The Lake District of north-west England is a consummately beautiful land of rugged hills, mountains and lakes, with pretty towns and villages set in their folds and on their shores. The poet William Wordsworth was born, lived, worked and died in this exquisite corner of England. Born in the 18th century, Wordsworth revolutionized English poetry and had a profound effect on fellow poets, like Keats, Byron and Shelley.
This documentary is a biography of the poet Wordsworth, set against the background of the hills and lakes of the Lake District. Whilst looking at the superb scenery we hear the poetry of the great poet and some analysis of its significance.
