Hello everyone and welcome to a new post. This is a recording of an episode from 2001 of the BBC Radio 4 programme A Good Read.

The show has as a guest, Colin Dexter. The show, A Good Read, has a few guests on the show to talk of some new book releases. One of the books is a new anthology released in 2001 of the poems of AE Housman, one of Colin’s favourite poets.

Many of you will know AE Houseman from his poem, How Clear, How Lovely Bright which is quoted both in the Endeavour episode, Neverland  and the Morse episode The Remorseful Day. 

Firstly here is my video of Shaun Evans and John Thaw quoting part of the poem.

Now for Colin Dexter in BBC radio 4’s A Good Read.

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.
