The Project

Listen to "The Project" on Spreaker.


My original plan back in January 2020 was to gather as much unpublished material from the BBC Written Archives Centre (WAC) in Reading as possible and to then use that as the basis of my dissertation with interviews over the Spring. I must confess that it was a bad day for me when I got an email from the WAC just one week before my scheduled visit to the archives telling me that my visit was cancelled due to the Coronavirus. I continued with my research through to the Summer as best I could and again due to the lockdown, my several planned visits to London had to be cancelled. Instead, for my research design, I opted for email questionnaires and I thank everyone who responded.
