You might already know that BBC Radio 4 has chosen Samuel Johnson for episode 6 of its Great Lives series, hosted by Matthew Parris. In this episode, 'Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, nominates Samuel Johnson, writer of the great dictionary. Dr Johnson's biographer, Peter Martin, joins the discussion.' It's already been on once, but there's a final chance to catch it this Friday at 11pm.
