Failure

Listen in pop-out player

Recycled Radio - old BBC programmes chopped up and recycled into something new, featuring the voices of Sheila Hancock, David Attenborough, Beryl Bainbridge, Matthew Parris, John Humphries, Margaret Thatcher, Joe Queenan, Bill Clinton, Armando Iannucci, Jeremy Paxman and Gordon Brown on the theme of Failure.

Failure is a subject we can all understand - the programme features quiz show contestants, divorcees, politicians, as well as an explanation of the the death of the dodo, and the voice of the man who discovered Scott's body in his tent in the Antarctic. But these are not stories told in a conventional sense - they have been chopped up and broken down, slowed down, and then placed against each other to create something new.

The producer is Miles Warde.
