Above the noise was an exhibition at the Science and Media Museum that brought together 15 stories from Bradford in a variety of forms — from words and photographs to sound installations and new artworks.
The BCB story was a feature of the exhibition. The story of BCB is really the story of the volunteers. The audio from the exhibition is below.
Ben escaped the conflict in Congo by coming to Bradford as a student. ‘Big Ben of Bradford’ is now a peacemaker and a regular contributor to BCB.
Born and bred in Bradford, Shamim joined BCB looking to boost her confidence and 5 years later is now a key member of the management committee as well as a seasoned, all round broadcaster.
A regular on ‘Senior Moments’, Valerie got involved through another volunteer telling her she should come down. Here she talks about the value older people bring to the BCB community.
