Roger McGough returns with half an hour of pure poetry. With poems about teachers, moons, notable pauses, railway trips, and other journeys including poems by Edward Thomas and Carol Ann Duffy. Keen fell walker and poetry fan Stuart Maconie reads Scafell Pike by the Cumbrian poet, Norman Nicholson, and Roger finds out what a discobolus is in a strange, ranting verse by the painter poet Samuel Butler. The readers are Jonjo O'Neill, Alison McKenna and Peter Marinker.
