An Index to CBC's Orwell Tapes: Those Who Knew Orwell

“CBC is the only media organization with a comprehensive archive of recordings of people who knew George Orwell from his earliest days to his final moments.  There are fifty hours of recordings.  Some of this oral history was included in “George Orwell, A Radio Biography” which aired on CBC radio on January 1, 1984 – the first day of Orwell’s famous year. But much of it is being aired now for the first time.”

  1. A wonderful series! I found myself rationing the listening time in hope and attempt to make it last longer. It was a thrill to hear the voices of people I read about in the various biographies.
