Show Notes

Off the back of a nervy nil-nil draw between England and Scotland in Euro 2020, Englishman Charles and Scotsman Graham assess where we are with further re-openings for cultural venues and events following the decision not to re-open fully, as planned, on 21 June. Graham proposes that Ben Wheatley, the British director responsible for In A Field in England, High Rise and Rebecca, is way ahead of any other, as his latest film, In The Earth, opens. Amid the rise of woke revisionism, Charles suggests that we should instead appreciate the great work done in the name of British culture by the Blue Plaques Society.
