Professor Fox on the Nazis’ attempts to appeal to Scottish nationalists during WW2

Tuesday 28 November 2017

Professor Jo Fox, the Institute of Historical Research’s (IHR) incoming director, examines the Nazis’ attempts to appeal to Scottish nationalists through radio broadcasts from ‘secret stations’ such as Radio Caledonia. In the 28-minute BBC Radio 4 programme she draws attention to the ‘lost’ transcripts of Radio Caledonia and reveals that its presenter Donald Grant was not executed for treason, escaping the fate of William Joyce (‘Lord Haw-Haw’), broadcaster of Nazi propaganda to Britain from Germany during World War Two.
