Alan Johnson answers the question: what makes us human?

Jeremy Vine explores the most fundamental question of all: 'what makes us human?' with former Home Secretary Alan Johnson, in a major BBC Radio 2 series featuring some of the leading thinkers and writers of our time. This week Labour MP Alan Johnson - who originally wanted to be a rock star - will give us his thoughts on the very essence of humanity.

Produced in association with the New Statesman, this unmissable exploration of the most profound question of all - what makes us human? - will be live each week at lunchtime on BBC Radio 2, and available to listen to again on the Jeremy Vine Show website.
