Barry the Brummy builder as Tim Van Eyken. That's interesting casting.

I listened to it last night. Unfortunately the reception on my radio was slightly patchy. However I did enjoy it.

It's on 'Listen Again' until next Saturday (I'm recording it at the moment). To hear it again, click here. You'll need RealPlayer to hear the broadcast.

It's on the iPlayer. where I just listened to it. It's not a patch on the dramatisation of the Michael Morpurgo novel at the National Theatre (being . . . ahem . . . a Smooth Operations production) and you can't see the puppets, but it was OK.

I have to agree with Ms Easby - having read the book to my stepson, I thought the production was rather flat, despite the stellar cast and the musical contribution. That said, I'm still glad I recorded it for him.
Stand to, Bonny Lads was the only song I hadn't heard before (either on CBS's Great War material or from Lark Rise), and I'd also be interested to know more about it.

Blimey, just Googled the title, and the only hit was Keith's post above! That's quick/spooky.

Isn't that what I just said?

The stage production was brilliant whereas the uninspired and flat direction of the wireless adaptation had the verve of a schools radio drama and had me drifting off into What Anna Sewell Did in The Crimea and What Shall I Make For Tea.

This didn't happen at the Olivier production. But then, as I remarked, you couldn't see the Handspring puppets on t'wireless . . .

If you add "John Tams" to the search you get references to
"Sharpe's Challenge".
The programmes often only contain fragments of a song or just the melody.
