Have you heard about the Listening Project? The BBC and the British Library have come together in an ambitious new partnership which aims to capture the nation in conversation.
The Listening Project will invite people across the UK to share an intimate conversation. Some of these conversations will be broadcast by the BBC and curated and archived by the British Library building a unique picture of our lives today and preserving it for future generations.
What people talk about is their choice. It could be a moment of joy, sadness or reflection. This project is about creating the space for people to have that conversation they always meant to have.
Radio 4’s Controller Gwyneth Williams said: “We want to bring a new kind of conversation onto Radio 4, made possible by the unique nature of radio, its intimacy and entanglement in the lives of audiences."
