'Recording of the Week' highlights gems from the Archival Sound Recordings website, selected by British Library experts or recommended by listeners. This week's item was selected by Jonnie Robinson, a specialist in sociolinguistics & education at the British Library. The recording was made for the BBC in 1999 by Jill Womersley for the Millennium Memory Bank, one of the largest single oral history collections in Europe.
