A series of five programmes presenting Local Radio Stations 1: BBC Radio Leicester
It is just over twelve months since the first local radio station went on the air in the Government's Local Radio two-year experiment. This programme tells something of the daily life of a local station with excerpts from local programmes, the views of station staff and leading citizens in the city where local radio began.
BBC Radio Leicester is on the air with local programmes for over six hours a day-programmes that range from local history for schools to news for the city's blind.
Produced by Robert Kennedy
