I asked the curator Colin Harrison to mention our part in it, but he did not have time.
Christopher Brown at least made mention of our poetry as part of the exhibition.
It was a great privilege to hear David Attenborough speak about someone he is passionate about.
He believes Lear has a very special place in our history and I believe him.
I am sharing my reply to Colin's e-mail this afternoon, which expresses my feelings on the morning pretty clearly.
I was delighted with the launch. I hope you were. What a great job you have done.
I felt that Christopher had at least mentioned poetry at the museum in passing.
I was able to connect with a number of journalists about it.
I am posting some photos I took at the launch, including yours. Feel free to download the pictures if you like any.
There was something very special about DA live.
When he said thank you on behalf of Lear, you could almost believe Lear was speaking through him.
I wish I had set my camera to video.
