The BBC World Service (Radio) is launching a new daily history programme at the end of October to be called Witness. It will focus on the memories and testimonies of people who lived through historic events.
It "will mix those testimonies with material from the BBC's audio archive - to tell personal stories on air. Not just the war, but scientific discoveries, social changes, sporting events, art, fashion… really we're interested in hearing from anyone who has a story to tell."
The person to contact is Kirsty Reid, Editor, Analysis, BBC World Service Radio. (44) 207 557 1497 (no email address given).
