Richard Blair, the adopted son of Eric Blair (George Orwell), reads a poem in honour of Orwell’s first wife, Eileen O’Shaughnessy, following a visit to her birthplace in South Shields, Tyneside. Blair was speaking at the 2015 AGM of the Orwell Society, of which he is patron. The poem You, You, You is by Jarrow-born Tom Kelly.
