that Made Britain to an audience on the Ormskirk Campus.   

In Hope
and Glory Stuart Maconie goes in search of the places, people and events that
have shaped modern Britain. Starting with the death of Queen Victoria, to the
Battle of the Somme and the General Strike, and on to the docking of the Empire
Windrush and Bobby Moore raising the Jules Rimet trophy, he chooses a defining
moment in our nation's story from each decade of the last century and explores
its legacy today.

Maconie is a best selling author, broadcaster and journalist and attended the
former Edge Hill College in the early 80s, studying on an English and Social
Science degree. Since graduating, has been deputy editor of NME, written three
other books, including Cider with Roadies, Pies and Prejudice and Adventures on
the High Teas. He currently co-presents BBC 6 Music's Radcliffe and Maconie
Show and The Freak Zone, has columns in the Daily Mirror and Country Life and
