In the latest episode of their podcast about all things 17th century, Paul and Miranda talk to historian Jonathan Healey, author of an ambitious new narrative history of the period. In 'The Blazing World', Healey brings a social historian's eye for telling detail to an age of tumult and revolution in England and beyond. He talks about the challenges of combining an overview of the century's dramatic political upheavals with insights into the social changes that transformed people's everyday lives.
'1666 and All That' is presented by Paul Lay and Miranda Malins. The producer is Hugh Costello. Original music by George Taylor. The episode is mixed by Alfie Thompson.
