Roger McGough returns with a new series of your poetry requests, including work by Bertolt Brecht, Rudyard Kipling and Kate Scott. There's something of a food-related theme to the edition, with William Carlos Williams' evocative poem describing the chilled plums he's raided from the fridge. Kipling's poem 'Arithmetic on the Frontier' weighs a British soldier's life against that of his adversaries, and his own officers. The readers are Jon Strickland and Phyllida Nash.

Producer: Mark Smalley.
