BBC Radio 4's 90 part history of the British Empire resumes on Monday (3.45pm) with episode 61. They seem to have changed the episode plan from what it was a couple of months ago, which showed this episode being about Ireland. But the current stage in the timeline, the late 19th century, makes it inevitable that there will be episodes about Ireland later in the week. Episodes remain online for about a week. Worth a listen.
UPDATE: Episode 62 is The Irish Question.
