The Reserve Rope – Feb 27, 2021

BBC Radio 4 Drama

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | February 27, 2021

The Matterhorn was conquered on 14th July 1865 by Edward Whymper. But four men died on the descent. Damian Lewis stars as Whymper, forever tormented by the tragedy. Jonathan Myerson’s drama speculates on what went wrong and why. The climbing team were roped together on the way down but at least two were inexperienced and – for reasons never fully explained – attached together with rope that was unsuitable for holding the weight of a man. A swift inquest was held and Whymper was exonerated. But some people never forgave him – especially the 8th Marquess of Queensbury, father to Douglas Hadow, one of the dead. This radio series originally aired in March, 2016.

Damian and Helen on BBC Radio 4 – Dec 15, 2017

Niccolo Machiavelli – The Prince

Tune in on iPlayer to hear Damian as Machiavelli and Helen as Defence on BBC Radio 4 Extra. The programme, originally broadcast in 2013, is one hour in length and there are currently 29 days left to listen.

A little about the audio play: Five hundred years after writing his most provocative political tract, Niccolo Machiavelli appears before an infernal court to appeal against the harsh treatment his works have received over time. Rather than being seen as a description of political cynicism and opportunism, he argues that “Machiavellian” should be a compliment and The Prince has in fact been an infallible guidebook followed closely by all successful leaders.
