‘What passing bells for these who die as cattle?’ On 4 November 1918, barely a week before the Armistice, the Birkenhead poet Wilfred Owen was killed on the Western Front. 100 years on, internationally famous Liverpool poet Roger McGough (presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Poetry Please) remembers a lost generation. With poetry by Siegfried Sassoon, Robert Graves and of course Owen himself, plus music by Ravel and his wartime contemporaries, this should be a uniquely intimate commemoration of a tragedy whose scars – even a century later – have yet to fully heal.
