Abstract

Poem appears in: No News: 90 Poets Reflect on a Unique BBC Newscast / By: Paul Munden (Editor), Alvin Pang (Editor), Shane Strange (Editor)


On 18 April, 1930, at 8.45pm, the BBC announced: 'There is no news.' Piano music played for the rest of the 15-minute bulletin.

So the story goes.

90 poets from across the world reflect on a this marker of a time before the 24-hour news cycle, before the ubiquity of news and information that seems to haunt us through our daily lives. Through this anthology there are poems that capture that moment of nothing but piano music making up an evening news bulletin, poems that contrast this with today's news, and personal stories grounded in the intervening years.
