Mary Beard on BBC 4.

Mary Beard was on BBC 4's Saturday Live this past weekend, and she was as entertaining as usual. Lots of interesting chit-chat and, of course, Beard's ruminations on the classics (and other things!).

The show lasts an hour, but it's quite worth listening to, even if it's just on in the background. There is some topical chat about drug addiction, and much more about the classics - her love of Latin, the enduring relevance of the the ancient world and some great tidbits about herself and her life.

Here is the link to the BBC Online player: Mary Beard on BBC 4.

Her blog online at the Times (called a Don's Life) is linked in my bloglist to the right of this post ----------->.
