Small-c conservatism. It's a very strong thing in Britain, and Anne McElvoy of The Economist (and self-described "Gymnast Germanophile" in her Twitter profile) does a marvellous job examining the history of British conservatism in the BBC Radio 4 series, British Conservatism: The Grand Tour.
Below is an audio clip teaser for the series' first program, about how "the guillotine kick-started British 'small c' conservatism.'" Episode guide here. Alternatively, here's a week's worth of episodes at a time: the first week's omnibus ("from the French Revolution to the beginnings of mass democracy") and the second ("from a riot in Birmingham in 1901 to the rise of Mrs Thatcher").
