Here is an enthralling podcast of a meeting held at the Bishopsgate Institute, London, on 4 June 2013. Collectors of oral history should collect this! The panel of speakers consisted of Ronnie Kasrils, Ken Keable, Mary Chamberlain, Katherine Levine and Tom Bell and there are contributions from other Recruits who came from the audience, including John Rose, Bob Newland and  Graeme Whyte as well as the two YCL officials who were recruiters, George Bridges and Bob Allen.

Christabel Gurney, a former leader of the Anti-Apartheid Movement. also spoke.The meeting was organised by the Bishopsgate Institute together with the Rafael Samuel History Centre and it was chaired by Professor Barbara Taylor. Please be patient, as the podcast takes a minute or two to get going before Ronnie Kasrils launches into his speech.

This interesting report by the BBC, about the truck used for the "Secret Safari" arms smuggling operation, somehow manages to avoid mentioning that the drivers and tour guides were all white non-South Africans, mostly British people, acting in solidarity with the ANC.
