The Rest is History: The Palace Letters

From Lately, 10:49 pm on 16 July 2020

It's time for the Rest is History and tonight we're looking at the big historical story of the week! On Tuesday The National Archives of Australia released the so-called Palace Papers, correspondence between Governor-General John Kerr and Buckingham Palace from 1975. To explain the significance of this release, and what has been revealed I'm joined in the Wellington Studio by RNZ producer and history swot Robert Kelly.
