Did anybody back in the 1980s used to listen to the British Service of Radio Moscow. These broadcasts were especially tailored to a British audience and went about for about one hour at 8.00pm every evening. They had programmes such as "Commentator Answers Listeners Questions", "This Younger Generation" and "Moscow Mailbag".One of their announcers had a perfect English accent and was named Doris Maximova.Every edition of "Moscow Mailbag" had a letter from certain "Miss Amy Smith" from the Shetland Islands. Infact an associate went to the USSR as the winner of a Radio Moscow competition "The influence of the Russian Language in the World Today", back in the mid-1980s. Radio Moscow provided an alternative media to the imperialist press, particularly at the time of the Great Miners strike 1984-85.Let go down the memory lane of boardcasting from the good Socialist camp!
