The Belgrano Diary

4.5/5

Critic Rating

The sinking of the General Belgrano was the bloodiest and most controversial military action of the Falklands War. This is the story of government cover-ups and conspiracies; of whistleblowers, crusading politicians and journalists fighting for the story. And caught in the middle of it all, a young officer whose account of what happened contradicted Margaret Thatcher’s in every crucial detail.A new six-part podcast series, hosted by Andrew O'Hagan.Listen to the full series with bonus material here: https://lrb.me/belgranodiaryscGet in touch: podcasts@lrb.co.uk Hosted on Acast.

Critic Reviews

Score: 5

Jude Rogers • The Guardian Apr 13, 2024

"...excellent BBC and ITV archive recordings, officer diaries and LRB pieces from the time by the Labour MP Tam Dalyell. O’Hagan’s got a great podcast voice, all Glasgow fog and bite, bringing levity to the military material. "

James Marriot • The Times UK Apr 11, 2024

"There’s brilliant archive audio...The central character is most compelling...the journey to get there makes this podcast worth your time. It’s a remarkably vivid account of the anticipation and fear of war. The diary is matched with great editing."
