Sir John Betjeman

Episode 1 of 6

James Walton quizzes Sebastian Faulks, John Walsh, Sir Andrew Motion and Sue Limb in the literary panel show. From January 2012.

James Walton hosts another series of the book-based panel show. This episode's Author of the Week is former poet laureate, Sir John Betjeman.

Sebastian Faulks is joined by children's author, Sue Limb, and John Walsh is joined by Sir Andrew Motion, a previous poet laureate himself, to solve more literary challenges, based on Betjeman's life and work, as posed to them by James Walton.

The teams are also asked to imagine what Betjeman might have written about were he alive today, and still poet laureate.
