Sunday 16th November 2014 saw the broadcast of my BBC Radio 3 Sunday Feature, ‘Freud in Asia’.

The documentary looks at Freud’s relationships with psychoanalysts in India, Japan, and China, and the surprising uses to which Freud’s thought was put – helping to spark political, sexual, and spiritual revolutions.

The documentary is available on iPlayer here.
