1838 propaganda against the ill treatment of animals at London’s Smithfield market

On April 1st at 6.30 pm I am appearing on the new BBC2 series presented by Michael Portillo called Portillo’s State Secrets: Banned which draws on material from the National Archives to present different aspects of supposedly hidden history. I was interviewed amidst the cats waiting to be re-homed at the Potters Bar RSPCA  talking about the origins of the organisation in nineteenth century London.

There are 3 sections to each programme – the others on April 1st are Scientology and John Lennon ! I have no idea how it has been cut or whether it is worth watching but at least it is a good thing that animals are acknowledged to be a part of the nation’s history.

There’s a website with clips as well, of course, the opportunity to watch the programme after it has been broadcast.
