A Blaze of Autumn Sunshine: The Last Diaries with Tony Benn

Play
Read more
To celebrate the publication of this final volume of his diaries, Tony Benn, in conversation with author, columnist and commentator Owen Jones, reflects on both the public and personal events of the last five years.

Covering the fall of New Labour, tireless campaigning against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and passionate commitment to encouraging public debate and demonstrations, A Blaze of Autumn Sunshine also provides a highly personal insight into the challenges of old age, failing health and widowhood. Finally, we share in Tony Benn's hopes for the future based on his experiences, insight and his natural optimism.

Tony Benn is the longest serving MP in the history of the Labour Party. He left Parliament in 2001, after more than half a century in the House of Commons, famously saying that leaving would give him more time to devote to politics. He is the author of many books including nine volumes of diaries and the childhood memoir Dare to be a Daniel.

This event was organised in partnership with Newham Bookshop.

In this third podcast, presented by Bristol Festival of Ideas and sponsored by the Philosopher's Magazine, George Miller looks back at some of the highlights of the 2008 Bristol Festival of Ideas.

Julian Baggini, author of 'Atheism: A Short Introduction', discusses matters of atheism, agnosticism and God with Rev. Robert Grimley, Dean of Bristol Cathedral, and agnostic Mark Vernon, who in 'After Atheism', argues that a committed, even passionate, agnosticism is vital for the future of our planet and our souls.

This debate is followed by Tony Benn, veteran Labour politician, who talks about his life after politics and changes in the Labour party.

The final speaker in this month's podcast is Astrid Proll, a member of the early Baader-Meinhof gang, who talks about Germany in 1968 and what happened afterwards.

This podcast is 28 minutes long (26MB), and is the third in a series that will be issued each month from now until autumn. If you would like to hear more interviews with selected speakers from this year's Festival, please visit our website at: www.ideasfestival.co.uk/audio.html.

Presented by Bristol Festival of Ideas (www.ideasfestival.co.uk) and the Philosopher's Magazine (www.philosophersnet.com).

Sue Lawley's castaway on Desert Island Discs this week is the Rt Hon Tony Benn MP.

He'll be discussing his long and turbulent career as one of this country's most eloquent socialists - he served in every Labour government of the 1960s and 1970s. He'll also be talking about the many stories that have always surrounded him: is it true, for example, that he is 'wired for sound' and records every conversation he has? And has he really drunk enough cups of tea in his lifetime to displace the QE2?

[Taken from the original programme material for this archive edition of Desert Island Discs]
