It seems the BBC has brought my 2014 documentary series back onto its front page.

Apparently it’s in the top 20 radio documentaries at the moment.

You can listen to it again here:

1 I’ve Heard There Was a Secret Chord

2 There’s a place for us

3 It Ain’t Necessarily So

    Thank you for sharing Norman. Listened to the first episode today. A great way to spend my morning. Last minutes on Jewish music and the Holocaust were very moving.

  • YoYo Mama says:

    Very nice. Now, if only the BBC (news) would accept circumcision as normal. If it’s good enough for the Royal Family…

  • Pamela Brown says:

    Just wonderful. Very timely, too…
