We shouldn’t just gawk at the misfortune and stupidity of others - we should try to learn lessons to save us from enduring the same pain. Economist and writer Tim Harford returns with a new season of Cautionary Tales introducing us to idiotic hijackers, murderous doctors and brazen art forgers - as well as heroes such as Martin Luther King Jr and Florence Nightingale.

This season includes the acting talents of Helena Bonham Carter (The Crown, Fight Club, Howard’s End) and Jeffrey Wright (Westworld, The Hunger Games, and the James Bond films).
