William Morris died just over a hundred years ago.

Yet his work lives on in his much-loved designs and in his ideas about society.

Andrew Saint visits the places that played an important part in the life of this poet, designer, craftsman and socialist, and discusses Morris's inspirations with guests including biographer Fiona Maccarthy and Peter Cormack of the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow.

With reader David Timpson.
