With Great Pleasure | Sonnet 18 (1971)

Sonnet 18

Extracts from poetry and prose, including Shakespeare's Sonnets 18 and 65. In 1944 General Hackett was badly wounded at the battle of Arnhem. He is now Principal of King's College, London, and in tonight's programme he tells some of his students about the poetry and prose which gave him particular pleasure and comfort during the four months in which he was nursed back to health and hidden by the Resistance in Holland.
