Stuart Christie interview

Well worth listening to this frank 15 minute Radio 4 interview with Stuart Christie “In 1964 a young Scot called Stuart Christie joined a plot to assassinate the Spanish dictator General Francisco Franco. He had become friends with Spanish exiles living in London and was keen to help end Franco’s rule. But the plot failed and Christie ended up in jail. He has been telling his story to Mike Lanchin. ” BBC Radio 4

Thanks to Christine of stillcause for flagging this.

Interview with Paul Preston

Audio interview with Paul Preston here on Canal  Ser in Spanish about his book We Saw Spain Die about foreign journalists in the Spanish Civil War.

From review of We Saw Spain Die

In the minds of these correspondents, the quest for truth was not compromised but enhanced by commitment. This testament to their testimony could not have been supplied by a more erudite expert. Preston is a peerless historian of Spain, and the only one who writes as readably as a professional journalist.
