Nine programmes about government, society, and ideas in early Stuart England
1: The Central Government and the Local Community
The activities of the central government in early seventeenth-century England were limited both by its own resources and by stubborn local patriotism and local interests.
Senior Lecturer in History at University College, Cardiff shows how this problem was as difficult for Cromwell to solve as it had been for Charles I, and discusses the attempts which their governments made to assert their authority.
With readings from contemporary sources by Gary Watson and John Glen
