Spanish History 101, EP 37: Isabel II (1833-1868)

We are now looking at the middle of the 19th Century when Spain slowly but fairly steadily begins to evolve into a a constitutional monarchy, where parliament and prime ministers (and not monarchs) determine national and foreign policy. Meanwhile, Queen Isabel II is busy occupying her time with her countless lovers. It’s a very confusing period which hopefully we have been able to simplify somewhat. The end of her reign would spell the end of the House of Bourbon in Spain, but only for a very brief time.

FILM REVIEW: Hispanoamerica

I’ve never done a film review to date, but this time we decided to look at a recent documentary that has come out featuring Hispanic America and the legacy off Spain on it. It’s the second in a series bent on reversing the infamous Black Legend which has affected Spain for decades. It’s an attractive revisionist story with beautiful filming and stunning revelations about this amazing culture of Latin America. But has it lived up to its expectations? Listen and I’ll let you know.
