Title Britain's Fascist Thread, Episode 3 Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet BBC Radio4 Media type Radio Duration/Length/Size 28 minutes Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 5/03/21 Description Historian Camilla Schofield explores a century of British fascism.
From the formation of the British Fascisti in 1923, through the BUF, the National Front and the BNP, the history of fascism in Britain is, in a sense, an unbroken thread.
But if the politics – or anti-politics – has remained more-or-less consistent, with a lineage of hatreds, pseudo-science, failed leaders and tactics, the means by which fascism is calibrated and communicated in the 21st century has fundamentally changed.
