Sonnets for Albert - BBC Radio 4

The poet Anthony Joseph has been writing a new collection that addresses a key relationship in his life. In this programme, Anthony explores ideas around fatherhood, masculinity, absence and loss, as he talks to other artists whose art has become a space for interrogating the memory of their father. We hear from fellow poet Raymond Antrobus, the singer Gregory Porter and the Trinidadian film-maker Mariel Brown.
