Edward Lear on the BBC

I periodically check the BBC website for news on Edward Lear and especially programmes relating to him; my latest find is a dramatization of “The Jumblies” for the Storytime series on BBC School Radio.


But of particular interest will be next Monday’s, 19 October 2015, BBC Four broadcast of an episode of The Secret Life of Books devoted to “Edward Lear’s Nonsense Songs.” Anyone able and willing to record it for the unlucky ones living outside the UK?


Nicholas Parsons had also been one of the protagonists, with Vivien Noakes, of a 2008 “Great Lives: Edward Lear” episode on BBC Redio 4, which is still available for listening.
