New in the BBC Radio 4 Great Lives series: Barry Cryer nominates J.B. Priestley. Broadcast 11 January at 4.30 pm, repeated at 11 pm and presumably available later via iplayer.
Barry Cryer knew Priestley well. The programme also features Martin Wainwright, who helped make the Postscripts programme last year work so well. The presenter, Matthew Parris, will apparently add a sceptical note.
