BBC English: the BBC Advisory Committee on Spoken English, its history, and its effect on the English language today. The BBC Advisory Committee on Spoken English lasted only around fifteen years before World War 2, yet its effects can still be felt today. In this episode I'll talk you through the committee's history and it effects us today. Apologies again for the 24 hour delay on releasing this weeks episode. As advance warning I will be on holiday for the first two weeks of August so there will likely be no podcasts on the 6th or 13th - unless you pay $1million mwahaha
