Nine programmes about government, society, and ideas in early Stuart England
7: Social Change and the Law
The law was very important in both the social and political life of early seventeenth-century England. The pressures of social and economic change also put the lawyers in the position of arbitrating between the values of an old and of a new form of society.
ERIC Ives
Lecturer in History at the University of Liverpool discusses the role of the lawyers as agents of change, their participation in a changing society, and their connections with puritanism, commercial expansion and constitutional opposition.

The ninth of a series of programmes

by IDRIS PARRY , Professor of Modern German Literature in the University of Manchester
'Artists are fools. They think they can achieve the impossible. That girl was a fool. too, when she said she could spin straw into gold. She knew it was impossible. But the little man who comes from the dark and offers to help? He is, I believe, an image of the gods, devilish in his darkness but divine in his promises.'
Idris Parry uses the insight of two highly sophisticated artists in order to look below the surface of a familiar nursery tale.
Second broadcast followed by an interlude at 10.55
