Poet and academic Paul Farley creates a modern version of Michael Drayton's Poly-Olbion, a 17th-century epic poem detailing the history and geography of each county of England and Wales. He visits the same locations mentioned in the original poem and discusses with local writers how they have changed between the 17th and 21st centuries.
