The death of Prince Albert 150 years ago inspired the creation of the home of the Proms - the Royal Albert Hall. Historians Kate Williams and Dan Cruickshank join Matthew Sweet to reassess the Prince Consort and his legacy "the Albertopolis". And cellist Matthew Barley is the third guest in a four-part Proms Plus series in which musicians from this year's Proms season introduce their favourite works of fiction and poetry. Susan Hitch hosts.
