Betjeman at the BBC

One our current selections is the poetry of John Betjeman. Not only was he a much loved poet, with a very distinctive style, he was also a consummate broadcaster. In the 1960s and 1970s he put together numerous documentaries at the BBC. It was by chance I recently discovered a selection of these programmes are now available, free to view, on the BBC iPlayer. A wonderful resource to explore as a side project. I just wonder what Betjeman would have made of the iPlayer and in the internet?
