Bible reading in Cumbrian dialect
The Bible

Here's a couple of BBC Radio Cumbria's favourite Bible readings ... but they are all a bit different!

In the late 1970s BBC Radio commissioned some Bible passages to be written and read in Cumbrian dialect.

A local expert, the late Rene Roberts, produced a series of unique readings which made no great impact back then.

However, they were resurrected from the BBC Radio Cumbria Archive in the late 90s and enjoyed a surge in popularity.
