Good News

Happily Radio 4 is doing something to redeem itself today – an all-day reading, dotted into the schedule at intervals, of that classic novel The Leopard by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. This is something of a Radio 4 New Year tradition now, and usually works very well (I particularly remember Andrew Scott's brilliant reading of Ulysses a few years back). The Leopard is being read, superbly, by the excellent Alex Jennings (who, a quarter of a century ago, performed my one foray into radio writing, a dramatic monologue that went out on Radio 3).

  1. Only caught the opening section but, yes, it is excellent and compelling.
