A Poet's Song

An exploration of the differences between poetry and song.
Paul Farley and Jo Shapcott try their hand at writing lyrics for two very different musicians in the contrasting shapes of rapper Doc Brown and pianist Jamie Cullum.
The programme follows the progress of these collaborations and explores what musicians and poets can learn from each other.
