Bernard Shaw Radio Broadcasts

Synopsis
Bernard Shaw was a prominent figure in the early years of radio in Britain. Despite a sometimes tense relationship with the BBC, fuelled by his determination to use the new medium to promote some of his more controversial views, Shaw made regular broadcasts over a period of almost 25 years. The surviving recordings address a wide range of topics, from social equality and the evils of capitalism to the nature of drama. About half of the recordings are published here for the first time. Includes extracts from controversial broadcasts, including ‘A Message to America’ and ‘Whither Britain?'
