from Chaucer to Yeats
An anthology in 26 programmes introduced oy two contemporary poets in mid-career, Anthony Thwalte and Peter Porter
There will be no attempt to make the series academic. authoritative or even comprehensive. The hosts will be enthusiastic and opinionated: some of their personal favourites will get more extensive treatment: some poets they don'much care for will be more summarily dismissed.
At the same time, this series is a serious attempt to give the listener a sense of the range and development of English poetry over 500 years.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
