As part of Explore Your Archives, Reading historians Professor Kate Williams and Dr Jacqui Turner will chat about the effect of the media on public history. Is history now just another commodity? Can archives really be described as entertainment? How accurate is the new Suffragette film? And what’s the inside track on the Great British Bake Off?
