SONG OF THE NOBIRD 4:21 mins. In the poetry video The Song of the Nobird , the poet appears as gamesmaster directing two players based on Keat's "belle dame sans merci" and her knight at arms. The footage was shot on DVcam, around the fountains in Hyde Park near Lancaster Gate, and reworked on the computer using Adobe After Effects software. Colour is reduced to little more than black and white in keeping with the tone of the poem, but the players finally choose life, despite all the attractions of despair.
