In Our Time on Radio 4

Melvyn Bragg’s radio 4 programme on the ‘History of Ideas’, In Our Time, has recently aired a number of programmes that are of direct relevance and interest to the Trust. In fact, one of our Trustees, Professor Almut Hintze (SOAS) was a guest on one of these programmes! So I thought I’d include some links through to the website where you can access these programmes and listen to them again.

The Shahnameh of Ferdowsi:

The Cult of Mithras (with Almut Hintze):

The Upanishads:

and then earlier in the series:

The An Lushan Rebellion:

The Safavid Dynasty of Iran:

Islamic Law and its Origins:

The Bhagavad Gita:


The Indian Mutiny:

and there are many more!
