The history of the world is the history of people moving. For as long as we have been aware of pastures new, we have sought them – just as we have always fled fire, famine and flood. But this old and natural impulse has also provoked much tension. Why?

Robert Winder, Migration Museum Project trustee and author of Bloody Foreigners: the Story of Immigration to Britain and The Last Wolf: The Hidden Springs of Englishness, delivers Morley College’s Penny Lecture, exploring the place of migration in today’s Britain and whether the fear of it isn’t more unsettling than the thing itself.
