BBC Radio 4 Extra earlier this week rebroadcast a two-hour adaptation of Waugh’s 1938 novel Scoop. This was written by Jeremy Front who has also adapted for radio Decline and Fall (2016), Sword of Honour (2013) and Brideshead Revisited (2003). The Scoop dramatization was first broadcast in 2009. It features actors Rory Kinnear as William Boot, David Warner as Lord Copper and Fenella Woolgar as Julia Stitch. Tim McInnerney reads the part of Evelyn Waugh who acts as narrator. The program is broadcast in two episodes in the “Classic Serial” series. Both episodes are currently available and may be accessed worldwide on your computer or smart phone for the next 26 days over BBC iPlayer.
