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. Currently available episodes are listed below, and you can listen to each of them by clicking on the links.

This week Guy Turner takes us on a musical journey with the organist, teacher, conductor, and prolific composer, Eric Thiman (1900 – 1975). As The Thiman Collection’s Archivist, and previously singer in one of Thiman’s Choral Societies, Guy provides a fascinating insight into Thiman, interspersed with recordings of his works, some of which BDCS have performed.
