28. Spring

Broadcast on 23rd March 2010.
To celebrate the changing seasons I have put together a show about Spring, although my methodology is a little suspect since I have mainly gone through a stack of poetry records and looked for poems with the word Spring in the title.

Most of these items are from the following records:
Birds and Other Sounds of the Countryside Recorded and Produced by Eric Simms.
BBC Sound Effects No. 17
BBC Records, 1977
BBC 17

Victorian Poetry read by Max Adrian, Claire Bloom and Alan Howard.
Caedmon, 1971

the poetry of Blake read by Ralph Richardson.

plus a couple from:
Alec Guinness, A Personal Choice
RCA Victor, 1965
