A personal view by James Burke in ten parts 3: Point of View
In the early 15th century most people thought the earth was flat. Then some social climbers from
Florence went on a cultural package tour to Greece, while a Florentine architect tried his hand at painting, and the result was a new kind of geometry which was to change the world.
Art and architecture were transformed almost overnight. Town planning was born. And as the earth itself began to change shape, came an earth-shattering discovery in the Atlantic.... Written and presented by JAMES BURKE

by Barbara Castle with Donald MacCormick
A distinguished veteran of Westminster parliamentary politics, Barbara Castle held no less than four Cabinet posts during the Labour Governments of the 1960s and 70s. She is still an active politician, as a Member of the European Parliament for Greater Manchester North and Leader of the British Labour group in Strasburg. In the first of four programmes she looks back on her early life in Bradford and at Oxford, on her first job as a shop assistant in the 1930s and on her decision to move to London to look for work.
She talks to
Donald MacCormick about the people and events which shaped her early political career and led to her election as a Labour MP in 1945. She became
Parliamentary Private Secretary to a young, unknown President of the Board of Trade, Harold Wilson.
