Past Forward: A Century of Sound

The banner artwork for the Radio 4 series Past Forward shows Greg split down the middle; one half shows him as a man from the 1920s with a moustache, the other half shows him today with beard and modern clothing. He is holding a microphone and wears headphones


Across two series (20 episodes in all), Greg Jenner celebrates 100 years of the BBC by making 15 minute radio programmes inspired by a randomly-generated clip from the BBC archives. Beginning with something from our past, he tries to connect the themes of yesteryear to modern day Britain, to see what has changed and what has stayed the same.
