The Illustrated London News, June 11, 1842

Wednesday 16 January 2008 11:00-11:30 (Radio 4 FM)


Peter Snow presents a history series in which the stories are provided by archive newspapers.

Just days after its first appearance on the news-stands, the ILN features the latest on the fall-out from an attempt on the life of Queen Victoria and news of test-runs for the state-of-the-art atmospheric railway at Wormwood Scrubs. The main feature, however, describes the continued agonising over the British army's catastrophic retreat from Kabul.
