James Cook Dicusssion Broadcast on Radio


CCS member Sophie Forgan took part in a discussion on BBC radio about Captain Cook.

The programme was first broadcast on 3 December, 2015, on Radio 4 as part of the series "In Our Time", presented by Melvyn Bragg, which explores the history of ideas.

A podcast of the programme is available to listen to, and to download, at www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06qkrks

The podcast is longer than the original broadcast as it contains an extra discussion of the main points the guests felt were missed during the programme.

Sophie Forgan is chair of the trustees of the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, Whiby.
The other two guests were Simon Schaffer, University of Cambridge, and Rebekah Higgit, University of Kent.
