Here is the trailer for "Georgie's Vision" - the first every documentary about the fascinating George Yeats!
We all know about Maud Gonne, but have you ever heard of George, aka Mrs. WB Yeats? In September 1917, Yeats proposed to 25-year-old Georgie Hyde-Lees and they were married in October of that year. In this programme we learn more about this extraordinary but self-effacing woman who was the catalyst for her husband’s greatest poetry, yet said “thank-you for leaving me out”. Contributors include Professor Margaret Mills Harper, official biographer, Ann Saddlemyer, grand-daughter Caitriona Yeats, Benedictine Monk Mark Patrick Hederman, poet John Montague, Olwen Fouere and Pat Laffan.
Readers : Olwen Fouere (George's voices), Pat Laffan as WB Yeats; Ingrid Craigie, David Heap, Victoria Mary Clarke
