"Death in Leamington" by Sir John Betjemn

Kenneth Williams and Maggie Smith reading “Death in Leamington” by Sir John Betjeman. Seeing Maggie in this video reminds me of her role in the Harry Potter films. It's so fascinating to see how she's aged. How terribly unfortunate it is that Kenneth died when he did - I'd have loved to see him in films today as well. This is from an episode of Parkinson originally broadcast in February 1973. Betjeman is a fellow guest on the program. He was Poet Laureate from 1972 until his death.
