- Tony Harrison's "V" Alternative
Visualisation of Tony Harrison's poem "v.". v. is about the multiple meanings of the letter - victory, versus, verses, for example. Starting from a meditation in a Leeds' graveyard where the poet's parents' headstone has been defaced with grafitti, v. rises to a panoramic view of the divisions, antagonisms and aspirations within British society, and the poets own self. Includes archive footage of the miners' strike and football hooliganism.
