The Chronicle - BOOK TWO (April to June)

Are you ready for an unforgettable adventure into the past? Then climb aboard and join Oscar Wilde in America amused at the sight of local gun slingers looting the house where outlaw Jesse James had been killed a few days earlier. Meet John Betjeman as he implores the BBC to engage the impoverished Dylan Thomas while Jane Austen demands the return of her unpublished novel. Austen Chamberlain rages at Hitler for sending a wreath emblazoned with the Swastika to be placed at the foot of the Cenotaph. And did you know that the first F.A. Cup Final took place at the Oval in 1882? You'll also encounter Alan Bennett, H.Rider Haggard, Henry VIII and many more and we'll all join J. Bruce Ismay as he climbs aboard the last lifeboat to leave the Titanic.
