The first movement for the betterment of working Conditions in Great Britain was something of a nineteenth-century bogey. Like the threat of 'Boney' a few years earlier, it was for a time a constant fear to those in possession '. Roughly a hundred years ago it hung over the industrial districts like an ominous, sooty sky which could not be dispersed...
From this distance of time, the People's Charter - with its demands for universal manhood suffrage, secret ballot, salaries for M.P.s. and general elections each year; that any person should be eligible to stand for Parliament; and that all constituencies should be of equal size - does not appear unreasonable. All the demands but one have since been granted in peaceful, progressive legislation. It is not easy now to understand why there should have been so much alarm.
The story of this nation-wide movement will be treated in this programme geographically, showing it as a force in men's minds not only in London but in Scotland, Wales, Manchester, and Birmingham. In words based on records and reports of the time, these districts will speak for themselves, unifying the common theme and bringing the action into dramatic and just perspective.
