Calling all "Poetry Please" Lovers | 10-Feb-09

Calling "Poetry Please" lovers!

BBCFOUR are making a documentary on the Radio 4 stalwart programme "Poetry Please" which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.

Have you uncovered a long-lost relative, win a true love, or settle an argument over "Poetry Please"? Are you a diehard fan, who knows all the producers' names by heart and requests a poem twice weekly? Perhaps "Poetry Please" forms part of your weekly routine in an unusual way ? do you listen to free verse while free running, sonnets while sailing, haikus while hairdressing?

If you have an anecdote or a touching tale to tell, we'd love to hear from you. Contact the programme?s researcher, Katie Greening at
