Poet Helen Mort and Judith Palmer, Director of the Poetry Society look back at Carol Ann Duffy’s tenure and the particular demands placed on the holder of this prestigious royal appointment, whilst also considering the Laureate’s changing role in a society facing political turmoil. In new BBC2 series The Victorian House of Arts and Crafts, six crafters go back to Victorian times to live out William Morris’s utopia of the Arts and Crafts movement.

Embroider Niamh Wimperis and judge and mentor Keith Brymer Jones explain what they learnt from the process. Presenter: Kirsty Lang Producer: Sarah Johnson…read more
