048 – Men at Arms

This episode I take a short look at the history of Policing in the 19th century United Kingdom. From a perceived military force, the Metropolitan Police became a civilian entity that sought to serve all the people of London and the Kingdom at large.

036 – How the Victorians took us to the moon

This pre-Christmas episode was such a great opportunity! I got to speak with Dr Iwan Morus about his new Victorian Era book on the science and people of the Victorian era and how it has directly influenced us to thisĀ  day.

His book “How the Victorians took us to the moon” is just out now and makes an excellent Christmas gift.
