In 2005 a Priestley Radio Show was broadcast on the local Morley Community Radio station. Being born in the local area it was thought only appropriate to produce a radio programme to honour their local scientist; Joseph Priestley. The show concentrates on Joseph Priestley's achievements and jokingly contends the BBC's greatest Britons list suggesting that Priestley's scientific, political and religious work should clearly have made him a contender. Members of the Priestley Society including the chairman, Les Woodcock, are on the show. If you know little about Joseph Priestley this is a good place to start to learn briefly the major reasons why Priestley is such an important historical character.
