Melvyn Bragg on class: 'Snobbery is pathetic'

Help

Broadcaster Melvyn Bragg says people now define themselves from their interests and professions rather than identifying with class.

Lord Bragg set out to examine the connection between class and culture in a new three part television series.

Class and Culture will be Broadcast on Friday 24 February, BBC Two, 9pm.
