Iraq Inquiry Executive Summary: The Chilcot Report

In 2003, for the first time since the Second World War, the United Kingdom took part in an opposed invasion and full-scale occupation of a sovereign state - Iraq.

Cabinet decided on 17th March to join the US-led invasion of Iraq, assuming there was no last-minute capitulation by Saddam Hussein. That decision was ratified by Parliament the next day and implemented the night after that.

In June 2009, Prime Minister Gordon Brown ordered an Inquiry to be conducted to identify lessons that could be learned from the Iraq conflict. The inquiry was to not only look at the conflict and post-conflict phases, but additionally it was to inquire into the decision to carry out the invasion and the intelligence that led to that decision.

This audiobook is an unabridged reading of that report's executive summary.

Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus

Victor Frankenstein is a driven man. His single-minded scientific drive has controlled his life from childhood. It has driven him to do the unthinkable, to carry out fiendish, craven tasks, to do that which only God has done before.

His goal of creating life - a living, thinking being, a man - has come to pass. Little did he expect that his zeal would forge a monster, an intelligent being set upon Victor's complete destruction.

The story of Frankenstein has become a rightful classic of its time. The doctor and his monster stand preeminent in the culture of horror stories, an equal of the vampire and the werewolf. Mary Shelly has crafted a tale of desire, horror and despair that has stood the test of time.
