In the nineteenth century’ is a podcast series about the wild, wonderful, brave, eccentric, and at times dastardly, people who characterised this remarkable period. It looks at their inspiring discoveries and reforms, and the sometimes, shameful events and spectacles they created. Some historians have referred to it as ‘the long nineteenth century’ spanning 125 years between the French Revolution in 1789 through to the outbreak of the first world war in 1914. The dramatic changes and discoveries that took place created a legacy which has lived well into the twentieth century touching our lives today.
