Helen McCrory and Damian Lewis on BBC Radio 4

Niccolo Machiavelli – The Prince

Tune in on iPlayer to hear Damian as Machiavelli and Helen as Defence on BBC Radio 4 Extra. The programme, originally broadcast in 2013, is one hour in length and there are currently 29 days left to listen.

A little about the audio play: Five hundred years after writing his most provocative political tract, Niccolo Machiavelli appears before an infernal court to appeal against the harsh treatment his works have received over time. Rather than being seen as a description of political cynicism and opportunism, he argues that “Machiavellian” should be a compliment and The Prince has in fact been an infallible guidebook followed closely by all successful leaders.
