When I started this blog, it was part of my intention to develop a broad overview of how contemporary British history is perceived in the media. This includes both the presentation of recent history in documentary and drama and its reinterpretation through the print and broadcast news. This should stand alongside the academic historiography in mapping how the present conditions our understanding of the past.
This monitoring of how the past is viewed in a present-minded way has not featured on this blog as I had hoped, so I am reinstating a weekly preview of relevant TV and radio programmes.
Whether I can keep it up remains to be seen.
A listing of programmes for the week to Saturday 29th March can be found on the TV and radio pages
