The Culture Show: Mick Imlah's The Lost Leader

Posted by Expert Gadget Reviewer on Saturday, 6 December 2008

Last night's Culture Show on BBC2 featured an interesting - and quite lengthy - discussion of Mick Imlah's excellent second collection, The Lost Leader, including commentaries on, and readings of, the poems by Andrew Motion, James Fenton, and Mark Ford. It's well worth checking out and features a reading of 'London Scottish', a brilliant poem about the rugby teams sent to fight in 1914.

The full programme itself is here, and the feature starts at around 17 and half mins in. There's also readings of two poems from the collection on the Culture Show blog.
