The Written World

There’s an interesting series on BBC Radio 4 this week which focuses on the written word and how it has shaped our intellectual history. It’s part of Melvyn Bragg’s In Our Time series, and the first programme, broadcast this morning, looks at the early history of writing.

One Response to The Written World

  1. I love Melvyn Bragg.

    He did an excellent documentary a while back on the history of the English language. Sheer brilliance.

    If you’re into fiction, his book Credo is one of the best novels I’ve ever read.
