Brian Johnston's Down Your Way: Favourite People & Places Vol. 1 | [Barry Johnston]

Brian Johnston's Down Your Way: Favourite People & Places Vol. 1

Down Your Way was a BBC radio series from 1946 to 1992, on the Home Service and then on BBC Radio Four. It visited towns around the United Kingdom and spoke to residents. Sometimes being described as having portrayed an increasingly outmoded and rose-tinted view of Britain concentrating on market towns with pre-industrial roots and ignoring industrial towns and New Towns it vividly evoked the local and regional distinctiveness as it roved around the United Kingdom.
