Despite so many viewing options, ninety per cent of people in Britain still listen to the radio, with over a billion hours of listening every week. Broadcasters Corrie Corfield, Charlie Connelly and Paddy O’Connell will discuss the magic of radio, taking stock of its place in history and celebrating a shared national experience. Charlie Connelly’s new book, Last Train to Hilversum, is his love letter to radio. Corrie Corfield has been a newsreader and continuity announcer on Radio 4 for 30 years. Paddy O’Connell presents Broadcasting House and is an occasional presenter of PM.
