A History Of The World: 97

Today the endlessly fascinating BBC Radio 4 series, A History of the World in 100 Objects did number 97 a 1966 drawing by David Hockney, In A Dull Village.
It's worth the licence fee itself etc etc.
Neil MacGregor was speaking from the heart, and fessed up that a key subtext to his history was sex and the world's changing attitudes towards it.
Fagburn was really moved by today's programme.
Thank you, Neil.


  1. I just listened to this.
    Yes, very moving indeed.
    Thank you xxx

  2. That whole Cavafy series is wonderful.
