Tortoise Lates: History
This evening will bring together well-known historians, best-selling authors, Tortoise editors and a bona fide national treasure to explore history in a new way.
We’ll hear untold stories and share experiences that will challenge what we think we know about our past, and maybe even change the way we look at the world today.
Gyles Brandreth, national treasure and regular contestant in Radio 4’s ‘Just a Minute’ takes us on a romp through British history with a series of 60-second stories, told (of course) without hesitation, repetition, or deviation. Tortoise editor Liz Moseley will attempt to keep order.
