Word of Mouth - BBC radio

Shetland is very long; it is almost fifty miles from my home to Lerwick, so we spend a lot of time in cars. I am always thankful for the radio, and this week there have been two very interesting discussions on Radio 4.

Word of Mouth is a series about words and the ways we use them, and the programme I listened to on Tuesday was about alcohol and words. It was a fascinating discussion, and from 16 minutes 30 on the listen now option, you can hear the singing part that really captured my attention.

Later on that night, there was a programme that talked about dyslexia, All in the Mind. During the programme there was a thought-provoking and moving section about a young boy's experiences of growing up with dyslexia. Have a listen to this; a few minutes of someone's life.
