Durham Miners’ Gala: every year we record music and crowd comments from this important event for the TN.

There should be something for everyone in our talking newspaper (and if a particular track is not to your taste you can just skip to the next one).  The 40 minute news digest keeps our listeners in touch with their communities and County Durham at large; the stories we source from the Northern Echo are not always covered by radio or television.  

In our 40 minute magazine section we include a quiz and a great deal of local history and general nostalgia material, sourced mostly from our regional papers.
