UK only - Michael Wood on Beowulf (BBC 4)

Subject: UK only - Michael Wood on Beowulf (BBC 4)
by Trotter on 2009/5/28 10:44:29

This is part of the BBC poetry season.

"Historian Michael Wood returns to his first great love, the Anglo-Saxon world, to reveal the origins of our literary heritage. Focusing on Beowulf and drawing on other Anglo-Saxon classics, he traces the birth of English poetry back to the Dark Ages.

Travelling across the British Isles from East Anglia to Scotland and with the help of Nobel prize-winning poet Seamus Heaney, actor Julian Glover, local historians and enthusiasts, he brings the story and language of this iconic poem to life."

Should be available on the BBC iPlayer service for the next 7 days as well, only for UK visitors though.
