Oxford DNB and National Archives podcasts

One of the things that should make one more optimistic about the future of the public history of the First World War is the large number of high quality primary and secondary sources being made available on the web. For example, here is a nicely presented collection of lives from the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography covering different aspects of the war. And here are podcasts from the National Archives, with readings from interesting files (I rather like the archivist’s emphasis that actually, finding such good material is pretty rare – they obviously want to lower expectations before they get swamped with people demanding the same level of information on their relatives).
