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.
