Simon Parkin: A Prison of Luminaries

In 1940, the British government ordered the internment of all German refugees in a camp on the Isle of Man. Behind the barbed wire were large numbers of talented experts and artists, who soon transformed the camp into a centre of creative endeavour. Join Simon Parkin, author of the award-winning A Game of Birds and Wolves, as he introduces his riveting non-fiction book, The Island of Extraordinary Captives, chaired by fellow author Rodge Glass.
