Voices in Vision: Poetry on the Small Screen | 17-Jul-15

Poetry is all over the South Bank this summer. Following Southbank Centre's Poetry International, our neighbours at the BFI will be exploring the role of television in 20th century poetry throughout August. 

Popular poets WH Auden and John Betjeman made many TV appearances; the BFI will not only showcase the best in this short season but also a fascinating collection of TV moments where poets are seen discussing the work of another. Unusual bedfellows in this collection include Maya Angelou on Robert Burns and Craig Raine on Philip Larkin.  

Don't miss the special selection of  extracts from Six Centuries of Verse which features the diverse and radical voices of  The Liverpool Poets, Benjamin Zephaniah and Spike Milligan amongst many others.
