On December 18, 2007, PBS taped Wynton at Rose Hall reading William Butler Yeats’ The Wild Old Wicked Man.
PBS web site has just published the video from that reading.
The Poetry Foundation, undertook this project in order to expose a diverse audience to a broad spectrum of poetic voices, build an appreciation and an audience for poetry, and increase the presence of poets and poetry within the two most ubiquitous media in American popular culture–the Web and TV. In addition to presentation on this Web site, the videos will appear on local public television stations at unexpected moments during their broadcast schedules.
