  1. Titanic: the official story | The National Archives

    Using documents from The National Archives, James Cronan will take you through the history of the ship, from its construction and launch to its fateful end. James Cronan is a records specialist in diplomatic and colonial records. His interest in all things Titanic stems from the fact that his great-grandfather was a crewman on board the stricken ship. He has worked at The National Archives for 17 years, at Chancery Lane, the Family Records Centre and Kew.

  2. Beyond the Shock Machine

    ABC Radio National: "In the summer of 1961 Stanley Milgram, a 27-year-old associate professor of psychology at Yale University, conducted a series of controversial experiments designed to test the limits of obedience. Volunteers in the experiment were told to give electric shocks to a person they could hear screaming in pain in the room next door. Seemingly ordinary people turned into torturers. Much has been written about Milgram and his experiments. But there’s a missing part to the story — the voices of people who took part. Gina Perry goes in search of those who participated in what’s been described as the most widely cited and provocative set of experiments in social psychology."
