Some more joy from around the Public Broadcasting traps.
Now some comedic drama. J.B. Priestley was a chronicler of the mores of the north of England.
This is a great radio version of one of his classics “When We Are Married“.
Scandal overtakes a trio of married couples celebrating a shared anniversary.
It’s a slow burning comedy of manners. AND Australia and merinos get a mention early on !
Now from the incomparable National Public Radio a story about a path almost not taken. Imagine if the man who helped draft Martin Luther King Jr’s “I Have A Dream” speech had decided not to work with the civil rights hero.
Here’s more from “Fresh Air”
And finally some feisty politics. How’s this for REAL interviewing as Ireland staggers from crisis to crisis.
And RTE’s “The Week In Politics” has the most incredibly powerful opening titles to boot.
You don’t need to know the ins and outs of Irish politics to recognise that this is “top quality gear”.
