Neil MacGregor is doing another radio series based around telling the history of ____ with objects. He’s already done Shakespeare’s Restless World (listened to the series/have the book but not yet read it) and The History of the World in 100 Objects (listened to half the series/going to buy the book). Now he’s doing Germany and the series seems to have just started with only three or four episodes up so far and a new one coming out every day. I’m going to be trying to follow this and either post a bit about each day or (what I think will happen) is do posts and updates as I can. If any of you want to listen to the series (I highly recommend any of MacGregor’s series as he’s a good narrator and can sum up information in a way that's easy to understand), here is the link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04dwbwz/episodes/guide.
