BBC World Service.

Ooh so excited! TBH has managed to install a link to the BBC so that I can listen to the World Service on the blog. How amazing is that? Choices of news, documentaries and so much more...

Scroll down the blog and you'll find the link just under TBH's Twitterings.

This morning I have indulged in 'The Archers', the quintessential English radio soap. Made me realise how long it is since I last listened, many of the characters have aged beyond belief! Phoebe, last known to me as a babe in arms is now a truculent schoolgirl and Jill Archer is about to celebrate her 80th birthday. Cripes.....

PS. Both TBH and I recently read 'The Poisonwood Bible' by Barbara Kingsolver. It's a fascinating novel that centres on the culpability of western Colonialism in Africa. The BBC World Service is currently broadcasting an audience with the author that makes for interesting listening.It will be available to listen to for the next six days. I recommend it to you.
