Voices on BBC Radio Cornwall

During August 2005 listen to a series of reports about local dialect on BBC Radio Cornwall. Then hear them again here on the BBC Cornwall website including a special documentary about the project.


BBC Radio Cornwall's Voices producer Nina Davey has been travelling throughout the county to learn more about local dialect.

Keep listening to BBC Radio Cornwall this summer to hear Nina's reports and the Cornish dialects she has collected so far. Visit the BBC Cornwall website for updates and more chances to hear audio from Cornish people of all ages.

Here on the BBC Cornwall website you can listen to hairdressers talking about phrases young people use in the county. And meet a group from Feock near Truro who have a few stories to tell.

Tune into James Churchfield each weekday morning from 6am until the end of August 2005 to hear more about the project, re-discover the words you used to say, and new ones along the way.

Here on the BBC Cornwall website you can listen to the Cornish voice of a man born in 1882. You can also learn why traditionalists are claiming that Cornwall is becoming less Cornish by the day and they say the rate of change is speeding up. Listen to these reports and Nina Davey's Cornish Documentary as part of our BBC Voices coverage. Click on the links below.
