Publisher's Summary

The series starts with illusionist Derren Brown helping Stephen decipher Magical Language; a programme about Capital Punishment (about how complex capital letters can be) as well as a celebration of Reading Aloud and a no-nonsense examination of Plain English, which ‘does what it says on the tin’ as well as telling the story of that very successful metaphor for plain EnglishGuests include Professor Stephen Pinker, Sooty, writer Philip Pullman, Professor John Mullan, and radio favourite Charlotte Green, with whom Stephen dances an immaculate tango.
