Michala transports us back to the world of 1920s Birmingham gangland this week, and if you’re a Peaky Blinders fan, some of the names in her newspaper article (from The Times, 28 April 1921) may be familiar…Then, not to be outdone, Brad unpicks the eye-opening headline ‘Man Aged 130 has son 4 And a Wife in Her Twenties’ (from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, 27 July 1919).

Then kick back and indulge in this episodes’ News In Briefs – one featuring a lecture on…Scottish love songs (there’s our nod to Valentine’s Day) and another highlighting the ingenuity of a 19th century Texan animal lover.
