Curled up beside the radio

One of the best things about being on holiday (and long car journeys) is the chance to listen to the radio properly instead of settling down to listen to a programme and realising after 30 minutes that you’ve become engrossed in a project and missed the damn thing.

There have been some cracking programmes on this week but I’ll just point you to three before I get off to bed:

The People’s D-Day, moving accounts of ordinary people caught up in the planning of D-Day.

Front Row on Thursday night:

George W Bush has provoked more artistic hostility than any previous first-term President. With guests including film director Jonathan Demme, dramatist David Hare and satirist Rory Bremner, Mark Lawson examines anti-Bush movies, documentaries, novels, plays and jokes and why most American voters ignored them.

I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue. A brilliant way to take your mind off what’s happening in the world.

Want to find some interesting programmes? It’s always worth going to the Radio 4 Listen Again page and taking pot luck.

    Have you noticed how when you find something interesting on the radio in the car, you always reach your destinaion 10 minutes before the end of the programme/interview (listen again is great for that) but on a long journey the programmes will be really boring (solved by borrowing books on cds from the library).

    Absolutely! And especially 3 minutes before the dum-dee-dum moment in the Archers…
