BBC 2 Timeline - ‘The War Poets Violins’. 
(Broadcast, 9th November 2017.)

The programme featured Upper 6th pupil, Daniel Dalland playing the Robert Graves violin and reading an extract from ‘Anthem for Doomed Youth’ by Wilfred Owen.

Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon and Robert Graves all have links to Craiglockhart Hospital in Edinburgh. An Edinburgh violin maker has made three violins, from the wood of a tree that grows in the grounds of the hospital, in tribute to the trio.
