Chart positions

This show was 40th in the global folk chart.

The last in a three-part series written and produced for Resonance 104.4fm, in which Tamsin Rosewell looks at the work of visionary artist and poet, William Blake. Burning Bright examines the poem 'The Tyger' from Songs of Experience, most often the first work by William Blake heard by children, and the most often-remembered by adults. Tamsin looks at what the poem has inspired by its combination of image and text; she also looks at the unusual techniques developed by the artist in printing and colouring. She talks to Dr Martin Myrone, lead curator for art pre-1800 at Tate Britain, award-winning writer and Guardian columnist, S.F. Said, Musician and Radio Presenter, Kitty McFarlane and Tim Heath, Chair of the Blake Society to find out the extent to which this one poem has influenced the English imagination. Written and presented by Tamsin Rosewell, produced by Tim Jenkins for Resonance FM.
