Interesting educational resource

A most interesting resource crossed my way recently that you may find helpful. On a home education message board, someone posted about a BBC radio series called "
In Our Time."

A cursory glance at the archives, which are available for listening anytime, sparks lots of interest from me.

The history archive lists people such as Genghis Khan, The Great Exhibition, Catherine the Great.

The science archive, Archimedes, Microbiology, and Alexander von Humbolt.

The Diet of Worms, the Oxford Movement, Greyfriers & Blackfriers, and Venerable Bede are some of the people and events in the religion archive.

The culture archive features Chaucer, Don Quixote, The Aeneid, and The Encyclopedie.

And the philosophy archive offers topics like Virtue, Beauty, Imagination, and Sartre.

These topics mesh well with our pursuit of a classical education.
