About this programme

Writer Blake Morrison introduces the British radio debut of Tony Harrison's controversial poem - a work that conveys Harrison's anger at discovering graffiti on his parents' grave and features very strong language throughout. The recording is followed by a discussion involving Melvyn Bragg, Simon Armitage, Julie Bindell and Gerald Howarth MP about the impact of the piece, which caused outrage when it was broadcast on Channel 4 in 1987.
