Amy's (Radio) Choice - This Week's BBC Radio 4 Highlight

As I'm sure you know, BBC Radio 4, available to us here in America on the iPlayer free of charge (for the time being, at least), is a dependable source of terrific programming, particularly radio plays with great acting. Lots of the program(me)s have actors who have appeared in WHO. This week:

"Alone in Berlin," the story of German resistance in Berlin during WWII.  It stars Ron Cook, who was Mr. Magpie in "The Idiot's Lantern."

Cook is a personal favorite of mine.  Look for him in the brilliant Mike Leigh film "Topsy-Turvy," as well as Paul McGann's "Hornblower" and "Filth: The Mary Whitehouse Story," which we discussed in our review of "The Deadly Assassin" a few months ago.

BTW, found this cool site when I was looking for an image.  Great behind-the-scenes shots from the ep:

And I'll remind you closer to time, but you MUST watch "Downton Abbey," coming to your local PBS station in a slightly truncated form, in January of 2011.  Penelope Wilton, our favorite PM Harriet Jones, features along with some of my favorite actors ever.  More later...
