CONVERSATIONS ON CONFIDENCE

Clinical psychologist and neuroscientist Professor Ian Robertson, author and leader of Guardian Masterclasses on How Confidence Works, and journalist and broadcaster Fionnuala Sweeney in conversation with members of the Atlantic Fellows community, a global network of leaders working together towards a more equitable world, explore the role of confidence (or lack of it) in their guests’ lives.


GURKHA VOICES
FROM THE FALKLANDS

On 2 April 1982, Argentina invaded and occupied the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic. So began the Falklands War. 1/7 DEO Gurkha Rifles, commanded by Brig (then Lt Col) David Morgan, took part in the conflict. For the past 40 years, most accounts of the Gurkhas’ role in the war have been in English. In Gurkha Voices from the Falklands, we hear from Gurkha veterans in their own language, Nepali. We also hear from Brig Morgan with his reflections on the role of his battalion and the conduct of the campaign.


AFGHAN DISPATCHES

Welcome to the latest episode of Afghan Dispatches with Diva Patang.

On 22 June 2022, eastern Afghanistan was hit by the deadliest earthquake in two decades. Already in the grips of a deepening humanitarian and economic crisis, the country is now struggling – with the help of international agencies – to provide disaster relief to the region.

Women represent nearly 50% of the country’s population and before the Taliban takeover last August made a significant contribution to its economy. We explore the impact of the Taliban’s restrictions on women for the country’s economy and for society more generally.


#STANDINGwithUKRAINE

On 24 February 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine. By late March, waves of refugees from Ukraine had been flooding into Berlin for some time. They found a warm welcome. Berliners had mobilised themselves to stand firmly with Ukraine.

HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL DAY 2022

WITH A SONG IN MY HEART
LEON GREENMAN & THE STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVAL
UCL CENTRE FOR HOLOCAUST EDUCATION

For London-born Auschwitz survivor Leon Greenman it was after the Holocaust that he said his nightmare really began. Every day was an agonising struggle for survival.

To mark Holocaust Memorial Day 2022, the UCL Centre for Holocaust Education, has created a podcast reflecting on Leon’s life and work, and the daily trauma of his survival.

Presented by Ruth-Anne Lenga, Associate Professor (Teaching) & Programme Director, UCL Centre for Holocaust Education, with an introductory podcast by Professor Li Wei, Director and Dean, IOE – UCL’S Faculty of Education & Society.


INTRODUCING ‘UNCLE BILL’

Known affectionately to many of those he commanded as ‘Uncle Bill’, Field Marshal Viscount Slim is widely regarded as ‘a soldier’s general’. But despite his outstanding leadership of the 14th Army in the Burma Campaign, he is much less well known outside military historical circles than his contemporary, Viscount Montgomery of Alamein. Presented by military historian Robert Lyman.

To find out more about ‘Uncle Bill‘ and the history and heritage of the Brigade of Gurkhas, visit the Gurkha Museum’s website.


IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF MARIE-ANTOINETTE

Professor Catriona Seth explores the life of Marie-Antoinette – her childhood at the Habsburg Court in Vienna, her marriage at 14 to the future Louis XVI, life at the French Court in Versailles and her final days at the Conciergerie in Paris during the Revolution before her execution on 16 October 1793, at only 37.

An Anglo-French collaboration with the Wallace Collection (London), Waddesdon Manor (Buckinghamshire), the Conciergerie and Chantal Thomas, author of Les Adieux à la Reine (Paris).


RACE BEYOND BORDERS
SEASON I

We were proud to work with the Atlantic Fellows for Racial Equity on their new, podcast series, Race Beyond Borders, presented by Sebabatso Manoeli.

The series looks at race from different angles, within South Africa and the United States, and beyond. Timely and thought-provoking.

REMEMBERING VJ DAY

To mark VJ Day 75, the Royal British Legion working with the Gurkha Museum and the Royal Gurkha Rifles created this podcast and accompanying film to tell the Gurkha story of the Burma campaign in the words of those who were there.

On 15 August 1945, Japan surrendered finally bringing the Second World War to an end. War in Europe had ended in the May, but in Burma bitter fighting continued and the Gurkhas, with their expertise in jungle warfare, played an important role.

With especial thanks to Lt Col JP Cross and Buddhiman Gurung for permission to use excerpts from their interviews with veterans in Gurkhas at War.
