From heel to toe

Bob Hill and Katie Burningham, dancing. (BBC)
BBC Radio 4 and Falling Tree Productions present "Heel, Toe, Step Together", an amazing documentary about the encounter between the 86-year-old Bob Hill, a passionate dancer for all his life, having won many competitions with his late wife Iris, and the 28-year-old radio producer Katie Burningham, a self-confessed bad dancer.

The outcome? Dancing lessons, and a blossoming friendship bridging generations. "Heel, Toe, Step Together" is a compelling piece about the power of waltzing, about loss and loneliness, about love and life.
