I keep forgetting to listen - but I have seen a review of a new book by Amanda Vickery which sounds interesting
It's called "Behind Closed Doors-At Home in Georgian England"
I suspect it links to the series

Making History is a programme with some items of genealogical interest
for example, the latest edition includes the history of marriage and divorce in England and Scotland.

Making History is an excellent series presented by Vanessa Coleridge. The latest series seems to be leaning more towards Genealogy.
Interestingly there are three other very useful Genealogy programmes broadcast on BBC Radio at various times of the year, and they are
Tracing your Roots on Radio 4
Look Up your Genes, Radio Wales
Digging Up Your Roots, Radio Scotland
Something for everyone!

I listened to the whole series of A History of Private Life and I found it very interesting and it really was quite an eye-opener ;)
