2: The Years of Exile
This second programme in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Byron's death describes his sojourn in Italy from 1816 to 1823. and his six months in Greece supporting the cause of Greek Independence until he died at Missolonghi on 19 April 1824.
Although the insurrection .failed, for 150 years Byron has been remembered throughout most European countries as a symbol of resistance against tyranny, and, next to Shakespeare, the most famous of English poets.
