‘It was never supposed to make that noise’

Sandy By The Sea 6- Mapping Portsmouth’s Tudor Past

August 24th, 2010

In this episode I speak to John Lippiett, Chief Executive of the Mary Rose Trust about the current "Mapping Portsmouth's Tudor Past" exhibition at the city's historic dockyard.

John shows me around a cartographer's paradise, tells me the stories behind the collection and why it is so important to the history of the city- as well as containing one of the earliest maps in Europe.

The exhibition is at the Mary Rose Museum, Portsmouth until October 17th 2010.

This programme was originally broadcast on Monday 23rd August 2010.

"Sandy By The Sea" is a King of the Buttons Production for Express FM.

This is the last show in this series.
