Foreign Office Podcast

The British Foreign Office currently have a podcast Podcast entitled 'Britain, Bolívar & the independence of Latin America', in which Richard Smith discusses Simon Bolivar’s links with Britain and the role played by many hundreds of British volunteers who fought alongside him. It is interesting to see the way that the present British Foreign and Commonwealth Office - the heirs to the governments who turned a blind-eye to the departure of thousands of adventurers from British ports, despite public proclamations of official neutrality in the conflict - remember the events of two hundred years ago.
