Happy 100th birthday Roald Dahl

September 13th, 2016

Episode 606 of 632 episodes

We devote a program to the work of Roald Dahl, to mark 100 years since the birth of the writer who gave us some of the most loved children's books. We start at the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre in the English village of Great Missenden. Then we hear about Roald Dahl's macabre short stories for adults, and a new production by the National Theatre of Wales which stages some of Roald Dahl's most gruesome stories.
