“I’ll dig with it.”

There were too many other talking heads in BBC NI’s Seamus Heaney: A Life in Pictures for my liking but, despite what it says on the programme page, you can make up your own mind via the BBC iPlayer. One redeeming feature was the use of archive clips, particularly in the creation of this montage of “Digging”. Enjoy.

    Superb.

    I remember this being part of our third year work at school, taught by Mr George Hanns at Coleraine Inst.

    No-one ever forgets a good teacher. Nor do you ever forget this work.

  • I thought Seamus would have been old enough to have closely observed peat cutting, breasting or digging. The ‘over-the-shoulder’ move would have been very messy 🙂
