The Belgrano Diary

10:30 AM GMT+1 on April 14, 2024

    The Belgrano Diary - A new six-part series exploring the contentious sinking of the Argentine ship General Belgrano in May 1982. The sinking, which was caused by torpedoes fired by a British submarine in the Falklands War, resulted in the deaths of 323 men on board. 

    Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher claimed that the sinking was a matter of self-defence, but as this series by London Review of Books explores, it was then claimed that the ship was actually leaving the area at the time and did not pose an immediate threat. This informative series looks at what happened, from the conspiracies to the whistleblowers who helped expose the truth.
