Colin Morgan reads Louis MacNeice’s poetic testament of life in 1938, written against the turbulent backdrop of the Munich Agreement, the fall of Barcelona and Britain’s preparations for an inevitable war. Introduced by poet Colette Bryce and interwoven with archive news reports from the era.
Part of Radio 3’s 70th season, marking the anniversary of the creation of the Third Programme, Radio 3’s predecessor in 1946, where MacNeice worked as a producer and writer.
Produced by Emma Harding.
