It may not happen very often, but there are moments when most people have to speak in public. A phone-in, radio interview, self-help group, best man at a wedding, speaker at a women's group, job interview, business conference ... moments when people must use their voices publicly. How do you prepare? How can you project your voice without shouting? Why are women's voices less resonant than men's? Can all voices become more effective?
How important is a good speaking voice anyway? Gordon Clyde , actor, broadcaster and teacher of public speaking and Elizabeth Pursey , adviser at RADA and to actors in rehearsal, answer your questions.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
