Brilliant Performances and Productions

I listen to the Drama of the Week podcasts whenever there is a new one. The most recent one ‘Paradise Lost’ with Sir Ian Mc Kellen & Frances Barber, brilliantly adapted by Michael Symmons Roberts is truly spectacular to listen to. All the actors involved were outstanding and made John Milton’s epic poem understandable and enjoyable. I can't believe this is free to listen to, it is amazing. Thank you to the BBC for making this available to listen to.
