1. Friday 2 February at 9, BBC 2, Timewatch programme on ‘The First Blitz’, including the excavation of Zeppelin remains by the Great War Archaeology Group. Timewatch page is here, but no details up as yet: they seem to follow broadcast.
2. Guardian extract from the late Polish author Ryszard Kapuscinski’s account of his childhood memories of 1945. Well worth a read.
3. Will shortly post something on Sir Thomas Inskip and Caligula’s horse: some useful links – biography from Churchill College Archives, and Time profile from his appointment in 1936.

The ‘First Blitz’ Timewatch page is now up, and the discussion board is also active. I happen to know that the historian who’s moderating it knows a bit about twentieth century war and society, so it’s worth checking out.
