    Does anyone have experience of accessing the BBC Sound Archive at The British Library and if so, what did it entail, what are the costs?

    My great grandfather had very small 'spots' on the radio during the late 1930's, 40's. He also recorded songs as he was a singer/musician. I've been able to acquire one 78rpm vinyl record. I wrote to the Desmond Carrington Show (BBC Radio 2) to see if he had recordings in his collection but unfortunately didn't but they did supply me with a list of songs that my GGF recorded and suggested TBL.

    Thank you Flook.

    Hopefully, I will be able to find something :D The links are very informative and I'll contact them next week.

    Thanks again.
