Until today history has largely been compiled from the written word - dusty documents in muniment rooms, rent rolls, workhouse lists, the transactions of tenants and land-owners, and of course the writings of other historians.
The arrival of the tape recorder has added a new dimension to the study of history. In this programme Dr John Marshall of Lancaster University, talks to his colleagues about this development, and ANNA DAVIN , University of London; GEORGE EWART EVANS ; BRIAN HARRISON and RAPHAEL SAMUEL , University of Oxford; CHRISTOPHER STORM-CLARKE , University of York; and JOHN WHYMAN , University of Kent, illustrate their contributions with their own recordings.
