National Archives podcasts to resume shortly

I contacted the National Archives in England (www.nationalarchives.gov.uk) last week to enquire as to why there had been no further podcasts on its site since March 27th. Web Content Manager Angela Mullen has kindly replied to say that it is planned for the podcasts to resume shortly, with further uploads normally taking place on Fridays.

The reasons for the break in provision was the General Election, and the rules of 'purdah', which restrict civil service activities for the duration of campaigning by the political parties standing for elections (see http://researchbriefings.parliament.uk/ResearchBriefing/Summary/SN05262). 

(With thanks to Angela Mullen)
