BBC: Bingham Broadcasting Corporation

In common with many other local organisations, we are currently inactive and awaiting easing of restrictions by the Government. We have plans in place for a restart in September, but we are not holding our breath.

To keep ourselves amused, we have established our own BBC (Bingham Broadcasting Corporation). Each week, on Wednesday, the BBC produces a short broadcast, which is available to all, over the internet. The programmes are listed below, and you can listen to each of them by clicking on the links.
