We take our liberties for granted. They seem absolute and untouchable. But they are the result of a series of violent struggles fought over 800 years that, at times, have threatened to tear our society apart. On the frontline was a document originally inked on animal skin Distinguished constitutional historian David Starkey looks at the origins of the Great Charter, created in 1215 to check the abuses of King John - and how it nearly died at birth. He explores its subsequent deployment, its contribution to making everyone - even the monarch - subject to the rule of law, and how this quintessentially English document migrated to the North American colonies and eventually became the foundation of the US constitution.

Historian David Starkey presents this documentary exploring the role Britain's kings and queens have played in shaping the nation's music. In much the same way as artists from other fields, musicians were often reliant on royal houses for patronage - with the vast resources possessed by the rulers of the nation often necessary to fund or stage the most ambitious projects.

Magna Carta has become a universal symbol of individual freedom against the tyranny of the state, but with ever-tightening government control on our lives, is it time to resurrect it?

Historian David Starkey presents this documentary exploring the role Britain's kings and queens have played in shaping the nation's music. In much the same way as artists from other fields, musicians were often reliant on royal houses for patronage - with the vast resources possessed by the rulers of the nation often necessary to fund or stage the most ambitious projects. Starkey explores the influence of such patronage on the growth of music in Britain, tracing how even composers such as Purcell, Handel and Elgar were influenced by royal requirements, and the political significance of much of the resulting music.

Starkey - The Transponder Orchestra (2015)
Label: Alpha Pup | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 63:03 min | 144 mb
Bass, Trap, Dubstep

Starkey has been pushing his widescreen, astrologically-fixated take on grime, dubstep and hip-hop since the mid-00s, both through his own productions and the Seclusiasis and Slit Jockey labels that he co-owns (he also recently started a new label, NOREMIXES). His previous albums have been released on Planet Mu and Civil Music, but for The Transponder Orchestra he teams with West Coast label Alpha Pup. The album features some of Starkey’s grandest (and longest) tracks yet, contrasting gargantuan trance and grime leads with touching electro-pop moments.
