Just a quick note about Things we forgot to remember, a website for a new radio series that began last Monday. You can listen to the first episode online, about the Battle of Britain and the Battle of Mers-El-Kebir (update: it’s great). Early modernists, however, will be particularly interested to learn that the upcoming episode (23 May) will be about the Spanish Armada. (And a later one will be about the French Revolution.)
Thanks to Chris Williams of the Open University, who worked on the programme, for the tip-off. Esther McCallum-Stewart of Break of Day in the Trenches also had a hand in it. So I expect much yummy goodness.
Update: If you have any trouble with the direct link to the programme above, this will take you to the main Radio 4 page and you can see the link on the right hand sidebar. (Although I’m hoping it’ll work OK now.)
