The Lives of Harry Towers on BBC Radio Four Extra

January 5th, 2019

If you're interested in great radio drama and the colorful and interesting people who made it, give a listen to "The Lives of Harry Towers", a new three-hour miniseries on BBC Radio Four Extra. The full three hours can be streamed for the next month.
 
The show includes full versions of programs Towers created featuring an array of stars like Olivier, Welles, and many others in the 1940s and 50s, along with interviews and other material about his life and work.
 
Congrats to Dominic Delargy for his great work producing the show - I listened to the full three hours this morning as I was working around the apartment.
 
Now I finally know the story behind a couple of Towers-produced "Movie Playhouse" transcriptions I ran into a few years ago.  (You can find those here and here.)
