  1. ‘I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it not possible you may be wrong’
    Oliver Cromwell, 1650
    Jacob Bronowski, 1975

    1. Yes, I found the whole sequence very moving including and particularly the Oliver Cromwell quote. It’s a shame that the BBC will not allow the sequence as a clip on YouTube. Some might say it was a little melodramatic but I still remember it word for word over 40 years later.
      Should be compulsory viewing for today’s politicians and commentators.
