About This Event

Fairy tales are not just familiar stories told to children but are also a means of conveying dark truths about morality and behaviour to adults; there are similarities between stories shared in different cultures. Composer Kerry Andrew, author of Swansong, talks to Katherine Langrish, whose books include Seven Miles of Steel Thistles and a Troll Trilogy, about the cultural legacy of fairy tales and the lessons we can learn from them.

Edited version broadcast on BBC Radio 3 during tonight's interval.
