Out Now: Atlas of the Unexpected

Unknown

‘Unexpected, haphazard, unimaginable – but ultimately accessible experiences for intrepid humans today – Atlas of the Unexpected is a voyage to places both infamous and unknown; a compendium of places odd and enchanting, ancient and modern, touched by the certainty of chance and the oft-haphazard nature of what passed for discovery in the golden age of exploration.

Whether it’s the savvy invention of Vaseline at an American oil rig, or the serendipitous journey of a stray goat that led to the fortuitous discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls, Atlas of the Unexpected travels to the world’s most astounding and bizarre discoveries unearthed on our planet.’

Atlas of the Unexpected by Travis Elborough with maps by Martin Brown (White Lion Publishing 2018)

‘Ranging from Jane Austen to Agatha Christie and to the Prince Regent via Billy Butlin and Brighton Rock, Travis Elborough explores our often masochistic love affair with the seaside.

Travis Elborough traces the development of the British seaside in order to examine how our ideas about health, wealth and happiness evolved. Our aspirations and snobbery, our attitudes to sex, our keen sense of fair play, our chequered relationship with national pride and our ability to laugh at ourselves have all been played out against a backdrop of stormy skies, pebbly beaches and sticks of rock.’

Event: On the Record with Garth Cartwright on 14 June, 6pm, Matters of Vinyl Importance, N1

Screen Shot 2018-06-07 at 08.19.12

‘It is now seventy years since Columbia records launched their long-playing record in the summer of 1948. This revolutionary innovation ushered in the era of vinyl as the format for the music that would soundtrack so many lives.

First published ten years ago when the iPod ruled supreme and a vinyl revival seemed an unlikely prospect Travis Elborough’s The Long-Player Goodbye was immediately acclaimed as a brilliant piece of popular history that explored how vinyl changed our world.

The book became the basis for the BBC4 documentary When Albums Ruled the World in which he also appeared.

In Going For A Song Garth Cartwright charts the secret history of the UK record shop, from the age of the wax cylinder to the days of dubstep and the resurgence of vinyl and covering the whole colourful story of UK record-buying, from market traders selling music-hall 78s to ravers demanding Detroit techno.’

Capital Chroniclers.

‘In the latest programme of the monthly series, Mishal Husain introduces dispatches from journalists and writers that reflect the range of contemporary life across the country. Andy Kershaw visits the most cluttered workbench he’s ever seen to discover how restoration work is going on a monument to British endeavour in speed on water; Jane Labous samples libraries in two counties to assess exactly what they have to offer; Adrian Goldberg indulges his sweet tooth among the burgeoning dessert shops of Birmingham; Ruth Alexander discovers how the town that’s trying to turn itself around – literally – is faring; and Travis Elborough discovers perestroika among sixty thousand tulips on the South Downs.’

Listen: BBC Radio 4’s Making History

Screen Shot 2018-01-02 at 19.28.05

Tom Holland is joined by Dr Alice Taylor from King’s College in London and the historian of pop culture, Travis Elborough.

Helen Castor charts the course of the Prague Spring, that period of liberalisation in Czechoslovakia brought in when Alexander Dubcek became leader in January 1968. She hears from those who were there and those who study that period now and asks whether people had any inkling what an extraordinary year it would be.

Alice Taylor introduces a new project which will celebrate the 700th anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath in 2020. She explains how fact and fiction were brought together to create the notion of a Scottish nation and a document that would heavily influence the Constitution of the United States.

French Journalist Agnes Poirier leafs through the pages of Our Island Story, the 1905 children’s book that some argue not only re-imagined English history but then shaped the world-view of some of our political leaders.

Fresh from the publication of his book of twentieth century diary extracts, Travis Elborough discusses if the diary is dead in the digital post-truth age.

And Iszi Lawrence enlists the help of the world wide web in her search for the origins of the expression “hair of the dog”.
