Tech Tuesday: Listen to Historical Figures Speaki

There's a new treat for users of wikipedia.  Voice recordings.  That's right. Along with biographies the BBC has shared voice recordings from some of their programs. Take a listen to Emma Thompson, from The Film Programme, November 28, 2013 or Jane Goodall from BBC Radio 4 programme Woman's Hour January 26, 2010. Unfortunately the links don't work in this blog format. You can listen by searching for their names on Wikipedia.

What does this have to do with genealogy? Not much, but it lovely to listen to these women.  Can't wait to see what else will be available.

The BBC is a public broadcasting station. On January 24, 2014 they held an event allowing attendees to capture audio from some Radio 4 broadcasts. You can read more about the BBC Voice Project here.
