ouis MacNeice, radio writer and producer: A series of listening events at the British Library @ The British Library

Please join us for the following three listening events at the British Library in June. Each of these radio programmes from the archives will be introduced briefly by Amanda Wrigley, Research Fellow at the Communications and Media Research Institute (CAMRI), the University of Westminster, who is the curator of the season.

There will be a discussion with an expert in MacNeice, exploring how each piece works as a piece of radio in addition to how it fits the cultural landscape of the time and MacNeice’s wider radio oeuvre. The discussions will be followed by a Q&A.
