Once upon a time there were two brothers named
Grimm. Jacob and Wilhelm travelled the length and breadth of Germany collecting tales of wonder from the lips of peasants. Or is that a fairy tale too? Who were the real Grimms and how did they come to create the world's best known tales? And why have these been used and abused in Germany itself? Michael Rosen 's search for the truth behind the tales takes him to Kassel where he visits the Grimm museum and to the Braider
Grimm restaurant, where the waitress will tell you fairy stories whilst serving your Sleeping Beauty breakfast. Producer Mark Burman
