Poetry? No Thanks

Episode 5 of 6

Ed joins a committee to help erect a statue to plucky wartime songbird 'Beryl Bassett'.

Episode 5: 'Poetry No Thanks'

Ed becomes involved in the work of a committee when he agrees to get involved in the erection of a statue on University Grounds to honour the plucky wartime songbird 'Beryl Bassett'. This means not only ploughing through hundreds of entries for a poetry competition to find a suitable ode to be read at the unveiling, but liaising with Beryl's son who has his eye on Antonia, a small gauge railway and a dubious family past.
