BBC Radio 3 has announced a broadcast next week to mark the 50th anniversary of Evelyn Waugh’s death on Easter Day in 1966 . This will be a 45 minute episode of their programme Free Thinking. Here are the details:
Matthew Sweet is joined by two writers who are long term admirers – Adam Mars-Jones and Bryony Lavery whose new stage adaptation of Brideshead Revisited opens later this month and by Waugh’s grandson and editor, Alexander Waugh.
The programme will be transmitted on 5 April 2016 at 22:00 UK time. It will be posted on the internet shortly thereafter and can be replayed on BBC iPlayer, including at points outside the UK.
