I've just discovered BBC's radio archives. What a great find!

You can find brief (2-5 min.) interviews with everyone from Alfred Hitchcock to Agatha Christi.
a few of the categories are:

Then there's In Out Time.

a 45 minute program on the history of ideas, with topics like:

Memory - and the brain
the Artist - a special kind of human being?
Infinity -a brief history.
Robin Hood- the greatest of English myths.
the Alphabet- its creation and development.
Imagination - just what is it?
Beauty - the philosophy of beauty
Renaissance Magic - the great passion of the age

And of course, all of this is in a variety of delightfully british accents.

This should provide me with plenty of listening material while I sketch or do autocad homework.
