Are Horoscopes Rubbish?

Poet Ian Mcmillan looks at horoscopes and the reason behind their endurance. Why are we still enraptured with the thought that our destiny is planned out in the heavens, even when nobody believes it? Ian takes a poetic look at our language and our culture, from Chaucer to Shakespeare, from Babylon to Sheffield, to find out how the skies tell us stories and inspire our dreams.
