Poetry on BBC 4; Owen Sheers on Wordsworth

This is the first of a series of half hour programmes about great poems, and this was so good I'm going to try to watch them all.
It explored the sonnet "On Westminster Bridge" , often known by its first line "Earth has not anything to show more fair" and looked at why a Lakeland poet should write such a lyrical poem about London, and put it in the context of Wordworths personal situation at the time.
Excellent!
