Thank you, domino, for this.

I have listened to this all afternoon, just lovely to hear. I'm so pleased at the Rising poets being included - and was delighted to hear Roger McGough pronounce Pádraig Pearse's name correctly.

I could listen to Damien reading poetry all day, using any acent at all.

I just wish the BBC would put Poetry Please out on CD. Just the poems, they could do a years worth at once. Copyright, I suppose, although most of the poets have been dead for ages.

All thanks to Poetry Please for contacting me yesterday to inform us of the programme. They apologised for not contacting at the time but I am kicking myself for missing the broadcast as I've been keeping an eye on the schedules! 

Yes whimsy well done Damien first read Easter 1916 in the Poetry Please Yeats special, August 2014.

This is a beautiful programme.. not only for Damien's readings (Which are utterly magical and beguiling!) but for all the poems, the entire sentiment and for all the insights in between.

I particularly loved when Roger McGough said:

"T.S Eliot's poetry is known for being difficult to make any sense of, but in a way that doesn't matter if your experience of the poem stretches your mind. "  Just love that.

Has everybody had a chance to listen?

These are beautiful, almost unbearably moving poems.

I did listen to the whole programme once.  But as usual I was captivated by the voice more than anything and didn't really absorb the poems in and of themselves first time around.  I'm waiting for a quiet moment to listen again.
