Audio of Liverpool Blitz

I was made aware of this today I thought I’d share it with you all. The BBC radio show Broadcasting House, played a recently unearthed radio broadcast of a bomb blitz on Liverpool (August 1940 – January 1942) that occurred during the Second World War.

The May Blitz on Liverpool, 1-7 May 1941, (from which this audio is from) was the most concentrated series of air attacks on any British city area outside London during the Second World War. 

During the Blitz in May 1941, 681 planes dropped 870 tonnes of high explosives and more than 112,000 firebombs on Liverpool.

What amazed me most was the calmness of the reporter whilst the bombs fell. Audio starts around the 25 minute mark.

It’s available online for a year, though it may not play in certain areas of the world so you may have to use a VPN.

I'm just a creature from the heap so excuse my savage ignorance.
