The Tony Benn Tapes vol.2 (playback selected recordings he made 70s/80s , 2 tapes)

£3.99

Product description

Late each night for over 25 years, the late Labour MP and former Secretary of State, Tony Benn, sat alone and dictated onto tape his account of the daily events at the heart of government. The immediacy, passion and mood is striking as he unburdens himself of the pressure and stress, trials and tribulations of government and opposition with accounts veering from anecdotal to almost confessional.

These tapes consist of the second highly acclaimed Radio 4 series, where Benn revealed what he discovered behind the scenes in the nuclear industry - and why he subsequently believed nuclear power was unsafe.

He recalls what really happened during Cabinet reshuffles by Harold Wilson and Jim Callaghan, and he traces the split in the party following its 1979 defeat, the emergence of the SDP, and his challenge for the Deputy Leadership, against Denis Healey.

In the accompanying booklet (sample Photo Two), Tony gives further background to these historic recordings.
