Welcome to this week's Hundred Years Ago Show. It's July 1922 and summer is in full swing: London sees a society wedding with the Prince of Wales as best man, and the best man in the Tour de France turns out to be a very unpopular winner. The Belgians get Rwanda and the IRA take Waterford. A sheriff is killed in West Virginia, an Ottoman eminence is assassinated in Georgia, and a Hollywood star is down to her gown...

Plus all the other headlines from Kentucky to Cameroon - and the sounds of the era from Nora Bayes to Paul Whiteman. Click above to listen.

The Hundred Years Ago Show began in the first few weeks of lockdown as an occasional feature on the audio edition of The Mark Steyn Show. It proved so popular that it's now a stand-alone show every Sunday at around this time. As with our audio adventures, video poetry and musical specials, we've created a special Hundred Years Ago home page in handy Netflix-style tile format to enable you to set your time machine for the precise week or month you're in the mood for. We also have a tile-format page for The Mark Steyn Show, lest you should miss it on your telly every Monday to Thursday in primetime.

The Hundred Years Ago Show is a special production of The Mark Steyn Club. As we always say, Club membership isn't for everyone, but, if you're interested, you can find more information here.
