Nothing on the TV that could pass as contemporary British history this week.  For once, Radio 4 does not come to the rescue.

So there are no details of  programmes to be found on the TV and Radio page.

A few bit and bobs this week.  Elvis Costello read from his own memoire of Radio 4, the history of Jodrell Bank on BB4 and Dominic Sandbrook continues to occupy the space where decent contemporary British history should be in BBC2.

Details of all programmes can be found on the TV and Radio page.

una marson

A thin week.  Some good material on Radio 4, as is so often the case, this week on the abolition of the death penalty and the reasons by it has stayed abolished.  And Lenny Henry has a run of ten fifteen minute programmes on the struggle of black artists to find a place on the British stage and screen.  Other than that, very little for the cotemporary British historial  We do have part 2 of Dominic Sandbrook’s risibly bad history of British popular culture, Let Us Entertain You (am currently writing a long review of it and will post it on my other blog – https://weneedtotalkaboutdominic.wordpress.com – when I have finished.

Details of all programmes can be found on the TV and Radio page.
