Egad! BBC Radio 7 is now broadcasting banned books!

Good on 'em. From long-time p3 correspondent and angloradiophile Doctor Beyond came this good news today:

Starting last Saturday BBC radio 7 has begun their series broadcasting banned books, starting with Lady Chatterley's Lover--with the naughty bits left in. I know that you have promote banned book month so thought you'd be interested in this.

I haven't seen what other works they will be doing but LCL will probably take three or four weeks, with a new episode each week. Chapter 1 will be up until 12:02am GMT next Sunday the 31st.

You can catch the webcast here.

And just to get you going:

Obscenity only comes in when the mind despises and fears the body, and the body hates and resists the mind.

D.H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley's Lover

Thanks, Doctor B.
