Written and presented by Keith Bosley
"Of what use are we singers
what good we cuckoo-callers
if no fire spurts from our mouths
no brand from beneath our tongue
and no smoke after our words."

Keith Bosley, with the help of Senni Timonen from the Finnish Literature Society, looks at the tradition of Finnish folk poetry and the background to the Kalevala.
Poems read in English by Miriam Margolyes and John Rowe
Poems read in Finnish by Sirpa Rasanen and Erkki Toivanen
