Culture with Rob Bound - How do you make a myth?: 

Myths are like history only they’re not real. But they’re reasonable, kind of. To answer the question “How do you make a myth?” we talk to classicist Natalie Haynes about their enduring appeal. We also ask art historian Christopher Dell where paintings would be without myth and discuss how a person becomes a myth with Peter York. Plus: Dr David Clarke, writer for the ‘Fortean Times’, tells us about the supernatural side of urban legends.
