Ted Hughes Dreamtime

Synopsis
Ted Hughes was one of the major poets of his generation. His older brother Gerald Hughes wrote a memoir of their relationship called ‘Ted and I’. The two brothers were close all their lives. This DVD is a one hour film based on that book. In this film Gerald remembers their childhood, how their mother Edith nurtured Ted’s talents as a poet and how the countryside influenced him. The film looks also at Hughes schooldays. The film also includes contributions from Carol Hughes, Frieda Hughes and Vicky Watling, Hughes’ first cousin.
