Discovering the Sitwells

Writer and broadcaster William Sitwell, the great nephew of poet Edith Sitwell, discovers more about his family's literary heritage. His great aunt Edith is possibly best known for her poem Facade, which William is asked to perform at the Royal Festival Hall, accompanied by the orchestra of St Paul's Cathedral. In preparing for the performance he travels from Australia to South Africa, via Scarborough, to try to get under the artistic skin of the Sitwells.
