The heartwarming tale ...

... of a villainous publican and an albino vicar.

Arrrrr, I'm listening to a dramatisation of Daphne du Maurier's Jamaica Inn on BBC Radio 7. It's been years since I read that rollicking yarn of wrecking and multiple murder in 19th century Cornwall. You can hear the first part here (starting at 11 am). The next three parts play over the following days. If you want to listen, you'll have to be quick because the Beeb rotates its programs.

Now this is a dangerous link. I could spend hours listening to the BBC. I loved Rebecca as a kid. I must have read it a couple of times. I don't remember Jamaica Inn much. So you tell me why British radio and TV is so much better than in the US? No, on second thought it might be too humiliating to hear your opinion.

I'm a big fan of BBC radio. I'm probably going to get in trouble at work for listening to the arts, science and comedy programs while I'm dealing with all the boring paperwork.

ABC radio here has some interesting programs too, especially the Book Show, Science Show and Ockham's Razor.
