Making a long overdue visit to the festival, David Kynaston joins us to discuss the latest volume in his acclaimed Tales of a New Jerusalem series on twentieth century British history (1945-1979). The latest volume, A Northern Wind, vividly brings to life the period between 1962 and 1965. He’ll be joined by former Labour MP Alan Johnson, whose series of memoirs similarly stretch from the fifties to the late noughties. Expect an enthralling conversation about recording the past as well as an exploration of the period’s key events – the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Big Freeze, JFK’s assassination, and Churchill’s funeral – as well as the stories of everyday people living through this history.
