    BBC Scotland completes Robert Burns audio archive

    BBC Scotland is set to complete a huge online audio archive of the works of the national bard, Robert Burns.

    Three years in the making, The Complete Works of Robert Burns features more than 700 poems recorded by some of Scotland's best-known figures.

    Contributors include Scotland's new national poet Liz Lochhead, Robbie Coltrane, Robert Carlyle and Brian Cox.

    The archive, which has already attracted two million hits, will officially be completed on Burns Day.

    The website was originally launched to mark the 250th anniversary of the bard's birth.

    The above is only part of the BBC page, for the full story use the link below.

    Only one problem with the audio readings........................ "Not available in your area"............ Why not worldwide coverage.????

    Yes, what a disappointment. Perhaps it's a "work in progress" and will later be available?

    and the day they launched it they announced the site would close due to cut backs.

    will only be available in the archives of radio scotland
