David Parker - Laurie Lee

An Illustrated talk by local TV director, David Parker

Reflections on love, landscape, writing, poetry, childhood, music and much more from the voice of one of the great English writers of the last century.

In 1994, the year of his 80th birthday, Laurie Lee shared his memories of an ‘eventful’ early life in a series of interviews with the film maker David Parker. It was quite a coup, Laurie did not ‘do’ television! In the recordings he talked with sublime eloquence about his life in the Slad Valley, and the influence of the landscapes and memories of his childhood on his subsequent writing.

At this event David will introduce the recordings, and using extracts from them reveal what they tell us about one of England’s finest chroniclers of our times.
