Seamus Heaney: Five Fables

The legendary comedian Billy Connolly brings a combination of high and popular art to the gorgeous animations originally broadcast on the BBC. In this amazing reading experience you can read Seamus Heaney’s translation or Robert Henryson’s original Middle Scots and move seamlessly between the two versions.
