John has produced a DVD, “Shelley's Golden Years in Italy”, which is narrated by renowned poet Benjamin Zephaniah. Alongside clips from this, setting Shelley’s words to music, John talked about his time in Italy, with special reference to his humanist outlook and progressive politics.

The talk was well received and there was time afterwards for a discussion with the audience about Shelley’s life and works.
