Matt's Talks


For those with a taste for tragedy, I present a 10 part Wagnerian epic. The Good Old Days, La Belle Epoche, the darkest era in British as well as Human history. The true story which gave Joseph Conrads 'Heart of Darkness' such resonance.

We begin in Germany, with the apocalypse, where Europeans first develop unequaled prowess in the art of war. Follow Cromwell as he makes England a Great Power, Wellington as he makes Britain The Only Power, then sail forth on steam-driven warships to watch the great non-European civilisations die in hellfire.
