Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

Content: Victorian morality has been described in various ways. Admirers look back with reverence to that era's emphasis on family values and duty to God and country, the absence of divorce, the devotion to liberal politics, the free market economy, and the spread of democratic institutions around the world. Detractors look back with less enthusiasm pointing most often to Victorian morality as a veneer covering a rather seamy society where all the human vices continued, they were just not talked about.
