Podcast by Neil Oliver

Post by MaryA »

I'm sure Neil Oliver will be known to you, I've received details about a podcast by him that might be of interest to you.

From Neil Oliver,

Hi,

I’ve been a broadcaster and author, for the past 20 years. In that time I’ve travelled the length and breadth of the British Isles, circumnavigating its coast (two or three times!), uncovering its secrets and marvelling at its wonders. I love it.

In my new history podcast I travel to 100 remarkable places across England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland and use them to tell the story of the British Isles.

Hope you enjoy it.

Please share the link below with your friends and members – thanks.

Best,

Neil Oliver


Press Release

New Podcast: Neil Oliver’s Love Letter to the British Isles

‘…our modern world, to some extent it’s a veneer, it’s scraped thin like butter over toast and if you go that bit deeper the distant past of our ancestors is still here.’

Neil Oliver’s distinctive voice has helped make him the star of some of the BBC’s most popular history documentaries, from Coast to Vikings and Celtic Britain. In his new podcast he takes us with him on an unforgettable journey around Britain to discover the places he loves and the history that’s beneath all our feet.

In the series Neil travels to 100 places that have stuck in his heart and uses them to tell the history of the British Isles. His journey starts a million years ago with evidence of the island’s first occupants. Then, with Neil at our side we travel through time and place right up to the present day – unearthing a history bathed in blood, powerful families and factions ripping themselves apart, heart stopping courage and extraordinary achievement.

New episodes come out every Tuesday. The Podcast can be found on people’s usual providers.
