HistoryNeedsYou's October radio show with Stephen Lambert of EGH Media focussed on Halloween traditions old and new. We were joined by Rhiannon, a Wiccan priestess, and Zayed Zaheer, a British Asian Muslim. Interspersed by readings from Lady Tankerville's Encounters (an account of ghosts at Northumberland's famously haunted Chillingham Castle), it was a fascinating show.

Next month's show, to be broadcast on 13 November at 8pm GMT, will be on War and Remembrance.
In our two latest radio shows for EGH Media, Matthew discussed Richard III (including his own meeting with the king) and other monarchs or heads of state whose remains have no known resting place, including Alfred the Great.
If you missed either show, you can listen to them below.
Don't forget to tune in on April 23 for our special St George's Day show.
Following Matthew's recent radio show about The History of Christmas for EGH Media, he has created a Pinterest board with some of the images he tweeted during the live show. Follow this link to visit the board - it tells the story of how Santa Claus became red.
The History of Christmas radio show can be listened to using the audio player below.
A warm welcome, one and all, to what we hope will be an edutaining, and collaborative, new venture for HistoryNeedsYou.
