The Spoken Word: Bernard Shaw

The Spoken Word: Bernard Shaw Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bernard Shaw was one of the most celebrated English-language writers of the 20th century and a very prominent figure in the early years of radio in Britain.

Fuelled by his determination to use radio to promote some of his more controversial views, Shaw made regular broadcasts over a period of almost 25 years. The surviving recordings address a characteristically wide range of topics, from social equality and the evils of capitalism to the nature of drama.
