Nought Happens Twice Thus, featuring Patrick Malahide as Thomas Hardy, will air at 11:15am to 12pm (UK time) on BBC Radio 4 Extra, Friday, March 22. It will be repeated at 9:15pm to 10pm on Friday and also 4:15am to 5am Saturday, March 23 (all UK time).
For non-UK residents, and those won’t be able to listen real-time, I think it will be on the Radio 4 extra website for about a week for anyone to listen to (link here).
Brief synopsis from the Radio 4 Extra page:
Drama, by Adam Thorpe. A production company visit Thomas Hardy’s Dorset home, Max Gate, to make a film of The Mayor of Casterbridge – but while the author is excited about the project, wife Florence is less than enthusiastic. Patrick Malahide, Sylvestra Le Touzel, Emma Woolliams and Scott Brooksbank star.
