New series 1/7. Zeitgeist. Joe Oueenan , Pauline Black and Toby Young come to blows over one of the few German words to find a secure place in the English language - zeitgeist. Though adored by fashion writers and political columnists alike, not everyone believes that the spirit of the times can be easily addressed. And then there's the question of class. "If you used words like Zeitgeist where I grew up," says Oueenan, "they'd break your legs." Presented by Dominic Arkwright.
Producer Miles Warde Repeated on Sunday at 11pm Spoken word choices: page 121
