Promoting a protest at Warwick propelled Dr Andrew Whitehead (MA Social History, 1989; PhD History, 2013) towards a career in journalism. Having joined as a trainee at the BBC for just three months, Andrew went on to spend 35 years with BBC News. In his last role as Editor of BBC World Service News, Andrew was responsible for programming on the BBC's most widely listened to radio network, with a global weekly reach of about 100 million listeners.
Andrew returned to campus earlier this year, where he spoke at a Careers event for History students, and was interviewed by final year History student Enoch Mukungu (pictured left).
The Warwick PG History Podcast released today is titled 'Queer(in)g History'! Host Erin Geraghty is joined by our convenor Hannah Ayres and the brilliant queer historian Sue Lomos to discuss queer & Black history, museums, space, time, and new methods of researching history.
