Grimm, Grimmer...Fairy Tales

A strange start to Christmas Day,

BBC Radio 4, 6-7am this morning.

Archive on 4, BBC iPlayer, "What Big Teeth You Have..."

A very well researched and produced programme.

"Children's author Anthony McGowan untangles the surprising origins of the Grimm fairy tales and explores how the stories have been used and abused, bowdlerized, distorted for propaganda, given voice to the oppressed and were reborn as therapy for sick children, before finally coming back to us as endless playground for our imaginations, and a boundless resource for storytellers".
