Default "Callsigns" the story of a ham in Kiev

Wasn't sure where to post this as there doesn't seem to be a "suggested listening" section - maybe the mods could relocate it appropriately

I was tuning through medium & longwave last night on my repaired Roberts, and by chance came across this on 198k long wave, its really interesting, well worth a listen.
A first-person narrative of a radio ham in Kiev and his experiences during the war.

In fact I was so enthralled I didn't want to interrupt it to switch to R4 FM in case I missed a bit

"Callsigns" which is part of the BBC "Lights Out" series

I was actually listening to a ham (on 20m I think) near Kiev recently describing life since since the invasion. He was talking to a ham in another country (don't recall which) but he was speaking in fairly good English. I didn't make a note of his call sign, I wonder if it was the same guy?

Thanks to Phil for flagging this up, I also listened to it - I thought it was very well put together.
