The Reunion BBC Radio 4 11:15 Sunday 16 April 2023 Sharpe

It was a Napoleonic war drama to be shot in the Crimean Peninsula. But little did the producers know that they would be sending the cast and crew to film in a rapidly disintegrating Soviet Union. Once in Crimea, the whole production faced near-starvation and danger around every corner as they set about creating one of Britain’s most successful and critically acclaimed 90s television programmes, Sharpe.

Our panel includes Sharpe’s author Bernard Cornwell, actor and author Julian Fellowes, then-assistant producer Stuart Sutherland, one of the “chosen men” Jason Salkey who played one of Sean Bean’s right hand men, Michael Cochrane who played Colonel Sir Henry Simmerson across the entire series, and Diana Perez who played Ramona.

But, sadly, not John Tams who played sharp-shooter Daniel Hagman, co-wrote the musical score and acted as script associate to Director Tom Clegg.
