Monaco resident Wendy Wood West records poem for the BBC

BBC Radio Scotland have recorded a collection of poems to mark the London Olympics 2012- The Written World.

A poem has been selected for each country participating in the games and each poem has been recorded by a person living in each of the countries, and where possible by poets of the respective countries. Monaco does not currently have a poet or at least not a well known one, so long term resident Wendy Wood West was asked if she would record the Poem for Monaco-The Olive Tree.

Each poem is accompanied by a brief interview with the person reading the poem, when they talk about the country and their intepretation of the Poem and why it is significant .
