I found the moderator very British, I have to say :-D Thanks for all the suggestions, Ian! You opened me a new world. It's also an exercise of English listening (my use of English is mostly written and, when spoken, mostly with non-native speakers).
Sorry I missed this response.
Phew, In Our Time can be heavy going even for a native English speaker, the fact you can do it as a non native speaker is astonishing to me. And yes I can imagine the presenter, Melvyn Bragg
, seeming very British to outsiders.
But as with most people on here, conducting and chronicling this pursuit in a second (third or fourth) language, puts my own pitiful language skills in sharp relief.
