I love radio dramatizations
This is a dramatization of the story. I have neither read nor listened to the original story.
There are no people like the Brits for putting books to TV, radio, or other cinematic endeavor. They stay true to the author, unlike Hollywood folk who have the brass to think they can improve on the original. True to form, this cast is excellent! As always, the BBC has done an excellent job!
