Samuel Johnson: The Dictionary Man
On: BBC 4
Date: Monday 26th June 2006
Time: 21:00 to 22:00

Drama documentary telling the story of Samuel Johnson's creation of the first English dictionary, in an attic room just off Fleet Street in Georgian London. The depressive writer-for-hire with Tourette's syndrome did for the English language what Newton had done for the stars, classifying words, fixing their meaning and bringing order to the chaos of language. It took him nine years, but in the process an anonymous writer became a literary superstar.

Tells the extraordinary story of how a lone Fleet Street journalist with an obsessive-compulsive disorder spent nine years mapping the entire English language, systematically and comprehensively. Johnson was a one-man band, working in an extraordinary household alongside his dying opium-addicted wife, six clerks, a blind poetess, a drunken doctor, a black servant and a cat. In this unlikely environment, Johnson set up a word-factory which changed the use of written English forever. First published in 1755, Johnson's Dictionary remains one of the most innovative and influential books ever written.
