BBC Radio 3 – Private Passions

At 12.00pm on Sunday the 14th of November, I will be talking to Michael Berkeley on BBC Radio 3’s Private Passions. I hope you enjoy it!


In conversation with Michael Berkeley, Jamila Gavin reveals the shocking story, which inspired her to write her first book for children. Her books deal with serious themes: particularly slavery, both historic slavery and people-trafficking now. Reading them, you can forget that these are children’s books; but, she says, any experiences which children suffer should also be experiences they can read about.

Jamila Gavin’s playlist includes Handel’s Messiah, Tippett’s A Child of Our Time, Schubert, Brahms, Stockhausen – and her favourite Night Raga.
