Archive On 4: Dial-A-Poem

1/1

Saturday 29 June

8.00pm-9.00pm

BBC RADIO 4

Brian Patten, one of the original Liverpool poets, explores how radical, subversive and occasionally risqué poetry - rooted in the counter-culture of the late 1960s - became available to a mass audience at the end of a phone line for the first time as Dial-a-Poem changed the public face of poetry for generations.

Presenter/ Brian Patten, Producer/ Llinos Jones for Terrier Productions
