This classic 12-part radio drama of the English Civil War begins with the victory of the New Model Army in 1647.
As master carpenter and soldier in god’s army, John Church says, “there’s never been an army like this one, to make all things new.”
Now the struggle begins for what kind of world they have won.
Episode one is available on iPlayer until 30 March.
