The wrong Richard Burton

Dear Lord Melvyn Bragg, You shit head! I enjoy listening to your radio show "In our time." I was looking for a book about the history of the English language and I saw that you had witten one, so i ordered it (second hand at 1p).

However, I see that you have written a book about "The Life of Richard Burton". Why? I would have thought that a person of your learning would have written a book about Sir Richard Burton: the explorer and translatoe. You would rather write a book about a film actor rather than the person who translated the Kama Sutra. Why write about popular culture when you could learn about exotic things

Pull yourself together man!

Regards, Craig
