BBC Radio 3
Landscape With Figure
1 January 2004
Presented by Sean Street
Produced by Alan Hall
A documentary about World War Two's finest British poet, Keith Douglas, who was killed in action with the Sherwood Rangers in Normandy three days after the D-Day landings.
Presented by Sean Street, with contributions from Anne Stevenson, Desmond Graham, Stuart Hills, Tim Kendall, JC Hall and voices from the BBC Sound Archive.
"an unsentimental and challenging portrait and The padre who buried him spoke, as did poets, his biographer and people who knew him. In parallel, we received a first-rate analysis of his verse, how it changed after desert combat, loosening in structure, tightening its impact."
Gillian Reynolds, Daily Telegraph, 8 vi 2004
