His radio play, When Louis Met George (2003), imagines MacNeice and George Orwell meeting in Broadcasting House during the Second World War. ‘Paul Farley takes up life’s slack tether and tautens it into poems that are rich in thought and memorable in expression, tuning into a cosmic white noise which, though it may lack meaning is never without significance’ (Patrick McGuinness)
The following recordings were made at the Louis MacNeice Centenary Celebration and Conference at Queen's University, Belfast in September 2007.
