This week guest host Cameron Reilly and Martin examine the 1970 epic Waterloo and argue about who actually won the battle.
(There is a stereo split for the first 29 minutes. We hope it’s not too distracting!)
In this week’s show Martin is joined by the Podfather, Cameron Reilly as they examine the 1970 epic Waterloo and argue about who actually won. It’s long but we hope it’s fun
Nick Parkinson provided this link to the article “Why the French think they won the Battle of Waterloo”:
In Episode 7 we examine 2015’s Cold war drama Bridge of Spies, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks
Below is the link to the US Supreme Court’s record of the US vs Abel. The whole document is quite a daunting read but if you skip to page 362 US 242 you will begin with Justice Douglas’ dissenting statement (dissenting from the verdict) followed by Justice Brennan’s and Justice Black’s and they are well worth a read.
This week we look at the three major movies portraying the events aboard HMS Bounty in 1789 and the conflict between Capt William Bligh and Fletcher Christian. It’s a big episode but we hope you’ll enjoy it
Episode 6: Mutiny on the Bounty
Simone Higgin’s Classic Hollywood MTC Podcast can be found here:
The following links will take you to the UK Amazon Kindle Store but from there you will be able to find other formats for the books and if you live elsewhere, you can copy and title and paste it into your local Amazon site or Google it to find where these books can be obtained. We would highly recommend Caroline Alexander’s book but William Bligh’s own account is also a fascinating read.
And if you’re looking for more podcasts on this period, we cannot recommend highly enough Ryan Stitt’s podcast series on the history of Ancient Greece. Like us, Ryan is not a professional historian although his degree, like our own Andrew’s, is in Ancient History and Classical languages. Give it a try:
Episode 3: The Sound of Music. We look at the true story of the von Trapp family behind the iconic 1965 Musical which starred Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer and some of Hollywood’s most recognizable songs
