The Word 02 Sep 2014

Verse, thoughts and rhyme about that most un-poetic of events, war. A wander into the war-torn fields of education as we discuss the ravages placed upon an already creaking system by an un-informed and probably barking mad ideologue. This weeks guest is Dick Skellington, academic and word-grazer, chatting with Peter Ball.


Ian Barker

Little did we all know that this would be one of the last times we heard the wonderful Dick Skellington who sadly passed away quite unexpectedly on Thursday September 18th 2014. He was such a lovely man - and so many people have expressed just this sentiment about him and more - such a multi-dimensional character, a great poet, superb actor, comedian and a published university intellectual too. We're much the poorer for him leaving us.
