Comments

Most of the audio on this tape appears in a more un-compiled form on 0080-B.. There is also another copy on 0136-AB and 0083-B. However there are a number of clips on this tape that aren’t featured on 0080-B. Where possible use 0102-A (National Programme material) and 0080-B as I believe these are probably closer to the original audio
