On the Record at The National Archives: Heroic deeds (trailer)

In our latest three-part podcast series we’ll be exploring stories in our collection with the theme of heroic deeds.

You’ll hear about spies parachuting into enemy territories and knights slaying dragons. You’ll also hear about health inspectors trying to improve the living conditions of poor Londoners, and leaders using their skills to organise for change.

Part one in the series will be available to download on Thursday 29 October.
