Bernard Shaw: The Spoken Word

Synopsis
George Bernard Shaw was a prominent figure in the early years of radio in Britain, and he used the medium to promote some of his more controversial views, making regular broadcasts over a period of almost 25 years. The surviving recordings address a characteristically wide range of topics, from social equality and the evils of capitalism to the nature of drama.
