  1. I had listened to this way back and it is a very good adaptation. Having read the book, watched the movie, I still very much liked this version.

  2. The version broadcast on BBC7 is actually longer than the original BBC transmission and CD release. The director took the opportunity to put back in some of the dialogue that he had been forced to omit originally for time reasons.

  3. I’m listening to this play on Radio 4 Extra in 2020 and it’s really enthralling. The funny thing is that it doesn’t sound like a radio play, but more like the soundtrack from a film. The background music and sound effects are so atmospheric. Last episode tomorrow……..
