Melvyn Bragg joins Charlotte to discuss his new novel, Now is the Time.
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.
