Lost In Translation is a panel show for Radio 2 in which host Tom Allen and his guest panellists dissect and analyse language, foreign cultures and everything in between that gets misunderstood with sometimes hilarious consequences.
The show demonstrates how language can not only bring us together but also create national outcry, and that though some words may be a term of endearment in some cultures, they can be a damning insult in others. From untranslatable words to seemingly nonsensical idioms to some of the greatest insults ever created, this show peels back the layers to reveal the secret quirks of communication.
