Anarchism In The UK
With "Britain's Most Dangerous Man" Ian Bone
Welcome to Anarchism In The UK radio series!
January 23, 2009 06:42 AM PST
"Good evening anarchists, everywhere!"
Because Resonance doesn't podcast the show itself, I thought this might be a useful resource for people that did not manage to catch the live broadcasts of the show, either on FM radio or via the web.
At the moment this page is missing some shows, but hopefully the holes will be plugged in the near future.

January 23, 2009 07:59 AM PST
First broadcast Sunday 21st September 2008 on Resonance FM
"Fascinating interviewing John Rety tonight - so many stories he was telling me afterwards. He is disarmingly modest: 'I think I may have been part of the resistence in Budapest during the war - I was always taking parcels to people in hiding...'
"John was 9 years old at the outbreak of war and is now 78 with humour and twinkling eye undimmed. His stories of bohemian London in the early 1950s with the Augustus Johns bunging money to finance 'Freedom' and much more - ‘I walked into a coffee bar off Charing Cross Road and stayed there for two years’.
"John was secretary of the Anarchist Federation of Britain - an honour given to few. He really should write his autobiography. All Hail Comrade Rety."
Anarchism In The UK #1: PHIL RUFF on PETER THE PAINTER
January 23, 2009 06:44 AM PST
First broadcast Sunday 14th September 2008 on Resonance FM
"On 16th December 1910 five City of London policemen were shot and three of them killed, when they were called to investigate suspicious noises coming from a property adjacent to a jeweller’s shop in Houndsditch.
"The 'Houndsditch Murders' are still regarded today as the single worst police murder in British history. The Latvian anarchists held responsible entered into East London folklore when, trapped inside a house in Stepney, they took on Winston Churchill and the British Army in “The Siege of Sidney Street”. Two died, but no one ever accounted for the mysterious 'Peter the Painter', popularly supposed to be the leader of the gang and to have escaped the burning house during the battle.
"The story inspired two major feature films – The Man Who Knew Too Much (Alfred Hitchcock, 1934), and The Siege of Sidney Street (Jimmy Sangster, 1960) – as well as a slew of books, all with different theories on the background to the shootings and the identity of those involved: Peter the Painter was a tsarist police agent, he was Stalin, he was the brother of a Metropolitan Police interpreter, he never existed, he did exist and became an agent of Lenin’s Cheka in Russia.
"At the start of the 1970s, when the bombing campaign of the Angry Brigade pushed the word “anarchist” back into the headlines, one of the groups under investigation by Special Branch called itself 'The Siege of Sidney Street Appreciation Society'. As recently as 2003 one of the contributors to a London Weekend Television documentary about the Houndsditch Murders called Peter the Painter 'the Osama Bin Laden of his time'.
"Another contributor to that LWT documentary, Philip Ruff, has looked for an answer to the mystery of 'Peter the Painter' where no one else (amazingly) has ever thought to look: inside Latvia .
"Phil’s detective work in Latvia since 1988 has resulted in proof positive of the real identity of 'Peter the Painter' - Janis Zhaklis - and unearthed the real story of his life and revolutionary career. But more than that, Phil has opened a window on the hitherto unknown history of Latvian anarchism and of the 1905 revolution in the Baltic which gave rise to it. This wider story reveals the violent events in London – shocking as they may appear - to be part of a much bigger story of class war, revolution and survival."
Interviews with anarchist activists, trouble makers, musicians and film directors.
