Childhood is a Foreign Country

Two acclaimed writers turn their focus on the confusion and complexity of childhood, both seeking to understand the actions of their parents that still resonate deeply in adulthood. Novelist and filmmaker Xiaolu Guo charts her journey from a tiny village in China to the UK, while Scottish poet Brian Johnstone reassesses his childhood following unexpected revelations after his parents’ deaths. Chaired by Rosemary Burnett.
