For Valentine's week, the Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, explores the heady world of love poetry from first flush to final parting. She argues that love poems are the poems that continue to have the most profound and lasting impact on the general reader, and examines enduring images and themes across ages and cultures. Each of the five programmes in the series looks at a different stage in the development of a relationship and today's episode explores poems of loss and separation. Presented by Carol Ann Duffy. Produced by Emma Harding.
