    This year we will be looking at the 18th Century. It won't be quite so much about kings and queens as the last two years, although it has its share of interesting monarchs. But there will also be the American War of Independence, with its Boston Tea Party and George Washington. There will be Wolfe taking Quebec, and of course the Frech Revolution, with people being murdered in the bath, and nice old ladies knitting while they watched the guillotine dispatching the nuisances. What about Napoleon and Nelson, their lives and loves? We will also look at Russia. They had their Peter the Great and Catherine the Great in our period. Then there was slavery and the lives of the ordinary people. We should find plenty to talk about then, but there will be lots of videos too. By the end of the year(next July) we will be able to claim this century as one we know and love.
