Thanks--I love the BBC! "In Our Time" is a treasure trove.
Back in 1990 when I served in the Persian Gulf I fondly remember the BBC was a great source of news about what was happening in the war. I also listened to Voice of America and BBC Canada International. It was odd being there and knowing that the people back home knew more about the war than I did : ). I know its a little aside but I just wanted to say I love the BBC as well. Shortwave radio was a good friend far from home.
