BBC's Witness Podcast: Trinidad Coup - July 27th, 1990

For persons interested in recent global history and events around the world, there's no better podcast to follow than BBC World's Witness. [LINK]

Appropriately subtitled "The story of our times told by the people who were there", Witness gives us first hand accounts of events in recent history, told by the people who were there.  Today's episode harks back to one of the defining events in the history of Trinidad & Tobago, with a witness account by one of the Caribbean's foremost journalists.

Twenty years ago a small group of radical muslims tried to take over the government on the Caribbean island of Trinidad.  Debbie Ransome lived through it all.
