I know The South Bank Show is an arts program but this will be the first time I’ve watched it in about 20 years.
The Mersey Sound: The South Bank Show
Sunday 07 October 2007
10:45pm – 11:45pm
40 years after the publication of influential poetry anthology The Mersey Sound, Melvyn Bragg considers its cultural impact, as contributing poets Roger McGough and Brian Patten reconvene to give a special reading of their work at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. They also give a tour of ‘their’ Liverpool, in which they revisit favourite haunts and reminisce about their encounters with Jimi Hendrix and Lennon and McCartney – and remember fellow poet and contributor, the late Adrian Henri.
