The Industrial Revolution
Reconsidered by Asa Briggs
Professor of Modern History in the University of Leeds
Our modern, mechanised, urban society has its roots in the Industrial Revolution of the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In this series of six programmes Professor Briggs reviews our ideas of the Industrial Revolution in the light of modern research and contemporary issues. In each broadcast he introduces a specialist on some aspect of the subject.
3-Workshop and Farm
Professor Briggs discusses with 0. R. McGregor, Lecturer in Sociology at
Bedford College, London, whether there was an agrarian revolution ' side by side with the industrial revolution. Was there enough food for the new, growing, working population? Did this urban population itself come from the farms? How was Britain's import trade affected?
