In Our Time
Melvyn Bragg and guests discuss the history of ideas
As part of Radio 4’s Listener Week, the episode of In Our Time on Thursday 27th November will feature a subject suggested by a listener. To tell us the idea you’d like us to include, click on Contact Us above or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
There’s no such thing as a ‘typical’ In Our Time subject – the programme ranges widely across the history of ideas, from prehistory to the present day. But most of our topics fall into one of five categories: history, philosophy, science, religion or culture. A good topic might be a historical event, an individual, an intellectual movement or a fascinating area of science. You’ll get a good feel for what makes a good IOT subject (and see what we’ve done before) from the archive.
