About this Event:

BBC journalist Richard Hamilton recounts how he tracked down the last few remaining storytellers of the Marrakech Medina to record their tales. The city is at the heart of Morocco’s oral storytelling tradition, but it is a tradition that is dying in the face of competition from television, film and the Internet. Aware that this tradition was on the brink of extinction, Hamilton sought out the last remaining storytellers and has recounted their tales.

Hamilton has worked for the BBC World Service since 1998 including spells in Morocco, South Africa and Madagascar. He co-authored the Time Out Guide to Marrakech.
