BBC Radio 3’s arts and ideas programme comes to Hay to record a special edition. Was Ralph Waldo Emerson right to say that a great person is always willing to be little? Rana Mitter and guests New York Times journalist David Brooks, novelist Azar Nafisi and historian Tom Holland discuss the concept of humility. Vice or underrated virtue?
