Podcasts from the National Archives

I found these when I was digging around for some details to flesh-out a minor plot point. This complete list of podcasts from the National Archives has an amazing array of subjects for the lectures (and they are full lectures), although I can't vouch for the listenability of all the speakers. I see Paddy Ashdown is one of them: he's always worth a listen once I've worked through the ones that actually tie in with what I'm writing.

[ETA:] Currently listening to this one, which is fascinating: The strange journey of Edward Swarthye, an African in Elizabethan England: from the Spanish Caribbean to rural Gloucestershire.
