The Listening Project

The Listening Project is BBC Radio 4’s collection of intimate conversations between friends and relatives, recorded in partnership with local BBC radio stations, and stored in full at the British Library, as a social history record of our lives today.

Jessie’s mum and sister recorded a conversation about Jessie’s last few weeks, and subsequent beginnings of Jessie’s Fund, a three minute excerpt of which can be heard here. The whole 15 minute programme is worth a listen, but if you’re short of time, this chat starts 3′ 50″ into the programme.
