  1. Women of the Eureka Rebellion - Late Night Live - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    One of the foundation stories in Australia’s history is that of the eureka Stockade, where on 3 December 1854, a rebellion mounted by miners from Victoria’s goldfields was put down by colonial forces. While the names of those associated with Eureka are inevitably male, thousands of women travelled to Ballarat and ended up playing a pivotal role both on the goldfields and in the rebellion itself.

  2. The first sexual revolution - Late Night Live - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Forget the 1960s. The biggest changes in sexual mores came between 1600-1800, when more sexual freedom - albeit mainly for men - and a belief that sexual activity was largely a private, not a public matter, laid the foundations for much contemporary Western thinking on sex. This is the argument made by Oxford University historian Faramerz Dabhoiwala, in his acclaimed book.

    Guests:
    Faramerz Dabhoiwala, Senior fellow in history, Exeter College, Oxford

    Title: The Origins of Sex: A history of the first sexual revolution

  3. The New Deal and the Origins of our Time - Late Night Live - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Racism not only shaped American life in the age of the Great Depression, but Hitler looked fondly at the American South, which was more explicit and more degrading than anything taking place in Germany at the time. Ira Katznelson and David Runciman look at American liberalism when it was at the height of its power in the 1930s and 1940s.

    Dr Ira Katznelson, Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History, Columbia University

  6. Fred and Adele Astaire - Late Night Live - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Before Fred and Ginger, there was Fred and Adele, two siblings from Omaha who shared a 27 year theatrical career, and revolutionised the dance and song world of the 1920s. The Astaires were adored by audiences, feted by royalty, and courted by social elites everywhere they went. From the start Adele was the more natural performer, while Fred had to practise hard to hone his trademark timing, but ultimately his skills surpassed those of his sister. Originally broadcast on 27/6/12.

  7. A History of the World in Maps - Late Night Live - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    Throughout history, maps have always been as much about their creators and their worldviews as about reproducing an accurate replica of the world. Early maps were also about the unknown and how to display the borders of the known world. Monsters in illustration were often used to represent what lay beyond the edge of the world, and cartographers competed to create the best and scariest monsters on their creations.

    Professor and BBC documentary presenter Jeremy Brotton has produced a study of the cultural values embodied in maps and collected them in a book called A History of the World in Twelve Maps.
