Road To Durham

April 18, 2009 Leave a comment

Radio 4 – 2.30pm TODAY- The Saturday Play:

The Radio Times tells us that the Bevin Boys were a largely ignored group of 18 year olds when their names were picked out of a hat towards the end of the Second World War.They were sent down the mines instead of joining the forces. See page 121 of the current Radio Times – sounds like it will be an interesting play. Some of the action takes place at the Durham Miners’ Gala.

So – get your ‘wireless’ sorted – forget ‘Journey Into Space’ and hopefully have a profitable hour listening in to Road to Durham.
