Subject: BBC Reith Lectures

I just found out that tonight at 20:30 GMT, on Radio 4, the BBC Reith

lectures will feature Jean Aitcheson speaking on attitudes toward language

change and misconceptions about language standards. I looked at the World

Service listings on the Web but don't see it there. I can't get much info

from the BBC home page, which doesn't seem to let one email a question.

Does anybody know how to find out if the World Service will rebroadcast

this? Is anybody out there in a position to record the broadcast? Does

anybody know if for example NPR or CBC will rebroadcast the lectures?

Sounds like it will be an interesting talk.
