TNA podcast: Defeating the Zeppelins

A podcast I have overlooked from the National Archives in England ( is one entitled Defeating the Zeppelins, a talk by Ian Castle at just under 50 minutes in length.

For almost two years during the First World War, German airships roamed over the British countryside, bombing towns and villages without fear of a significant response from the aircraft assigned to defend the country. But all that changed in the late summer of 1916 when a new weapon was introduced, one that spelt the end of the Zeppelin menace.

It can be downloaded from, or listened at,
