8:30 Window on the World

Editor David Cannadine takes us behind the scenes at the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography (ODNB) to examine why this late Victorian Institution with thousands upon thousands of detailed and vivid entries about the great and the good is still relevant in the internet age. We hear the processes by which candidates are selected for inclusion, how the style and content have changed over the years and why, in a period which tries to look beyond the praise of famous men and women, there is still a place for a publication that unashamedly does just that.
