FREEBEE FRIDAY: They Were There

Witness When teaching about a historic event, there’s nothing like reading about someone who was there. How about listening to them? That’s what the BBC World Service latest program, Witness, does. By sifting through the radio channel archives and mixing in key memoirs and recollections, Witness brings history to life. They are available on the World Service’s Podcast page with recent episodes on the end of post-War rationing in England, the assassination of Gandhi and how Facebook was created. You can play them on demand or download the shows to be played when you like.
