Through the Oxford University Press blog, I find that the Dictionary of National Biography podcasts. I listened to the podcast on the Bee Gee’s Maurice Gibb. Perhaps I’ve been away from England too long, but I thought the narrator had an almost comically posh accent. His accent is the kind of thing you only encounter listening to archive recordings of the BBC from 30 or more years ago. Particularly given the pop content, it could have passed as a parody.
