A drama-documentary about the 'Super Tramp' W. H. Davies, who became a famous poet at the start of the 20th Century. Will Davies is played by Ken Jones, who would go on to write a play for Scene the following year.

From the teacher's notes

"The aim of the programme is to encourage pupils to see poetry not as the interest of the cultivated few, but in this case as a lively, often moving record of the experiences of one man who lived as a teamp among the poorest people." - Scene teacher's notes spring 1975 p.13.
