Note sull'episodio

When Henry Brougham, first Baron Brougham and Vaux, died in his villa in Cannes in May 1868 at the age of eighty-nine, he was well known for his many achievements in the fields of politics, law and education, and also as the man who put the Mediterranean town Cannes on the map. Rosemary Ashton discusses the origin of Cannes as a resort to a chance visit in 1834 by Lord Brougham.
