English Heritage; Clergy Lives

Heritage politics in the UK: Laurie Taylor asks if we've accepted a 'country house' version of our national past, in place of a more complex history. Also, everyday clergy lives.

Heritage politics in the UK - Laurie Taylor talks to Ruth Adams, the author of a new study which argues that powerful interest groups have championed a 'country house' version of our national past in place of a more complex and diverse history. Has the heritage lobby transformed the architectural heritage of the aristocracy from a minority interest to a cause with popular support? And, if so, at what cost? Also, Dr Caroline Gatrell discusses her sociological exploration of the every day lives of modern day parish priests with her co- author, Dr Nigel Peyton, the Bishop of Brechin.

Producer: Jayne Egerton.
