BBC Radio Cambridgeshire Village Voice of Haddenham

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire "Village Voices of Haddenham"

These recordings were for BBC Cambridge Radio with the interviewer was Paul Cobley, a well-known teacher of English and Drama.

An excellent programme of local people who gave their views of the village. Included are parish officials, children from the primary school, tours of the roads and lanes together with music chosen to fit the occasion. A real peep into rural life in the end of the twentieth century.

This was one of a series put out by BBC Cambridgeshire Radio in its early days, in the Eighties and it gave listeners an idea of some of the villages it covered.  Many of the participants are now no longer alive and so this record is especially valuable.
