War – The Human Cost
Partially broadcast 22/09/11 on Resonance FM
Continuing our month of shows about War Comics, we’re proud to broadcast a final panel discussion recorded at the ‘Comics and conflicts’ conference at the Imperial War Museum, August 2011. Alex Fitch chairs a discussion on ‘The personal and the political’ as the publisher and two of the contributing artists – Sean Duffield, Daniel Locke and Ben Naylor – talk about their anthology War: The Human Cost. They are also joined on stage by writer Eileen Cassavetti and cartoonist Francesca Cassavetti who published her mother’s wartime journal Philip and Helena in comic book format.
(Please note: this is the penultimate episode of Panel Borders to be broadcast on a Thursday evening, before the show moves to Sunday nights from October)
