A History of the French in London

Professor Martyn Cornick was invited (with Professor Debra Kelly, University of Westminster) to speak on the live broadcast France Culture (equivalent of BBC Radio 4), ‘La Fabrique de l’Histoire’.

The programme treated the BBC’s efforts to foster resistance in France during World War 2, and to mark the publication of his co-edited book 'The History of the French in London' as well as Aurélie Luneau’s 'Je vous écris de France', a collection of hitherto unpublished letters from listeners to the BBC in France. The broadcast is available to listen to here:
