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

20 March – Sir Edward Grey was Liberal MP for Berwick for over 30 years. He remains Britain’s longest serving Foreign Secretary and famously saw ‘the lamps going out’ in 1914. Mike will discuss his rise to power, his role in the ‘July crisis’ of 1914 and his subsequent career.
