The Republic of Great Britain? - Rear Vision - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
It’s been a while since the idea of becoming a republic has been at the forefront of public debate in Australia; even the election of a Federal Labor government in 2007 didn’t revive it. So I was surprised to discover on a recent trip to London that a British organisation called Republic was holding a conference. While Republic is only a small group, I thought it was a good opportunity to find out just how much debate there is in Britain over the role of the monarchy and its future.
Rear Vision looks at the short history of the modern British monarchy and the small but passionate debate over its future.

The Tone Generation is Ian`s continuing radio series exploring electronic music; a personal selection drawn from his records and cds, looking at different themes or composers in the era of analogue tape and early synthesizer technology. Within the limitations of his collection and the half hour time slot, the programmes will hopefully act as a useful and enlightening overview of electronic music as it developed in many different countries, and will be of special interest to enthusiasts and students studying the history of analogue electronics, from the formative days up to the 1970s.
Programme 1: Great Britain Music by: Desmond Briscoe, Daphne Oram, Desmond Leslie, Tristram Cary, Roberto Gerhard, Fred Judd and Malcolm Clarke.
