On Friday afternoons, Radio 2 broadcaster Alex Lester presents a magazine show on BBC Radio Oxford. This afternoon’s episode included a nice article about the new boardgame display in the Bodleian Library called “Playing with History”. As well as a bit of general chit-chat, there was a very interesting interview with Chris Fletcher, the Keeper of Special Collections at the Bodleian, and Richard Ballam the game collector who donated 1,500 games dating from 1800 to the John Johnson Collection which are the subject of the display. The program is available on iPlayer for a month and the article starts about forty-four minutes in.
