Undoubted highlight of the week – three hours of coverage of the 1955 general election.  Truly unmissable.

Quite a bit of art this week, from Roy Strong (too often held up as icon of sixties London) to the pop art (too often a trite capitulation to consumerism).  Meanwhile, a true great of post-war British art, Francis Bacon, is consigned to Book of the Week on Radio 4.

Oh dear, even when Auntie does venture into the recent past her thoughts are dominated by war and great men.  So on Monday on BBC4 we have an evening of Churchill, war and war films.   And that is about it.

wrong with the world where one can watch more cookery programmes in one evening than post-war British history in an entire week.  Or is it that those of us who think that history is important are expected to read it in books.  Summer scheduling means that this week it is mainly re-runs.

The one high point is the second part of the Kavita Puri’s radio series Three Pounds in My Pocket which offers an engrossing oral history of Asian immigration to Britain and their experience of racism and resistance to it from the late 1960s and through the 1970s.
