. Lucy is a specialist in the music of Benjamin Britten who wrote the opera Billy Budd, about mutiny in the Navy in the 1790s.

In association with Centre for Maritime Historical Studies, University of Exeter.
