Radio 4's first Poet in Residence, Daljit Nagra, introduces his favourite music, poetry and prose.
Kicking things off with childhood memories of The Jam's That's Entertainment and a classic track from the Bollywood musical Sholay, Daljit continues with works by Shelley, Shakespeare, Salman Rushdie and Liz Berry. Writer Sunjeev Sahota reads from his own novel The Year of the Runaways and Daljit explains why an eccentric Anglo-Indian dictionary holds so much fascination for him.
