Eyewitness, 1930-1939: A History of the Twentieth Century in Sound
Eyewitness provides a rare and fascinating opportunity to hear the events of the century described by those who saw them happen. A wealth of BBC archive recordings, some never previously broadcast, is interwoven with an illuminating commentary by the historian Joanna Burke. Published in 10 volumes, Eyewitness examines the role and the life of the British people in each decade of the century.

Between the onset of the Depression in 1930 and the outbreak of war in 1939, social and political divisions deepened. Soaring unemployment, wage cuts, and the Means Test humiliated workers, and discontent showed itself in mass demonstrations such as the Jarrow March. Fascism gained a toe-hold in the UK with Sir Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists, and in 1936 the rival ideologies of fascism and communism found a battleground in the Spanish Civil War.

The decade provided few moments of celebration. Fred Perry won the Men’s Singles title at Wimbledon, and the coronation of George VI was a joyous occasion, but it was to be the last for some time. Voices such as Churchill and Chamberlain remind us of the political mood, but it is the testament of ordinary people buffeted by events beyond their control that are the most telling.

Thought-provoking and moving, these are the voices of the past, speaking to the present.

Diario de Clara Eugenia [The Diary of Clara Eugenia] (Texto Completo)
Clara Eugenia Reza y Pliego, joven mexicana de sociedad, recibe un regalo que cambiara su vision con respecto al mundo que la rodea: un diario. Convencida de que no tendra nada interesante que escribir, estrena las paginas con el recuento de los detalles mas cotidianos de se existencia. Lo que no imagina Clara Eugenia es que estos detalles, a primera vista triviales, conformaran, en conjunto un retrato colorido; tanto su vida como el pais daran un giro excepcional.

So pretexto de la moratoria de pagos que declaro en 1861 el gobierno del presidente Benito Juarez, Francia y un grupo de conservadores instaurarian el efimero Segundo Imperio Mexicano. El sueno romantico comienza el dia en que el archiduque Maximiliano y su esposa Carlota desembarcan en Veracruz, para fundar lo que ellos mismos llamarian “el mas hermoso imperio del mundo”.

En la paginas del Diario de Clara Eugenia aparecen descritos, con sensibilidad y buen humor, los sucesos mas relevantes en los que se ve involucrada: las llegada de los emperadores, las tertulias, los bailes y recepciones; pero tambien los levantamientos del pueblo y la pugna entre conservadores y liberales. Porlo tanto, Clara Eugenia Reza y Pliego es, en palabras del mismo autor, una testigo fuera de serie que vive intensamente este momento historico, pues ella, su familia y su amor se ven envueltos en el gran dilemma en que se debate Mexico.

A young Mexican lady encounters the society of the French Imperial court that was home to Maximilian and his wife.

    Biografia novelada ambientada en el Japon de la segunda mitad del s. 19 basada en la vida de Okichi, joven de extraordinaria belleza y origen humilde que, contra su voluntad, llego a convertirse en la concubina del primer consul americano enviado a Japon. Cuando el diplomatico regreso a su tierra, nadie en la aldea se compadecio de Okichi ni se responsabilizo por lo que le habia hecho. Le dieron la espalda, tratandola como a una paria que no merecia vivir entre ellos. Su desgraciada vida, teñida de fatalismo, tuvo un dramatico y emotivo final.A partir de unos cuantos datos que han llegado hasta nuestros dias, Rei Kimura reconstruye la turbulenta existencia de una joven humilde que tras su muerte fue elevada por el fervor popular a la categoria de martir y cuyos ecos han logrado trascender la historia para convertirse en leyenda. Es una narracion en la que se combina el lirismo de una historia de amor inolvidable con el dramatismo de haber sido protagonizada por una mujer de carne y hueso.
