Martin Freeman and Danny Dyer will be talking about their upcoming play The Dumb Waiter on BBC Radio 2 next Saturday January 19 at 8am UK Time.
If you were able to catch the re-run of the 1 and a half hour dramatisation of The Unfortunates today on BBC Radio 3, then that’s great. Being on BBC Radio means that anyone can listen, not just the lucky folks that are in the UK.
But if you weren’t able to then you can listen to it still:
In 2010, Martin starred in a dramatisation of “The Unfortunates” a novel by BS Johnson’s from the 1960s.
This dramatisation is an adaptation of BS Johnson’s ‘forgotten masterpiece’ in which a sports journalist’s memories of an old friend are triggered when he travels to a strange city to cover a football match.
Martin was joined today by several guests to celebrate and listen to The White Album at BBC Radio 6 music. The show was not live but we had 3 hours of exquisite music and interesting behind the scenes stories even from George Harrisons’ son.
Here are some photos from when they recorded the show:
