The Cruel Sea
Monday 25 February to Tuesday 26 February
BBC RADIO 4 EXTRA
The sound engineers, who won the award, were Caleb Knightly, Mike Etherden and Alison Craig. Starring Jonathan Coy and based on Monsarrat’s own naval career, it tells the story of the crew of a Navy war boat during the war in the Atlantic.
Judges of this category, Kevin Brew, Jon Hardy and Jane Thynne said this of the winner: “an astonishing effort, faithfully recreating in sound the physical and psychological horrors of naval warfare ... the near-silence where the protagonist learns of the death of his fiancée is as shocking as any of the battle scenes.”
