Description:

William Hogarth, Henry VII, and Richard Pryor all make appearances in the thoughtful BBC4 radio program, Great Lives. Hosted by Matthew Parris, the program was started in 2007, and it continues to grow in popularity. The format is fairly straight-forward: Guests on the program choose someone who has inspired their lives and a conversation ensues. Visitors to the site can sign up for the podcasts from the series, or they can just browse through past programs by year. Currently, there are almost 70 programs on the site, and some of the highlights include journalist Misha Glenny remembering the life of anti-Mafia campaigner Giovanni Falcone and musician Andy Sheppard talking about John Coltrane.
