The British Library launches a CD set

including P G Wodehouse talking about Jeeves and Wooster


The British Library have written to the P G Wodehouse Society (UK) announcing the launch of 'two major audio titles': The Spoken Word: British Writers and The Spoken Word: American Writers. Each title features 3 CDs along with a booklet. They cost £19.95 inc VAT each, plus postage and packing of £1.00 for the UK and £2.00 for overseas.


The reason the British Library has drawn our attention to the recordings is that the British Writers collection contains a recording of P G Wodehouse talking about Jeeves and Wooster. This is the first time that this recording has been made commercially available.

The Guardian has issued a review of these CDs, including this comment on Plum: "One of the jolliest interviewees is PG Wodehouse, in conversation with Alistair Cooke in 1963. They talk jocularly about a new theory that automation is going to throw so many people out of work that by the year 2000 every middle-class family will need four servants to keep people employed."
