A Dish of Tea with Dr Johnson

A Dish of Tea with Dr JohnsonT0429582622
Meet Samuel Johnson - poet, essayist and compiler of the first English dictionary. This evening of anecdotes and witty conversation brings to life one of the most colourful figures of the eighteenth century: irritable, generous, depressive yet hilarious. And meet characters from his life, from biographer James Boswell and painter Joshua Reynolds, to the society hostess who was Johnson's final, unrequited, love.
Author James Boswell (with additional material by Russell Barr Ian Redford and Max Stafford-Clark)
