The Invention of Italy on BBC Radio 4

Contributed by LC on Aug 26, 2016 - 04:14 PM (Last edited Aug 29, 2016)

Picture 0 for The Invention of Italy on BBC Radio 4
"The Invention of Italy" is a 3 parts programme presenting the history of Italy now aired by BBC Radio 4. The next part is scheduled on 2 September at 23.30 British Time (22.30 UTC). All broadcast are available on the BBC website but its airing time also favours listening on long and medium waves in Europe. Author Misha Glenny presents the history of Italy from 1494 to the end of WWI. Back at the end of 15th Century Italy was divided in fighting local states, finally invaded by France. A long path to the unification of the country made possible only 3 centuries later.
The series, along with similar programmes about history of other European countries, is avalibale on: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03dfp5r
BBC did broadcast in Italian its "L'Ora di Londra" from 1938 to 1981, marking the most ever successful International radio programme in the Italian language. Italradio follows with growing interest all programmes about Italy coming from the BBC, also in the hope a Italian programme could be reopened as a contribution to mutual understanding and common cultural heritage.
Radio 4 is the only BBC national channel being relayed on long wave (198 kHz) and on medium wave from the following locations: Aberdeen - 1449, Belfast - 720, Carlisle 1485, Cornwall 756, Enniskillen 774, London 720, Londonderry 720, Newcastle 603, Plymouth 774 kHz. A good opportunity to check the bands on 2 September.
