Last year, I was privileged to be asked to speak about Doctor Who for a Radio 4 Extra documentary celebrating fifty years since the programme began in 1963. I expected a twenty second clip of something vaguely interesting I said to find its way into the programme — but, no! I’m in it quite a lot. What’s more, I keeping meeting people who tell me they heard it and enjoyed it.

For those who missed it, or want the chance to listen to it again, the nice people at the BBC have put the whole lot on YouTube. And it’s not just me, it features a lot of other top people as well, and repeats of some Radio 4 archive programmes. My favourite is The Reunion (1’05” in) in which people involved with the first episode get back together and reminisce with Sue MacGregor.

Worth a listen!
