Radio blog - the view from abroad

Post categories:

Laura Murray Laura Murray | 17:11 UK time, Wednesday, 29 September 2010

"In 2001, I moved to Connecticut for 2 years and while I appreciated so much of American life, almost every evening I would go to the computer after putting the children to bed and listen to programmes such as Today or In Our Time on Listen Again (as it was once called). On returning to the UK, I can recall that my first decision in this job was to confirm that I wanted our domestic networks to continue to be available for free online across the world. It did not cost significant money and there was no clear way to commercialise the services, so it was an easy decision to make.

On this theme, an article published in the LA Times this week not only drew attention to the strength of radio but gave a perspective on how Radio 4 is perceived beyond our shores."

Tim Davie, Director of Audio & Music at the BBC reflects on the appeal of Radio 4 abroad. To read his post in full and to make a comment, head over to the Radio blog.
