The cultural commentator looks at the dangers of jargon.

Meades looks at how jargon is used to confuse us, and how it dominates so many areas, from the arts, to sport, from newspapers to the law. He even goes as far as to attack regional accents. He also compares it to slang, which does at least explain exactly what it is.

Jonathan Meades on Jargon is on BBC Four at 22.30.
