Thread Name: BS: Chartism
Subject: RE: BS: Chartism
I was watching a BBC light entertainment show tonight
that somehow touched on a Chartist confrontation with the military in Wales...
Surprising content amidst all the amusing banter...???
"In a first for the series, father-and-son comedy double-act Jack and Michael Whitehall
join forces to investigate their family tree.
They discover the tragedy that left Jack’s great grandfather (Michael’s grandfather) an orphan.
And tracing their line back to Wales in the 1830s,
they find out about a Tory ancestor's role in opposing the Chartist movement for wider voting rights."
