The River Severn Poems

Play by Alex Jones.

A series of poems commissioned by BBC Radio 4 in the voice of the River Severn, voiced by Jane Lapotaire for three plays called - Plays Of The Severn, including - A magnificent Prospect Of The Works by Peter, Roberts, Just Another Tunnel by Christopher Denys, and A Little Bit o' Bacon Fat by Martyn Read in December 2000.

The plays charted the course of Britain's longest river through history and landscape; the voice of the river ran through each play.

The poems were also added to with a journey I undertook to trace the course of the river from its source to the sea.
