Mike will examine the public and turbulent private lives of these three men in the context of key historical events:

27 March – Sir Charles Trevelyan was a Liberal MP from a similar aristocratic background to Sir Edward Grey who opposed his policies in 1914 and bravely campaigned for peace. Later he resigned from the first two Labour cabinets because they were ‘too right-wing’. Subsequently he devoted himself to his estate which he famously ‘gave away to the nation’ in 1941.
