Weekly Audio Homework of Your Choice!

To be downloaded or listened to, via the BBC RADIO iplayer (the pink app: not the black tv app).

You can’t get a job on Radio 4 unless you have great diction and a very clear way of speaking.

So …

The 20 radio programs listed below have been researched by and are recommended by me.

There is something for everybody. Most of these programs are broadcast weekly on Radio 4, however some drama productions were broadcast earlier in the year and so have to be purchased on iTunes or Amazon.
Hopefully (!) you will find something that you enjoy listening to; so, have a browse, press the link and listen or download for when you can relax and enjoy a little accent brainwashing! Enjoy!
