Britain's Biggest Book Prize: A Village Decides (Again)

The Culture Show, 2011/2012 Episode 14 of 28

For tonight's half-hour Culture Show Special on the Man Booker Prize 2011, Tim Samuels visits the Scottish village of Comrie and asks the locals for their verdict on this year's Booker Prize shortlist.

Shortlisted authors Carol Birch, Stephen Kelman and AD Miller travel to Comrie to answer questions from some of their keenest readers; and Commonwealth authors Esi Edugyan and Patrick deWitt beam into the village for an internet Q&A with assembled villagers.

Once the books have been read and the reviews and scores digested, Comrie will decide which novel is their Booker winner.
