Richard Weston’s ‘The Burying Party’ featuring Matthew

Staite tells the fascinating story of Wilfred Owen’s

final year on earth, 100 years after his tragic death in

World War One.

war poet, beginning at his internment at Craiglockhart

Hospital leading to the landmark literary meeting with

Siegfried Sassoon, to the devastating Battle Of The Sambre.


This tremendous tale features the powerhouse on-screen
