Kenneth Branagh and David Tennant on the art of Radio Drama
What makes radio drama special? Kenneth Branagh and David Tennant on why actors continue to come back to the medium.
Branagh and Tennant star in an eight-hour dramatisation of Life and Fate by Vasily Grossman. Thirteen episodes will be broadcast from 18 to 25 September on Radio 4. This epic masterpiece, centred around the bloody battle of Stalingrad, charts the fate of both a nation and a family in the turmoil of war. Completed in 1960, the novel was deemed so dangerous by the KGB that the book itself was arrested.
