Karl Marx in London: Owen Jones on Marxism
1 November 2013 Last updated at 12:32 GMT
The teachings of Karl Marx have been back in the news with David Cameron accusing Ed Miliband of living in a Marxist universe after he announced a plan to freeze energy prices.
Giles Dilnot looked into the history of Karl Marx with the left-wing columnist Owen Jones, and asked if the thinker has any relevance to 21st century Britain.
He also heard from Dr Elizabeth Fraser, Fellow in Politics at Oxford University, as they looked at the thinker's life in London's Soho, and his grave in Highgate Cemetery.
This is the first in a Daily Politics series on political thinkers and their ideologies, which will run most Fridays in the coming months.
