Alistair Cooke: Letter from America recordings discovered

Lost editions of Alistair Cooke's long-running Radio Four programme, "Letter from America" have been unearthed in a farm shed in Warwickshire ten years after his death.

They were found on old cassettes, stored in a muck-spreader.

Radio 4's Paddy O'Connell spoke to David Henderson, a dairy farmer, who found the recordings.
