This morning I listened to 'The Long View' - Radio Four's programme in which the Guardian's Jonathan Freedland takes a historical subject and examines it from the standpoint of a 21st century liberal. Each week guests and experts are brought in. And who better to talk about the Jacobites, Bonnie Prince Charlie and the 'Forty-Five' than IRA/Sinn Fein's own Danny Morrison ?
Next week - the work of nineteenth century children's campaigners Barnardo and Shaftesbury - with special guest Marc Dutroux.
