Poem Poet of Fryslân can be read from the skies

Next Friday April 24 ‘Fryslân fan Boppen’ will be broadcasted on Omrop Fryslân TV containing the drone images of the islands so that the poem can be read from above. ‘Fryslân from above’ is broadcasted from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm and at 9:30 pm. Of course, the images can also be seen via ‘Utstjoering mist’ and via the Facebook page of the Dichter fan Fryslân project.
