Ooh!

I suspect that probably anyone who really wants to watch a three and a half hour play based on Sutcliff's Arthurian epic, Sword at Sunset has already picked up the link from http://blueremembered.blogspot.co.uk/ or http://rosemarysutcliff.com/ but just in case you didn't (and so I've got the link)


I haven't watched it yet, but am looking forward to it!

Also, muchly amused by this review: "Of the two or three weddings I have been forcibly removed from, the most memorable was in Lewes. “How can you say you don’t like Rosemary Sutcliff?” I angrily demanded of the classicist groom, “You’re getting married in the very Sussex Downs that fired her imagination.” The desk sergeant who brought me morning tea in the cells agreed."

And while I'm at it, there is this!

It is quite a time commitment! I shall post a review when I have tackled it.

How often does new Sutcliff drama come along, after all! Even student drama...

I am disappointed in you. You were my model for spousal cruelty, and now I learn that you have gone soft!

(have to admit though that I have never succeeded in dragging Pp along to any form of theatre...)

I love the quote from that review. What other weddings has he been forcibly removed from? Is it always in defending the honor of some literary hero?

I was wondering the same!

I had no idea Youtube could handle content of that length. Wow!

Well, I finally got around to watching this - or trying to, anyway. Sadly, I found it unlistenable because the quality of the audio was terrible and there was a lot of background noise. Oh well.
