TNA podcast - British colonial records

The latest podcast from the National Archives in England is entitled Colonial lives, careers and policies: researching printed papers of the British colonial governments. From the site:

The printed papers of colonial governments held by the Colonial Office, including government gazettes and sessional papers of colonial assemblies and parliaments, contain a wealth of detail for historians and genealogists. This podcast outlines the content of the printed papers from the first half of the 19th century to the end of empire; a rich but underused resource.

The speaker is Dan Gilfoyle, and the talk runs to just under 33 minutes in length. To listen visit http://media.nationalarchives.gov.uk/index.php/colonial-lives-careers-and-policies-researching-printed-papers-of-the-british-colonial-governments/ or download from iTunes.
