Radio Verulam’s weekly segment Bouche à Oreille has been on air broadcasting in French for seven years - expanding from a half an hour slot once a month in 2011 to a one-hour weekly show in 2018.

There are now four presenters, founders Aline Bavister and Geraldine Zolynski and newer additions Melanie Gardner and Elise Lines.

With international audiences stretching to Thailand, the show has covered a range of topics including Brexit, UK holiday destinations, charity work, the jewels of Hertfordshire, home schooling, and how to keep up spoken French at home.

Local authors, actors and musicians are often featured on the show.
