    On my list 👍
    This links to a different thread but if you like listening to stuff on BBC iPlayer are you familiar with ďIn Our TimeĒ?

    Itís been on every week for years and years now on R4. Melvyn Bragg presents it, he has three guests who are usually Oxbridge dons or similar and he takes a subject. Could be anything, the life of John the Evangelist, the rubber-sheet theory of the universe, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the fall of the Roman Empire, the fall of man in Miltonís ĎParadise Lostí.

    Bragg keeps things moving by asking very direct questions of his experts, who are clearly briefed to respond in an accessible manner. You come away feeling like youíve had an intellectual version of colonic irrigation.
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Never had the irrigation thing so don't know how accurate your comparison is, but R4's the cat's bollocks. Except The Archers and Wumman's Hour.

    Never had irrigation either, I was speculating

    R4 is good, I drive a lot with work and usually listen to R3 but will change to R4 if itís a piece of music I really dislike. Iíve stumbled across some absolute gems in the afternoon schedule, usually half an hour long.

    Also have got back into listening to the World Service. Used to go to sleep to it in my early twenties, a long time ago now. Itís gently reassuring. Iím getting old

    It’s been on every week for years and years now on R4. Melvyn Bragg presents it, he has three guests who are usually Oxbridge dons or similar and he takes a subject. Could be anything, the life of John the Evangelist, the rubber-sheet theory of the universe, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the fall of the Roman Empire, the fall of man in Milton’s ‘Paradise Lost’.

    Bragg keeps things moving by asking very direct questions of his experts, who are clearly briefed to respond in an accessible manner. You come away feeling like you’ve had an intellectual version of colonic irrigation.
    Sorry to take the thread off topic, but some of the stuff on iPlayer radio app is really worth listening too. I’m a bit of a technophobe, but we sometimes forget just how good radio can be.

    I listen to The Archers when I'm washing up. It's great.
