Friendship

Friday, December 4th, 2020

In this episode, the Histories of the Unexpected duo, James and Sam, make their way through the archives to investigate the wonderfully pleasant expected history of FRIENDSHIP! Which is all about Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie and friendship at first sight; it’s about diary-writing, letter-writing and the history of emotions, as well as bereavement, falling in love; it’s about Francis Bacon, Cicero and political; as well as Penal Laws and the Catholics in eighteenth-century Ireland, and of course it’s also all about the history of cycling clubs! Of course it is!
