Melvin Bragg - 02

On her Culture Club this week, Charlotte Green welcomes broadcaster, author and parliamentarian Melvyn Bragg to Classic FM to talk about his beautifully written new novel, Now is the Time.

It's a thrilling fictional recreation of the biggest rebellion in English history – the so-called Peasants' Revolt, combining modern insight with historical authenticity.

Charlotte asks Lord Bragg about his motivation for setting the novel in the 14th century – an extraordinary period in English history – along with the classical music that has helped inspire creativity throughout his life.
