Pete Postlethwaite reads from A E Housman’s A Shropshire Lad.

In May 2011 the BBC broadcast a programme of Pete Postlethwaite reading poems from A E Housman’s anthology A Shropshire Lad. Pete died early in 2011 however the reading had been recorded in the 1990’s. If you missed the programme or would like to hear it again just follow the links below to YouTube. Because YouTube has a 15 minute limit and the programme was longer than that it has been split into two parts.

Part one      Part two


Here are some links to videos of local interest. If you know of others please let us know.
