Simon Armitage - Gawain and the Green Knight

Fascinating BBC programme about the translation that he did of the medieval poem. Following what is thought to be the route Sir Gawain took in his quest for the Green Knight.

I've recently read Armitage's translation of The Oddysey which I raced through because it was so captivating. Like the best reviews or programmes about books, listening him talk in the programme made me want to race to read his translation.
