The Somme: Lessons for Today
The start of July saw a number of commemorations of the start of the Battle of the Somme in the First World War.
Bradford Community Radio broadcast a programme telling the story of the ‘Bradford Pals’ . They brought the themes of War and approaches to Conflict Resolution up to date by having in-depth interviews with Pat Gaffney (General Secretary of Pax Christi) and Prof.Paul Rogers (Professor of Peace studies at Bradford University). The programme is available until the end of July via the internet. Click the button to go to BCB Radio’s Listen Again page for the programme .
