Neil: Hello and welcome to On the Town, I'm Neil.

Helen: And I am Helen.

Neil: Hmmm… This is Helen who is wearing a very nice silk blouse, by the way … oh, yes, very nice indeed…

Helen: Oh, thank you. And it\'s very delicate… 這是我從杭州買回來的真絲襯衫,漂亮吧?It's my favourite top!

Neil: And it\'s very appropriate for this programme. We are going to talk about a cape and a 4-metre long scarf that are on display at the Victoria and Albert museum here in London. They are made from the silk of more than one million female golden orb-weaver spiders!

Helen: 啊!由蜘蛛spiders吐的絲做成的披風和圍巾?I'm terrified of spiders. 我都不知道蜘蛛能吐絲,而且是1百萬只蜘蛛的絲one million spiders!!!

Neil: Yeah, a lot of them! One of the two creators of the cape and scarf, Simon Peers, explained in an interview to a BBC reporter how it\'s done. He talks about the threads used to make the cape that is the colour of gold.

Simon Peers: This is the natural colour of the silk that comes from the golden orb spider that we collect in Madagascar and we extract the threads from the spider and then… the process is lengthy, as you can imagine, but to get eventually to produce this, which is an extraordinary cape.

Neil: Simon Peers says that the process is lengthy.

Helen: Lengthy 漫長的。要做成這么一件披風的確是很費工夫,a lengthy process. 因為蜘蛛的絲the threads from the spider 很細very thin. 要提取extract 也很不容易。我們都知道蜘蛛網spider web 一碰就破了。

Neil: And the spiders are very small. The BBC reporter Rebecca Jones was interested to know if the spiders were hurt during the process. Listen out for the way she asks Simon Peers this question that has often appeared about movies where we see animals on screen.

Helen: Yes, 在電影里我們經常看到:沒有任何動物在影片制作過程中受到傷害。英國人對動物保護 animal welfare 很重視。

Neil: Let\'s hear what Rebecca asks the co-creator of the spider silk cape.

Rebecca Jones: Obviously I've got to ask this question: were any spiders harmed in the making of this cape?

Simon Peers: We've avoided … we've totally ... we do everything to avoid harming the spiders.

Neil: So what did she ask?

Helen: 記者采訪是問 were any spiders harmed in the making of this cape? 有沒有蜘蛛在制作過程中受傷害,藝術家回答沒有。
