TNA podcast: Writing a history of one’s own times

If you grew up in post-WW2 Britain as I did you'll likely enjoy this short (28 minute) talk by Lord (Peter) Hennessy who among many other accomplishments is President of the Friends of The National Archives.
The talk is based on his latest book ‘Distilling the frenzy; writing the history of one’s own times’. It's not a how to book but an eloquent reflection of his experiences as a child of post-war Britain and how they've influenced him.
