Samuel Pepys, Jon Savage, Dana Fouras and Russell Maliphant

Samuel Pepys: Plague, Fire, Revolution, is the largest ever exhibition about the famous 17th-century diarist which takes a look at the time in which Pepys lived, from the execution of Charles I through the rule of Cromwell to the reinstatement of the monarchy with Charles II, all happening alongside plague, the Great Fire and war. John Wilson talks to the two curators, Robert Blyth and Kristian Martin. Music historian Jon Savage discusses his new novel 1966: The Year The Decade Exploded.
