🎧 GREAT VICTORIANS: QUEEN VICTORIA, CHARLES DICKENS, DAVID LIVINGSTONE

Recorded at Chalke Valley History Festival 2017.
Three distinguished authors of books for children, Kate Hubbard, Andrew Billen and Amanda Mitchison give an entertaining and informative introduction to historical figures. We hear about Victoria, just 11 when she realised her destiny was to become Queen; the gripping life of Charles Dickens which fed into his work; and the incredible story of David Livingstone who stopped at nothing to be the first white man to explore Africa.
