But why did these documents suddenly spring up in the age of revolution, global exploration and high-seas warfare? What's their connection with war? And if Scotland should leave the UK, will England finally write one down? James is joined by historian Linda Colley to figure it out. Find Novara on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.

10:00am - 11:00am
[Repeated from Friday 8pm.] "Portrait of the Ringbahn" by George Kafka is a sonic, historic and personal exploration of the ringbahn, an orbital railway that runs around the centre of Berlin. In this programme, the sound of a real time journey on the train is interspersed with conversations between writers George Kafka and Fiona Shipwright as they attempt to walk the train’s 37-kilometre route. These are joined by the voices of Berliners old and new who offer recollections and speculations on the ringbahn’s place in their own lives and in the life of the city. This assemblage of sounds and voices produces a fragmented image of an endless train line that is “more than just a line”. The ringbahn is hard infrastructure and imaginary boundary; a rolling viewpoint and a city-scale clock; a social place of introspection, heartbreak, parties, commuting and more.
