Liverpool Lives profiled on BBC Radio

Make sure you listen to Thinking Allowed on BBC Radio 4 at 4pm on Wednesday February 4, when Selina Todd will be talking about class in Liverpool since the 1950s with Prof Bev Skeggs of Goldsmiths College, University of London, and presenter Laurie Taylor. This follows the publication of Selina’s article,  ‘Affluence, Class and Crown Street’ – in the journal Contemporary British History. This looks at how life for Liverpool’s working-class changed in the 1950s and 1960s, with a rise in employment, the explosion of Merseybeat, and the growth of suburbia.
