GBA 109 Patrick by Getting Better Acquainted published on 2013/05/07 16:36:01 +0000 In GBA 109 we get better acquainted with Patrick. He talks British documentary film, the process of history, an academic appraisal of my dad, and romance verses analysis. We get into questions of art, inner life, the different effect of the two world wars in UK society, social documents and lots more Patrick Plugs: 2014 anniversary of WW1 - "it had a truly profound effect at the micro and macro levels of our society and this is a good moment to consider it and judge it's effects." And then he went on to discuss WW2's effect as of displacing the effects of both WW2 and guilt over the empire.
