On the continual search for perspective

Mining the veritable delights of Radio 4 I stumbled across the delights of 'A Point of View' - 'A weekly reflection on a topical issue' - with commute friendly 10 to 15 minute bite size pieces from Clive James, Simon Schama, Joan Bakewell, John Gray, Mary Beard, David Cannadine and my favourites Alain de Botton & Will Self.

By the sleepy lagoon

On the 29th January 1942 the first ever Desert Island Discs was broadcast. Surpassed only by the Grand Ole Opry it is the second longest running radio show in history. Beautiful in its simplicity - each castaway is asked to choose eight pieces of music, a book and a luxury item for their imaginary stay on the desert island. For those who have not come across it before aquaint yourself with its iconic theme tune 'By the Sleepy Lagoon' here. Then for newcomers and old hands aquaint yourself with the wonderful new BBC website with searchable archives of 2852 episodes detailing castaways choices, and now with more than 500 episodes available for free download.
