“The story of our times told by the people who were there.”

Witness is an excellent audio podcast from the BBC, focussed on perspectives on historical events from people who were there. It’s a daily podcast usually running less than ten minutes. The episode on Thursday 10th March features an extended interview with Breda Power, sister of William Power, one of the Birmingham Six:

“In March 1991, six men wrongly accused of carrying out two bombings in the British city of Birmingham finally had their convictions quashed, ending one of Britain’s worst miscarriages of justice. The Birmingham Six had spent more than 16 years in jail for a crime they did not commit. Witness talks to one of their daughters, Breda Power, about how it affected her and her family.”
