Magna Carta

Monday 18 December 2006 20:00-20:30 (Radio 4 FM)


Michael Portillo presents a series revisiting the great moments of history to discover that they often conceal other events of equal but forgotten importance.

Another document, signed two years after Magna Carta, was the true charter for the common man. Michael Portillo goes in search of this forgotten manifesto for English rural life.
