In Hope and Glory, Stuart goes in search of the places, people and events of the century we have just left behind that have shaped the look and character of modern Britain. From the death of Victoria to the demise of New Labour, he takes a single event from each decade of the 20th century that offers up a defining moment in our history and then goes in search of its legacy today.

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook and Stuart Maconie reading his own work. I would be interested to hear how he views some of those he references who have since fallen from grace as a result of various police enquiries and trials of past celebrities who have been sent down for sex offences committed during their time as BBC employees.
Still very much worth a listen!!!
