Bingo, Barbie, and Barthes

Richard Hoggart on the BBC Radio 4 website

There’s a two-part documentary about cultural studies on Radio 4 this week and next: Bingo, Barbie and Barthes: 50 years of cultural studies. Needless to say, the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies features heavily, and some of our colleagues from the CCCS50 project are on the programme.

Details (and a ‘listen now’ link, for the time being at least) here. Or just click the image, which is taken from the programme page. And don’t forget to follow @CCCS50 on Twitter…

Did I know, before doing an image search for this post, that David Tennant portrayed Richard Hoggart in a major TV drama? No I didn’t. Here he is.
