Surface - I didn't actually, but I don't know Leek that well. Certainly the accent is different once you get properly into the Peaks. Years ago I had a kitchen made by a bloke based in Leek. He had a much more 'Stoke' type accent, and a slowness of voice.

Did you notice the cattle market was actually Leek and not Macc? The accent is actually slightly different.

Will try to watch this later. My great great uncle was a POW in WW1 (spent the whole war as a prisoner). Pretty sad story - eventually topped himself in 1938.

LOL, Harsh but true............

It is fucking annoying having that bloke flap his arms around and trying to watch TBH, i found it easier to listen as if it was radio rather than watch,

Interesting program though, would have never thought to have watched something like this if it hadn't have been posted on WHO.

Thanks

You wouldn’t have thought a program about how people spoke would be high on the watch list for the deaf community.

Is there a version of this WITHOUT the mime artist?

Re: WWI British POWs and how they spoke,
watching it now , i was kinda hoping for a bit more of a personal testimony from the recordings , as opposed to reading from a sheet verbatim. bit too much to ask i guess

still v interesting tho
