8:12 Insight : Is Brexit Inevitable?
Britain's historic decision to leave the EU was unequivocal. But the referendum isn't the end of the matter. In fact, it's only the start. The British government has to trigger 'Article 50' - the legal route to exit - at which point it has two years to agree parting terms with the rest of the EU. Some believe no British government would pull that trigger, others think no government could avoid pulling it. The BBC's Maria Margaronis explores the issues.
8:38 The Spanish Revolution
Eighty years ago this month a revolution got underway in Spain that was to see millions of workers take over their workplaces and run them as collectives. Volunteers from around the world - including Kiwis - flocked to Spain to defend the republican government against the fascist forces of General Franco. Anarchist historian Barry Pateman, historian and author of Kiwi Companeros: New Zealand and the Spanish Civil War Mark Derby, and Catalan politics student Daniel Francesc Benson-Guiu discuss the Spanish revolution and its legacy.
