God Rest You Merry  The Story Of Christmas In Words (Vintage Beeb)

God Rest You Merry The Story Of Christmas In Words (Vintage Beeb)

Author: Chris Emmett Narrator: Andrew Cruickshank, The Saint Martin Singers, W. D. Kennedy-Bell Release Date: 01/01/2011

God Rest You Merry, a daily programme of readings and music for Christmas week, was first broadcast on the BBC Home Service in 1961 and has been repeated in various forms over the years since then. Now, with this recording, listeners can hear again the series of programmes as a whole, including some of their favourite poems and carols. The Saint Martin Singers date back to 1942, and owe their origin to a small band of fire-watchers at the church of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. Among the things which the Singers enjoy most, and have pioneered, are their programmes of music interwoven with poetry and prose to illustrate a theme, of which those you can hear on this record are examples in miniature. Christmas is always the most popular theme of all because the story of the Nativity has inspired the best in writers and musicians ever since St. Luke wrote the first narrative poem. Vintage Beeb: classic albums first available as BBC LPs, now available to download. This recording was previously released on LP in 1976.

Douglas Adams At The BBC Part 1

Douglas Adams At The BBC Part 1

Author: Chris Emmett Narrator: Simon Jones, Various Release Date: 01/12/2004

Simon Jones, who played Arthur Dent in ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’, presents a look back at the life and work of a writer who has captivated the imagination of millions. When Douglas Adams created ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ for BBC Radio 4, it was the genesis of a science fiction comedy legend. Yet his career at the BBC had begun in Light Entertainment, with contributions to ‘The Burkiss Way’, ‘Week Ending’ and other sketch shows of the time. He went on to script edit a series of ‘Doctor Who’, and to write a series of ‘Hitchhiker’ and ‘Dirk Gently’ books. In this triple-CD programme, Simon Jones takes an A-Z look at Douglas Adams’s career, taking in extracts from the many radio and TV programmes he contributed to. These include personal appearances on ‘Wogan’, ‘Tomorrow’s World’ and ‘Desert Island Discs’, his own radio programmes such as ‘Last Chance to See’ (about the search for endangered species) and ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Future’ (a look at impending technology), and even a ‘lost’ segment of ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ which Adams wrote specially for Radio 4’s ‘Steafel Plus’ in 1982. Also included are some of the many tributes paid to Adams following his untimely death in May 2001. This is a fascinating and in-depth audio biography of a man whose brilliant work has inspired, enraptured and entertained millions of people worldwide. ' A good overview of Adams's comedy output outside of Hitchhicker's' – SFX.
