Having been passed the information by a friend, Martin and Myra enjoyed a recent Radio 4 programme in which poet Mab Jones explored the concept of hiraeth in the poetry of Wales and further afield. It’s still available on BBC iPlayer Radio at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b083m307 until early January, and as an MP3 download at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04kk8mg.

Martin later discovered that one of the interviewees, Pamela Petro, has written an amusing blog series “Hiraeth for beginners”, the individual blogs of which are linked here.

And he found that the concept of hiraeth isn’t limited to Wales – see http://tinyurl.com/jxr48hs.
