Chancellor speaks

BBC Radio Four's The Routes of English programme has a distinct University feel to it this Friday (October 15). New University Chancellor Melvyn Bragg will be discussing how English was spoken in his native Cumbria in the 10th century, with Professor Katie Wales of the School of English.

Professor Wales will put the development of Cumbrian into the context of the language map of the UK across a thousand years. The series sets out to describe some of the ways in which Britain's history, geography and peoples have shaped the way we speak through invasion and conquest. Radios around campus should be tuned in at 4pm.
