Laurie Lee, the Lost Recordings – David Parker
Thursday, 4th October 2018
Duration: 1hr 30mins
Reflections on love, landscape, childhood, poetry and music from one of the great English writers of the 20th Century.
In 1994, the year of his 80th birthday, Laurie Lee shared his memories of an ‘eventful’ early life in a series of interviews with the film maker David Parker. It was quite a coup as Laurie did not ‘do’ television! He talked with sublime eloquence about his life in the Slad Valley, and the influence of the landscapes and memories of his childhood on his subsequent writing. In this session David will introduce the recordings and show the 30-minute film he made with Laurie.
