Principal C. GRANT ROBERTSON, ' Empire Builders—III, Warren Hastings.' S.B. from Birmingham

on 2LO London

View in Radio Times

THE third of the Empire-Builders of whom
Principal Grant Robertson will speak in his series is one of the most tragic figures that even the stormy history of India can show. The Proconsul who won India for Britain was then accused of tyranny, extortion and peculation. His trial was the sensation of the eighteenth century, and it brought together such a galaxy of orators as has never met together in England before or since.
