Solid rather than spectacular

This podcast gives pretty good biographies of notable people from the United Kingdom. They do tend to sound like they are being read from an entry in the print edition of the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography - no excitement, no passion, just the facts (albeit solidly researched). But still worth a listen. They are usually short - 10-20 minutes. There are regular plugs to visit their website, which does offer some free material on UK history and people but keeps its core material for subscribers at a fairly hefty price for individuals.


very pleasant voice delivering in a relatively matter of fact way
