Programmes about colour

Driving around Shetland on my journeys to schools across the islands, I always have the radio on. Radio 4 for news and analysis, Radio 3 for music. And this week Radio 4 had a very interesting half hour all about the naming of colour. 

A fascinating topic, colour excites and calms, stimulates and engages, and we love colour in our studio in Yell! So this programme was very interesting nd most especially because it shows why people can never agree about colour and what that has meant for language. Have a listen to the BBC programme (if you are not the UK you may not be able to listen because of licensing restrictions) for some insights about our wonderful world of colour. And if that is not enough for you, here is a link to more programmes on iPlayer Radio 4 all about colour. I can't wait to catch-up!
