{ What's on this week }


BBC RADIO 4 BOOK OF THE WEEK: SHAKESPEARE'S LOCAL
Monday 17 to Friday 21 December
9.45am (rpt 12.30am) on BBC Radio 4
Pete Brown's history of pubs as seen through the story of
one remarkable London inn: the George in Southwark, said to
be the one-time local of Chaucer, Dickens and Shakespeare.
Read by Tony Robinson. The George Inn is one of the few
remaining galleried coaching inns, and lies a few minutes'
walk from the Thames; Shakespeare's Local takes us on a
literary pub crawl through the history of this pub, from its
regulars, the watermen, merchants, actors, craftsmen,
writers and coachdrivers, to the many incarnations of the
pub itself. It has moved from lawless Southwark tavern to
coaching inn, theatre pub to Victorian drinking den,
unfashionable boozer to tourist attraction.
