Listen Up: C17th trans-Atlantic white child slavery
Click to access BBC i-player
Interested to know about the trans-Atlantic white child slave trade at the turn of the late 17th century? Whether or not you were able to attend last week's talk by Dr Richard Hayes Phillips at the Public Records Office of Northern Ireland, you might like to listen in to an interview he gave Radio Ulster's Sunday Sequence programme at the weekend.

A recording of this interview, in which Dr Hayes Phillips talks about his latest book Without Indentures, Index to White Slave Children in Colonial Court Records, is available on the BBC I-player for the next six days. It begins at around 1 hour 13 minutes 30 seconds in the recording and lasts for approximately ten minutes.

As far as I can tell, radio programmes are accessible via i-player internationally.
