Short description:

Recordings in this collection can be played by anyone.

Listen to conversations recorded by BBC Nations and Regions as part of The Listening Project which started in 2012.

The Listening Project is an audio archive of conversations recorded by the BBC. People are invited to share an intimate conversation with a close friend or relative, to be recorded and broadcast (in edited form) by the BBC and curated and archived in full by the British Library. These one-to-one conversations, lasting up to an hour and taking a topic of the speakers' choice, collectively form a picture of our lives and relationships today.
