Episode 8: George Albert Smith and the Brighton School

Its a big episode this time, and it took me a long time to write. But here it is! As I said at the end of the episode, a huge thanks to Stephen Herbert and Luke McKernan, who's work has proved to be the single most referenced resource I have used in making the show so far.
