The diaries of George Orwell will be made available online for the first time by the Orwell Prize, Britain's pre-eminent prize for political writing. The Orwell Prize website will publish Orwell's domestic and political diaries as a blog. The entries will be added daily, exactly 70 years to the day since Orwell wrote them. Richard Blair, Orwell's son, reads extracts from the diaries.
