Sound Archives: The 60th ann. of the Hungarian Revolution

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:38 pm on 26 October 2016

On Sunday, commemorations were held in Hungary and here in New Zealand to mark the 60th anniversary of the Hungarian Revolution in 1956. This was when the Hungarian people rose up against the Communist, Soviet-controlled government which had been in charge of their country since the end of the Second World War.

Radio programmes held in the archives of Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision take us back to this moment in history - and Sarah Johnston shares some of them with us.
