Melvyn Bragg discovers how turmoil in medieval England resulted in Magna Carta in 1215.

He charts the developments that culminated in a tense stand-off between King John and his barons in 1215 - the backdrop to the agreement of Magna Carta later that year.

With David Carpenter, Professor of Medieval History at King's College London; Nicholas Vincent, Professor of Medieval History at the University of East Anglia; Cressida Williams, Cathedral and City Archivist at Canterbury Cathedral; and Louise Wilkinson, Professor of Medieval History at Canterbury Christ Church University.

Producer: Thomas Morris.
