Melvyn Bragg’s radio 4 programme on the ‘History of Ideas’, In Our Time, has recently aired a number of programmes that are of direct relevance and interest to the Trust. In fact, one of our Trustees, Professor Almut Hintze (SOAS) was a guest on one of these programmes! So I thought I’d include some links through to the website where you can access these programmes and listen to them again.
