Well. This is the only way you'll ever get to understand what all the fuss was about.


Although Unwinese translates beautifully into the written word, there's really no beating hearing the man himself talk his talk so just click on the mp3 links below.


Just to start you off, here's a few clips and I'll be adding more over the next few weeks. Oh yes, and while I think about it: virtually all these clips must be copyrighted to someone or other so if  there's anyone who wants these taken down, or wants a good, sound acknowledgement, please just drop me a line and I'll be more than happy to do it.

Think of England

In 1999, the BBC put together a whole host of activities right across the country called Think of England in an effort to explore 'Englishness'. Part of this festival involved commissioning Stanley to give his views on a wide range of subjects. Here are the results.
