STUART MACONIE: JARROW ROAD TO THE DEEP SOUTH
In October 2016, writers and broadcaster Stuart Maconie walked 300 miles from Jarrow to London retracing the famous Jarrow Crusade 80 years on, through a divided, complex country that echoes 1936 in many ways. From choral evensong to curry house, from austerity to affluence, from Wearside to Westminster, join him on an entertaining, impassioned, enlightening journey through Britain then and now.
Stuart is a bestselling author of travel, culture and social history books as well as one of Britain’s best known radio presenters across many BBC networks
