LSM graduates release Tennyson film

In celebration of the 2009 bicentenary of the birth of Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892) WAG Screen made a short, filmed dramatisation of his poem The Lady of Shalott to be shown at The Collection, Lincoln.

WAG Screen is a prolific Lincoln-based non-profit-making community group led by graduates Nick Loven and Chris Roberts.
