A Microphone for the People -The Charles Parker Archive
Thursday 7 April 2005 20:25-20:45 (Radio 3)
Tomorrow, Birmingham hosts a major conference about Charles Parker at the Central Library, home to his archive. In the Radio Ballads, Parker brought the microphone to people whose voices had not been heard before, but Sean Street discovers that this vast collection of tapes, scripts and papers reveals much more about the democratic impulse of this pioneering radio producer, oral historian and political activist.
