Basil Bunting, English poet from the beautiful far northern English county of Northumberland, reads his poetry. Introduction and commentary on Bunting by actor Patrick MacNee.

Bunting was the last in the generation of Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot and W. B., Yeats, all of whom he knew well. Here he is seen sitting before a coal fire in a local pub, walking the moors of his beloved Northumberland, wandering through a medieval town, reflecting on the world around him and, most importantly, reciting his poetry. For as he says, "Poetry lies dead on the page until it is heard." Bunting recites from his long poem "Briggflats" and other of his works, including "What the Chairman Told Tom".
