The News Huddlines

Post by Brock »

Next Friday Radio 4 Extra starts a run of The News Huddlines with the 1978 end-of-year special:

They've broadcast one or two episodes before but it's not something they often do, partly because the programme was topical of course, but also (as I understand it) because of the difficulty of sorting out royalties for the large number of writers involved. Only eight writers are credited for this episode, though - didn't they take so many submissions back then?
