“QUOTE ... UNQUOTE”
WELCOME TO THE “QUOTE ... UNQUOTE”
REVISED 10 JANUARY 2022
To mark the end of the programme, I have chosen highlights for a retrospective with the title “Quote … Unquote: A Celebration”. This was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Boxing Day and BBC Radio 4 Extra from 20 December. In addition there are several classic editions available on R4X. All of these shows are available on BBC Sounds.
Series 57 of the radio show – beginning with the 500th edition – has now been broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and is still available on BBC Sounds.
