I read a few of the Biggles books when I was much younger. This would take me back a few years!
And! .. I've just remembered a spoof title for one of his books which made me chuckle - 'Biggles Flies Undone'.

Yes - bbc7 is online. And it should be archived so you can hear it after the broadcast:

Thanks folks. Good to know. I will do it when I get home later. (No loudspeakers at work. I shall have to speak with the manager, Linda Carter, better known as Wonderwoman).
