3 programmes for your listening plesure

25 Aug

I have to heartily recommend the following three poetry programmes to listen to.

The first two are both from the BBC.  In the first Poetry of the Forgotten People Greta Scacchi discusses the life and work of Aboriginal poet Oodgeroo Noonuccal, with friends and family of the poet.  In the second, Bards of Somalia, Rageh Omaar explores what Britain can learn from Somalia, a country where poetry is the main means of cultural communication.

Lastly, but by no means least is a Scottish Poetry Library podcast featuring readings from Kei Miller’s new collection A Light Song of Light. I have become utterly mesmerised by Miller’s reading and have listened to the podcast five times now, and shall be heading up to Word Power Books tomorrow to buy the book.

I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have.
