The BBC have just announced ………………….
“The BBC World Service (Radio) is launching a new daily history programme at the end of October. It’s to be called Witness and will focus on the memories and testimonies of people who lived through historic events. We’ll mix those testimonies with material from the BBC’s audio archive – to tell personal stories on air.
Not just the war, but scientific discoveries, social changes, sporting events, art, fashion… really we’re interested in hearing from anyone who has a story to tell.
Obviously, as the international arm of BBC radio we’ll be talking to people all over the world but we don’t want to neglect the UK.”
