Tune in for election night 1910 this Saturday

The story of the 1910 General Elections Peers against the People and the dramatic is the subject of Carolyn Quinn's documentary, broadcast this Saturday night at 8.30pm on the BBC Parliament channel.

If you stay tuned at 8.30pm, you could watch me trying to do my best AJP Taylor impression, giving a TV lecture 'Political Lessons from 1910' which goes out at 8.30pm after the documentary.

As regular readers of Next Left (and Our Kingdom) might recall, it is the dramatic story of the fight for and against democracy and, curiously, of a very Lib-Lab political triumph for reform over the forces of conservatism and reaction.

Happy times!
