8.45 till 9.30pm actually:-)
I found the one with Harriet Walter almost unbearable to watch . I don't remember the original and who acted in it. I must have watched it. I watched them all.
Harriet was truly remarkable in her portrayal.
I didn't much enjoy that one either.
Comparing the new readings with the old ones is interesting.
Patricia Routleges ‘Lady of Letters’ with Imelda Staunton’s.
I have watched the whole series and it get even better.
I like her as an actress but found this one a bit boring.
Agree Rosie, couldn't take my eyes off her from beginning to end.
Question Author
Agree the Harriet Walter one made for very uncomfortable viewing. There's stiff upper lip and then there's burying your head in the sand.
Great! Much better timing. I have a feeling that 'Talking Heads' is what Bennett will be remembered for. Thanks for the reminder.
Did you know that he used to sit for hours, quietly, in Leeds Art Gallery recording how people actually talked to each other? (I may have been one of them!)
He is brilliant and just why he hasn't been 'knighted' is a mystery to me.
He's probably been offered it and turned it down.
Bennett will be remember for ‘The Madness of King George’ that won an Oscar and was nominated for a clutch of others.
And then ‘The History Boys’ another super film.
His diaries are always good too.
ladybirder Rosie said she found the one with Harriet Walters almost unbearable to watch.
...and 'The Lady in the Van', Gromit.
Barsel - yes I did find it almost unbearable to watch but it was indeed compelling and I did go on watching it. Although I'm not at all like that woman I could totally understand her and that's down to the superb writing. X
It's not just one thing, he's done many wonderful pieces of work. I spent an evening with him once at a theatre in Harrogate. He sat in a chair with a drink and just talked for about 2 hours. It felt like 5 minutes it went so quickly. He had/has a home in the Yorkshire Dales and I saw him walking nonchalantly up the road with his boyfriend one day, when I lived up there.
Rosie, yes, that's what I thought you meant:-))
Sorry, my misunderstanding. x
No need to apologise Barsel but thank you anyway.
Thank you for letting me know it was on. Ienjoyed the one at 9pm about mother and son very much, will look out for them again in the future.
