‘The Listening Project’ A Collaboration Between BBC Radio 4 and The British Library Comes to D&G

Coming to a toon near you! D&G folks, fancy taking part in a lovely wee radio piece for Radio 4 and Radio Scotland, just you and your pal/ partner/ sister/ brother, anyone really, just you both shooting the breeze and we record it! Think of those conversations you’ve overheard in the pub or on a train (i have heard many as you know) that you wished you could hear the end of. Well now you can create your own wee moments for people to hear and look where you get to do it, in a cute wee caravan!

The Listening Project is a collaboration between BBC Radio 4 and The British Library. We record conversations between two people about something important to them both. This could be anything – a hobby, a shared memory or event, love, friendship, life’s big turning points… people talk about anything and everything! The whole conversation is archived in the British Library’s and a wee 3-minute version airs on Radio 4 and/or Radio Scotland. Here’s the website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01cqx3b
