BWM is correct - we limit the UK political chatter to one thread. This one has been renamed to the source - BBC Radio 4, and let it run as a general place to post links to their various program. It just happened to start with the Thatcher program. Future new threads may be moved into this topic.

I recognised him ;)

I thought there were some interesting new (to me) perspectives made in the programme: the leadup to the Union of Crowns in 1707 (in particular the English sabotage of the Darien scheme), the attitude of Thatcher to the Scots, and Cameron's reaction to 'winning' the independence referendum in 2014.

On BBC Radio 4 this morning, the first episode in a new series from Jon Ronson.

Things Fell Apart

If you've ever yelled at someone on social media about, say, cancel culture or mask-wearing, then you are a soldier in the culture wars - those everyday battles for dominance between conflicting values. The acclaimed writer and podcaster Jon Ronson has seen friends swallowed up in them to the extent that it's ruined their lives. Jon was curious to learn how things fell apart, and so he went back into the history of the culture wars to find some of the origin stories: the pebbles thrown in the pond, creating the ripples that led us to where we are today. He had no idea what he'd find, but he's uncovered some extraordinary people and the strangest, yet most consequential tales.

Episode 1 - 1000 Dolls

It's the early 1970s. Frank Schaeffer is an American kid living in the Swiss Alps – the son of an influential Christian art historian - who daydreams of one day making Hollywood films. But for that he needs a show-reel to prove himself. The ripples of Frank's creative ambitions will help trigger one of America's most violent culture wars - one that rages to this day

It was an interesting listen. Sadly too apt in this day and age.
