John Cooper Clarke - poet, storyteller, comic, is the central figure of the contemporary British revival of popular poetry. This program which mixes concert footage and interviews with interpreted and dramatised treatments of his work, shows him to be as engaging and extraordinary as the imagery of his poetry.
