Live at Southbank Centre: Childhood

Frank Field MP, child psychologist Dickon Bevington and authors Meg Rosoff and Philip Ridley join Philip Dodd for a discussion about different aspects of childhood.

Frank Field MP, child psychologist Dickon Bevington and authors Meg Rosoff and Philip Ridley join Philip Dodd for a discussion about different aspects of childhood. What is childhood? What do we remember of it ? It can be a golden time or a time which scars us. How do we encourage a child's imagination to develop ?

Producer Neil Trevithick
