The Reunion: Brideshead Revisited

There is a British Radio show called "reunion" which, I assume, brings together lots of great acting partners, to discuss their work.  Recently they did a session with some of the remaining cast, directors and producers of the 1983 BBC Granada mini-series of Brideshead Revisited.  I found the interview fascinating, because it discussed how this was a little independant film company that worked like crazy to create what turned out to be one of the greatest adaptations of a book of all time (let alone one of the greatest TV series of all time)!

The interview includes Diana Quick, Claire Bloom, Anthony Andrews and Jeremy Irons.  Listen to the entire show here: The Reunion: Brideshead Revisited
