As we approach the end of our century, a six-part series examines previous fins de siècle. 1: The 1890s: High Victorian Noon
Memories of the 1890s - some of them vividly captured in early sound archive recordings - tend to concentrate on Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee of 1897. This was the acme of an imperial history already well on the wane, and many at the time noted the sharp contrast between Britain's global pride and the urban squalor and degradation so widespread back home. As the century approaches its end, the young H G Wells predicts the eventual death of the planet, while others begin to see more immediate dangers emanating from our erstwhile friend the Kaiser.
Producer Daniel Snowman
