In Living Memory BBC R4
Chris Ledgard recalls the outbreak of the early 1950s which almost wiped out the country's entire rabbit population, to the consternation of animal lovers but to the relief of farmers desperate to protect their crops
2/4 Poll Tax Riot
Jolyon Jenkins recalls the Poll Tax demonstration of March 1990 which led to the worst rioting the UK had seen for over a hundred years. He asks why the political repercussions were so relatively minor in comparison to the scale of the violence.
3/4 Mossdale Caverns
Ray Kershaw recalls the 1967 tragedy at Mossdale Caverns, when six young potholers met their deaths when the underground cave flooded. The cavern became their grave and was permanently sealed off.
4/4 The 1974 Lions
Chris Ledgard recalls the controversial 1974 British Lions rugby tour to South Africa. Despite pressure from both the British and Irish governments and anti-apartheid campaigners led by Peter Hain, the tour went ahead and the Lions became the first international side of the century to win a series in South Africa. Contributors include Peter Hain, captain Willie John McBride and the great Welsh full back JPR Williams.
