The Somme in Seven Poems
The Somme in Seven Poems is an animated anthology of war poems for BBC Arts and BBC iPlayer. The award winning SEVEN POEMS was part of the BBC Remembrance Season in the UK, marking one hundred years since the outbreak of World War One.
There were more poets and authors at the Battle of the Somme than in any other war. The poems are like having the best film directors alive today sending dispatches from the battlefront. They included English, Welsh and German writers.
The animation appears in a feature-length BBC documentary, War of Words – Soldier-Poets of the Somme narrated by Michael Sheen.
