On Friday the Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy came on to the programme to describe how life has changed since her appointment in May. She also read the first of a series of poems that she’s selected as part of a special anthology for Christmas. This is now the fifth of the poems she's reading in the run up to Christmas. It's called ‘Carol of the Brown King’ by Langston Hughes.
