Four stories drawn from across England, celebrating the power of words. Featuring the World War II letters sent to Gilbert, from his lover - the mysterious "G". Ninety-seven-year-old Maurice Rutherford is gaining an online following, with his poems reflecting on love and older age (among other things!) Plus, Mansfield's former town crier explains the importance of the role in medieval times. And poet Hollie McNish reflects on the confusion and embarrassment that can come from a difference in regional dialect.
Presented and produced by Becca Bryers.
