Hear a good story lately?

My lovely friend Bill let me know this morning that BBC7 has recently started airing banned works in their uncensored glory.

They started last Saturday with Lady Chatterley's Lover--with the voice talents of Lia Williams, Robert Glenister, and Roger Allam--and which you can listen to part one here.

In the coming weeks, they'll be broadcasting: Madam Bovary (Sarah Smart, John Hurt, Conrad Nelson), Animal Farm (Bill Nighy), Fahrenheit 451 (Michael Pennington), A Clockwork Orange (Jason Hughes, John McArdle, Jack Davenport), Women in Love (Clare Holman, Stella Gonet, Douglas Hodge, Nicholas Farrell), and Brave New World (Anton Lesser).
