Update on National Archives podcasts

Thanks to reader Jacqui Kirk (@genealgenie) who on the back of my recent post about the lack of TNA podcasts in recent months (see http://britishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/has-national-archives-stopping.html) contacted the archive's User Advisory Group to enquire as to the reason. The reply was that it is all down to recent staff changes, but with a promise to add more soon.

As if to make good on that promise, a new podcast has been uploaded, the first since January. It is a talk just under 45 minutes long by Heidi Thomas entitled Researching Call the Midwife, and available to listen to at http://media.nationalarchives.gov.uk/index.php/heidi-thomas-researching-call-midwife/ or via iTunes.

Incidentally, the National Archives is advertyising for a new Collections Knowledge Manager, to help with the management of its online systems - full job specs at https://www.civilservicejobs.service.gov.uk/csr/jobs.cgi?jcode=1491644, the deadline for applications is June 1st.

(Additional thanks to @DavidUnderdown9 for heads up on the new podcast upload)
