Angelou on Burns, Wednesday, 22.00, BBC4

No archive drama this week, though there are certainly more to come, but this is just as interesting a piece of archive, we think. Er, if you ignore the fact it was shown last year, that is. To mark Burns Night it’s another outing for this documentary from 1996 where the acclaimed US writer Maya Angelou visited Ayrshire to reflect on Burns’ work and how it inspired hers, and all at a rather more convenient time than the original broadcast after Newsnight in the old Late Show slot.
