On the 75th anniversary of Virginia Woolf's death, the BBC have commissioned this stunning animation to accompany what is believed to be the only known surviving recording of Virginia Woolf's voice. 

The recording was taken from a BBC radio program dating from the 29th of April 1937 called 'Words Fail Me' of which only eight minutes of the original remain. The animation was inspired by the woodcuts created by Virginia Woolf's sister Vanessa bell for the Hogarth Press.
