We must all be eternally grateful for the depth and breadth of the treasure trove of video and audio archive that is waiting to be unearthed on YouTube. Here is a remarkable recording of a 1979 BBC Manchester documentary about the friendship between Edward Thomas and Robert Frost, written by Andrew Motion and Anne Stevenson . Elected Friends tells of the three year friendship between the celebrated poets. John Frankyn-Robbins plays Robert Frost & Paul Webster plays Edward Thomas, and it is narrated by Geoffrey Banks. The producer, so far as we can find out, was Fraser Steel.
