Unseen love letters written by Sir John Betjeman found

Love letters written by the former poet Laureate Sir John Betjeman, which were found under the bed of his long term acquaintance Margie Geddes, are going on show to the public.

The letters, which seem to suggest the pair were more than just friends, were donated to Tom Brown's School Museum in Oxfordshire.

Actor Robert Blyth read extracts from the correspondence for BBC Radio 4's World At One.
