BBC Radio 4 is in the middle of a lunchtime series examining the history of terrorism - Terror Through Time, presented by Feargal Keane.
The programmes are at 1345 each day, and run for fifteen minutes. I listended to Fridays, which mostly featured the Sykes-Picot Agreement, one of those rather shameful episodes of our history that most Britons know very little about. I personally found it a little slow paced, but with six more episodes to come, and a lot of ground to cover, that will surely change.
The academic advisor for the programme was the excellent Richard English of St Andrews University, whose "Terrorism: How to Respond" is important reading to anyone studying this subject.
