North Manchester FM: A Helping of History, Tuesday 4 June, 12-2pm

Join me on Tuesday at 12 for another Helping of History on North Manchester FM. This week, I’m talking Peterloo again… with another chance to parts of my interview with Polyp and Eva Schlunke, the creative team behind Peterloo: Witness to a Massacre, a new ‘verbatim’ graphic novel about the events of 16th August 1819.

A longer version of this interview was broadcast on Saturday’s Hannah’s Bookshelf, but as the topic is such a significant part of local history, I thought I’d share it with my Helping of History listeners as well. You can hear us discussing the book, and the historical sources, on Tuesday’s show.

In addition to this, I’ll also be taking my usual look through Yesterday’s Papers.

Catch the show on Tuesday at 12 on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
