The Listening Project is a collaborative project between the BBC and the British Library, modelled on the US StoryCorps project. Producers from regional and national BBC radio stations have, since the beginning of 2012, been recording people talking to each other about a topic of their choice, often something that they have been wanting to discuss but never found the time to sit down and really talk about.
