'Sounds like you are getting into the corridors of power': Rana Mitter in discussion with H&P Director Dr Lucy Delap, Chris Skidmore MP and Professor David Armitage about the critical importance of history in policy making. The discussion, on BBC Radio 3’s Free Thinking, was sparked by Armitage and Guldi's The History Manifesto - a ‘call to arms’ to historians to engage with policy makers and shapers.
