Why Poetry Matters
Griff Rhys Jones and the BBC at Southend Poetry Group
Griff Rhys Jones and a film crew from the BBC came along to the Naval
& Military club to film the Southend Poetry group for a programme
called Why Poetry Matters
The programme on BBC Two will launch a Poetry Season across BBC TV and
Radio with a passionate plea about how verse has the power to move and
why everybody needs it.
Members of the group chatted
to Griff about poetry and what it means to them.
