Craig's poem is a revamp of Little Red Riding Hood - with added blood and guts - and set to music.
Recorded at the BBC Philharmonic studio at MediaCityUK in Salford, Craig takes centre stage as he recites his poem to an orchestral score played by the BBC Philharmonic. The result is a 40 minute musical story which will be broadcast during the BBC Radio 2 show from 8pm on Friday.
Craig, whose career began at the age of 12 when he won the Guardian Poetry Award, said: “It was nerve-racking for me. But for them it’s like shelling peas. The orchestra was so loud and they were really giving it some. It was like standing in front of a heavy metal band.”
