In this eight part series, Melvyn Bragg, explores the development of the English Language over the last 1500 years. The first four programmes explain how this insignificant German dialect has evolved into a global language now spoken and understood by more people than any other in the world. The remaining four programmes visit various countries around the world to show the differences in modern English. Written by

Engaging enough for 12 year olds to Senior citizens.
As a fairly disparate family we nonetheless found enough within each programme to keep us watching and waiting for the next gem of information. Whether it be the way a word in common use was pronounced or just the vast array of words available we were fascinated.
