This may interest UK members. This week BBC Radio 4 is serialising the book by Kassia St Clair focusing mainly on the 1907 Peking-Paris race but also looking at the political and social history of the era leading up to World War 1. Monday to Friday at 9.45 am and on BBC Sounds.

Just heard the first one;  I dare say those more au fait with the era might find the odd nit to pick but I enjoyed it. Now that's what I call nostalgia - unlike some of the over excited bilge posted here recently  .Some of it possibly by myself. .
