Giovanni’s Room will be repeated on Sunday from 8:00pm – 9:30pm UK time on BBC Radio 3. You can listen to it live online or afterwards for 7 days on the BBC site here. The program is available for download on our Audio page.
The Stage has it as one of this weekend’s radio choices:
Drama on 3: Giovanni’s Room Radio 3, Sunday 8pm
Adapted and directed by Neil Bartlett and with a cast that includes Damian Lewis, Derek Jacobi, John Lithgow and Greta Scacchi, James Baldwin’s novel was groundbreaking in terms of its sensitive portrayal of homosexuality.
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.
Black Sky Radio’s interview with Damian Lewis is now available here the Band Of Brothers Cast Interviews 2010/11 blog. There was great, insightful stuff about the audition process, filming the series, as well as funny stuff about the time he was given a “whore’s bath” and an embarrassing last day at boot-camp.
The comic is set for release on March 16th. Click here for the Amazon page. The film will be released on April 8th in the US.
