Charles Causley on Poetry Please

RogerMTwo editions of Poetry Please on Radio 4 on 29th September and 6th October will be devoted to Charles Causley to mark the tenth year of his death.

With recordings of Charles Causley reading and introducing his poems from the Poetry Please archive, the programme will also include sung versions of some of his many singable poems by Jim Causley and Natalie Merchant and new recordings of favourite Causley poems by poets Simon Armitage and Charles Causley Trust Patron, Sir Andrew Motion. Excitingly, there will also be an uncollected Causley poem found by a listener to Poetry Please in his father’s wartime diary. We can’t wait!
