BBC2 series: Exploring the Past: Protest with me talking about Peterloo

I'm down in the vaults of the National Archives for this BBC2 schools' series: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b04q12bj/exploring-the-past-protest

The first ten minutes is on the Peterloo Massacre. Matthew, a bright and politically passionate school student from Radcliffe, investigates the causes of the massacre. I'm showing him extracts from the Home Office disturbance papers.

It's available to watch on iplayer for the next three weeks.
