The Great War – An Elegy by Simon Armitage

It’s a year now since the BBC2 TV programme The Great War – an Elegy was first shown and lots of people have been asking whether it can still be seen.  The answer is yes!

It was a truly beautiful programme made by Zoe Silver and her team for BBC2.  A Vimeo version, which includes Simon’s poem for Edie – Sea Sketch – can be seen here.

If you want to see more about our making the Edie bit of the film it’s here.

With Simon’s permission I always end our ‘Edie’ talks by reading his poem. More about our talks here.
