Radio Ballad tackles AIDS

Radio 2 first aired a series of 'radio ballads' in the 1950s and 60s in which the voices of communities are blended with sounds and songs on the topics. 'The Body Blow', first broadcast in 1962, dealt with polio. The ballads have now been updated and are being broadcast from next week on Radio 2 at 9 pm. The one on AIDS, 'Enemy Within', was deemed excellent by a preview panel on 'Front Row'. It is due for broadcast on 6 March, 9 pm.
