Who was Sweet Fanny Adams? Why are circles vicious? And, what’s so bad about a white elephant?

Join Susie Dent, lexicographer extraordinaire, Queen of Countdown’s Dictionary Corner and star of Eight out of Ten Cats Does Countdown for a curious and exceedingly interesting adventure through the English language. She explores those words that have fallen out of usage, and those words now locked in the past that really should be revived.
