‘My Cousin Rachel’ Repeat


  • Parts 1 & 2 of My Cousin Rachel will be repeated on BBC Radio 4 Extra on April 14th and 15th. Click here on the BBC site for the schedule. The program is available for download on our Audio page.

  • Don’t miss your chance to see Damian Lewis in person – and reading poetry! – for the National Theatre platform Beyond Frankenstein: Josephine Hart presents Romantic Poetry.

    Friday: At the time of writing there are still tickets available for the Josephine Hart Poetry Hour at the National Theatre (6pm, £3.50 / £2.50), tying in with Frankenstein and going all Romantic on us. Don’t expect Benedict Cumberbatch or Jonny Lee Miller – they’re performing an hour later and probably have better things to do – but Dan Stevens, Damian Lewis and Harriet Walter are on hand to read. Can’t say fairer.

‘Number 10′ update + Fundraiser pics


  • Reminder: The 2nd episode of the Afternoon Play Number

    10 broadcasts on Monday from 2:15pm – 3:00pm and may be listened to live and later again at the BBC Radio 4 page. Damian plays the part of PM Simon Laity.

    A summary of Episode 2 from the BBC website:

    Written by Jonathan Myerson. A leaked consultation document has the PM suggesting the armed forces budget should

    be cut in half. The Chief of General Staff declares war on the PM.

    It’s a minority Tory government and they need Lid Dem support to get their Health Bill through – Whitman (LD

    Whip) wants imposed industry regulation, whilst the Tories want it to be voluntary.

    The good news is that they have just signed a huge armaments deal with Saudi Arabia- securing factories and jobs

    – which Hugo, the Deputy Prime Minister, did all the hard work on. But suddenly a journalist says that Hugo took a

    bribe while there – in the form of a prostitute….

    But obscuring all this is the news that the new Sheriff of Essex – controlling police and prisons – is cutting

    costs by getting convicted criminals to stand outside the Lakeside Thurrock wearing placards proclaiming their

    crime such as ‘Thief'”. She is determined to stick to it putting her in direct confrontation with the PM.

    A summary of Episode 3 from the BBC website:

    Written by Jonathan Myerson. The PM has recalled Hugo – his secret task is to open negotiations with the Lib

    Dems to form a permanent alliance. Hugo isn’t keen but….

    Meanwhile the Scottish Parliament is bringing in a ban on burqas and Number 10 wants the Prince of Wales to

    soften the blow by bringing Islam into his all-Faith Conference. But a Muslim millionaire announces he will pay all

    anti-burqa fines..

    And Nathan is proposing a universal DNA database..

    But everything goes up into the air when Princess Eleanor, seventeenth in line to the throne, goes missing,

    maybe kidnapped…. Is the Home Secretary to blame for cutting his bodyguarding bill? How furious is the Prince of

    Wales – just as they are asking him for a favour?
