  All Is Calm - The Story of the Christmas Truce
Posted by: CJB666 - 11-04-2018, 10:11 AM - Forum: Requests - No Replies


All Is Calm - The Story of the Christmas Truce

World War One

In All Is Calm, John Hurt tells the story of the most famous ceasefire in history, through diaries, letters and archive accounts from the soldiers themselves.

It is perhaps the perfect Christmas fable - of goodness vanquishing evil, if just for one day. And surely that's why the story is still told and wondered at a century later and remains so relevant as conflicts rage around the world. It has inspired music, poetry, films and even the occasional comic sketch.

So, as well as recalling the events of Christmas Day 1914, in the programme we'll also hear how a revival of interest in the story was inspired by the stage musical Oh ! What a Lovely War The Poet Laureate Carol Anne Duffy reads her poem about the events of Christmas Day 1914 and author Michael Morpurgo explains why they inspired him to write a story about the Christmas Truce for children.

In 1990, The Farm composed All Together Now, an anthem inspired by the events of 1914, and songwriter peter Hooton explains why he has re-recorded the song with English and German schoolboys to mark the centenary. And of course, that famous football match in No Man's Land was the setting for the video that accompanied Pipes of Peace, Paul McCartney's Christmas number one of 1983. It even inspired a memorable scene in an episode of Blackadder.

  The Now Show
Posted by: blitzkriff - 11-02-2018, 08:22 PM - Forum: Requests - Replies (3)

For years I have absolutely loved this BBC Radio 4 Comedy Show, hosted by Steve Punt and Hugh Dennis.  Most of the old stuff is impossible to find anywhere now.

Can anyone seed any seasons of the Now Show pre Season 53 (the current season)?  I'd love to hear it again.  I will gratefully re-seed, and I am archiving (and will seed) Season 53 as soon as it has completed!

A spoof chat show series starring Griff Rhys Jones and Graeme Garden. I have series 2, 3 , and4 but not all episodes are complete so a full set would be much appreciated, and, of course, series 1.

  The Crossing Of Herald Mountjoy - Rose Tremain
Posted by: NVNL - 10-19-2018, 05:49 AM - Forum: Requests - No Replies

If anyone can post Rose Tremain's The Crossing Of Hearld Mountjoy I'd be very grateful. It's a fifteen minute reading which the BBC doesn't repeat often enough in my view.

Apologies for failing to upload anything at all, I just cannot make the system work for me.

  Drama On 3, The Reality Tunnel (16-09-2018)
Posted by: PPotter - 10-18-2018, 05:41 PM - Forum: Requests - Replies (6)

Did anyone download the three Drama On 3 at Summerhall programmes from 16-09-2018?

iPlayer had them all mixed up, so the beginning of the 3rd drama, The Reality Tunnel, was on the END of the 2nd drama, The Blackwood.

Alas, I edited them in order.... so my Reality Tunnel is incomplete. Anyone grab them?
