Programme D: Your Flesh Shall Be a Great Poem/Bound To/Anima Animus - T01229368879

Your Flesh Shall Be a Great Poem is a personal and moving tribute to Trey McIntyre's grandfather who died after years of dementia.

There are warnings beneath the humour in an exploration of how relationships can become dysfunctional when competing with social media.
