Fry’s English Delight Series 8

Starts BBC Radio 4 11th August BBC Radio 4 9am

First in this series, Words Fail Me.  Or rather Stephen.  Can we ever match how we feel with how we express it?  Stephen asks John Lydon, formerly Rotten, about emotional language, and gets an emotional response.  Here, Stephen reacts truthfully to the need to record a trail….

…in later programmes he  discusses how we talk about the weather, lifts the curtain on some  secret language and explores bilingualism.  Well no, actually, he doesn’t.  People are always ‘exploring’ things on the radio.  Bloomin’  overused metaphor.

So good they aired it twice
