The Penny Dreadfuls Present: Hereward the Wake

Duration:
45 minutes
First broadcast:
Wednesday 26 December 2012

by David Reed and Humphrey Ker

From the team who brought Radio 4 the story of Guy Fawkes and the French Revolution, The Penny Dreadfuls now turn their comic eye towards Hereward The Wake. Why has this Englishman responsible for leading the fight against the occupation of William The Conqueror, been so readily forgotten? The story didn't end when they ran out of embroidery cotton on the Bayeux Tapestry. Our mission is to make sure that from now on, you will know his name.

Producer...Julia McKenzie.
