More radio gems

You’ll cry. You will. This programme (MP3) about a scheme encouraging imprisoned parents to record bedtime stories for their kids at home is a gem. And before you get on your Daily Mail high horse about yet another indulgence for pampered convicts, take note that parents who retain an emotional connection with their kids through a prison sentence are markedly less likely to re-offend once on the outside (enjoy, especially, the convict reading Burglar Bill to his kid at home). Also a gem (although you’re less likely to cry) is Matthew Paris’ lovely Archive Hour (MP3) about the first half century of the motor car in Britain.
