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.
