If you enjoy BBC Radio 4, you’ll enjoy this program (The more old Radio 4 programs you remember, the more you’ll enjoy it.) “The Knowledge” is the common term for the geographical information a London taxi driver must know to get a hackney license. But don’t imagine (as you might) that this program will teach you the quickest route from Elephant & Castle to Hampstead Heath. While “The Knowledge” plays a role in this epistemological meditation, only a handful of street names appear. Stephen Fry’s wonderful rich voice and effervescent personality hold this collection of observations and anecdotes together. Because much of the program is material from old radio quiz shows, the sound quality varies. F.C. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2012]
