Blast from the past at radio airing
PLAYS spoken in a traditional Gloucestershire dialect will be heard for the first time in 77 years in a performance at The King's School, Gloucester on Saturday.
In 1935, Frederick William Harvey wrote and participated in a series of four ground-breaking radio plays, produced for the BBC Whiteladies Road Studios in Bristol.
Mr Harvey used farmers from the Forest of Dean to act out the parts, giving a realistic flavour of the sound of Gloucestershire.
Four plays took inspiration from each of the farming seasons.
