A series of eight weekly conversations about the concept of equality and the changing social and political attitudes towards it.
Is British society becoming more egalitarian? What, in any case, does equality really mean? By Richard Wollheim: "All I'm concerned with in thinking about equality is certain kinds of imperfections which I think should be removed from society" and T. E. Utley: "I don't believe that men are in fact born equal, and I don't believe they are destined to be equal."
Chairman John Vaizey
Producer Daniel Snowman
(8 May: Equality in the Past)
Followed by an interlude.
