Islamic historian Yaqub Zaki takes us on a tour round the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery stopping to look at Roderick Dempster MacKenzie;s great 'State Entry into Delhi' painting and Rolinda Sharples' 'Stoppage of the Bank' amongst others. Then we go down Park Street to the Lord Mayors Chapel to hear about the incredibly wealthy (from slave plantations) Samuel Beckford who built his own abbey at Fonthill in Wiltshire which collapsed into rubble.
The State Entry into Delhi shows the Delhi Durbar of 1903 – a ceremonial procession to mark the occasion when King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra were declared Emperor and Empress of India. On a grand scale the image captures the procession of British officials and Indian Maharajas as they enter the Durbar grounds on elephants, passing the Jami Masjid or Friday Mosque.

Jill's grandfather Cmdr. Harold Goulding was in charge of COPP and SBS training on Hayling Island as well as being the most active RN officer in this theatre of operations in WW2. Sadly he died in 1945, just three months after the end of the war, and only now are we learning of the true extent of his exploits and valiant service thanks to Jill and her family and friends.

Bruce Williamson from Rail Future takes us through the decision last week for the government to back the HS2 high speed rail project
