FREE: Speechwriting, China and Pepys' Guitar


Tuesday, 1 May 2018 - Thursday, 31 May 2018

Stephen Church looks for the medieval outlaw in the tales of Robin Hood, Bridget Kendall explores Russia after communism, and Christopher Page takes a closer look at Samuel Pepys as a guitarist in his final lecture as Gresham Professor of Music.

Professor Vernon Bogdanor will give the final lecture of his current series on the UK's political parties as he explores the decline of the two-party system. And if you are up for a riddle, Professor Paul Cartledge unwraps the mystery that is ancient Sparta.
