Yesterday Emily, Jade and me finished recording a radio drama for the BBC. It is called ‘Archie Dobson’s War’ written by Rob John and produced by the lovely Marie Crook and Stuart Fyfe. It will be transmitted in January and it is a really moving story. I will let you know the transmission dates later. Marie and Stuart and everybody involved were lovely and they made us very welcome and comfortable. I met up with Stephanie Racine who played my aunt on this project, she played my mum on a previous drama for the BBC, called ‘Storm’ and Harry Jardine who played my cousin was also in the BBC production of ‘The world according to Garp’ which we recorded in November.
I spent a lot of time talking to Scott Joseph, who played my uncle, who does a lot of radio productions and he told me all sorts of interesting things and was really helpful about being a radio actor. Thank you to Laura Hyde for sorting all the arrangements.
