English and German

Listen in pop-out player

At the Brighton Festival, Michael Rosen explores our linguistic links with Germany. Michael and his guests discuss our shared Anglo Saxon heritage, cultural influences from the Romantics to the Weimar Republic, and how the two languages relate to each other in the modern era. And we hear from other writers and artists having fun with words on stage in Brighton - oratory and story-telling are strong themes at this month-long festival.
