Things on Radio 4 that you may have missed:
- Crossing Continents: Thembi’s AIDS diary. Incredibly moving, particularly the part when Thembi tells her father that she has AIDS.
- Forging the Union. Alan Little’s excellent history of the European Union which shows how, by dragging her heels and hanging back, Britain has always found herself disadvantaged in the EU.
- Linda Smith – A Modern Radio Star. I miss hearing Linda Smith as much as I miss John Peel.
Radio 4 is, I think, producing some of the best programming I have ever heard right now. Whatever would we do without Radio 4?
UPDATE: I forgot to include:
- Unseen China. I don’t normally enjoy Peter White’s radio style (I remember when he was on South Today, 15-odd years ago), but this series is excellent.
