Thanks for flagging this. I will make a point of listening to them. I was in the library today and put a request in for both the February and March books. Having trawled around friends and family I find no one has either them!


Glad to hear the library has them!

What a good programme this was. Glad you mentioned it.


Didn't his childhood sound miserable?
I loved the point made at the end, that there is a memorial to him on every street, i.e. the pillar box!

Does anybody know if it's possible to buy a copy of Michael Symmons Roberts adaptation? I know the Barsetshire Chronicles inside out having studied them for my dissertation and this was the best adaptation that I have heard of The Warden, absolutely wonderful - Septimus Harding is one of my favourite characters ever.

I haven't got to listen to the programme about Trollope's life yet but for a time he dealt with postal complaints and travelled far and wide to visit people to deal with some complaints in person - he used to write his novels on the train whilst he was travelling.


He was remarkable!
Can't help you re. the adaptation, I'm afraid, but if I come across anything I'll post about it.
