Samuel West - BBC Poetry Season

Yesterday Sam took part in a discussion about sonnets on Night Waves (Radio 3) with host Philip Dodd, poet Jo Shapcott and Shakespeare specialist Helen Hackett. He also read a few sonnets. The episode will be available on iPlayer for up to a week after broadcast.
There is also a video on the BBC Poetry Season website featuring his narration of "Tintern Abbey" by William Wordsworth. Unfortunately this video is UK-only.

The BBC doesn't like us foreigners, it's obvious. And after trying several proxy servers without any success, I must confess that this antipathy is mutual now. :)

I tried several proxy servers too, and couldn't find one that would play the video :(

It's possible that BBC checks and blocks the proxy servers.
By the way "Pandaemonium" is a beautiful film about Samuel Coleridge (Linus Roache), William Wordsworth (John Hannah) and Robert Southey (Samuel West).
