Poems on the Underground was launched in 1986. The programme was the idea of American writer Judith Chernaik, who wanted to bring poetry to a wider audience
Poems are displayed on posters in 3,000 advertising spaces in train carriages across London, and are usually changed three times a year. They are selected by Judith Chernaik, together with poets Cicely Herbert and Gerard Benson
