David Walliams and Andrew Motion on Philip Larkin


Actor and comedian David Walliams is a great admirer of Philip Larkin's poetry.

To mark the 25-year anniversary of the poet's death he talks to former Poet Laureate Andrew Motion, who wrote a widely acclaimed biography of Larkin, about why he finds this poetry so appealing.

Here they discuss the four-line poem Administration.
