16 Gwendoline Street presents, John Keats Documentary

February 23, 2021, marked the 200th anniversary of the English Poet John Keats's death in Italy in 1821. I am going back to the early program's roots in poetry, with a documentary made and recorded on location on the Isle of Wight.

Shortly before his untimely death, he made two trips to the Island. Walking With Keats follows his route taken, where he stayed, observations made and poems written there.

The times of broadcast are 1230 UTC, 9510 kHz on Sunday the 7th and 14th of March.

The only other means of listening to this other than live, is through the stream at  

Friday 23.30 UTC, Saturday  20.30 UTC and 22.30, Sunday 12.30 & 20.30 and via 594 in northern Italy at 20.30 Saturday and 20.30 Sunday. The A.M. Italia stream is available at these times via
