What’s in Forest Talk

The weekly recording contains two sections:

The News section, which lasts about 45 minutes, has extracts from the previous week’s editions of local newspapers, chosen to reflect their overall content.

The second half is the Magazine section, which covers a wide range of interests.

It is rather like the magazine selection of a newspaper. It contains individual features, often of particular local interest. They can be from other publications, or sometimes location recordings of choirs, concerts and field trips or interviews with local characters and MPs.

We may also include downloads of radio programmes, such as In Touch from BBC Radio 4.

We’ll respond to suggestions from listeners and their helpers – just pop a note in the mail pouch when you return the memory stick.
