A Prisoner of Birth

A Prisoner of Birth

Author: Jeffrey Archer Narrator: Roger Allam Release Date: 01/03/2008

Danny Cartwright and Spencer Craig never should have met. One evening, Danny, an East End cockney who works as a garage mechanic, takes his fianceé up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. He crosses the path of Spencer Craig, a West End barrister posed to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation. A few hours later Danny is arrested for murder and later is sentenced to twenty-two years in prison, thanks to irrefutable testimony from Spencer, the prosecution's main witness. Danny spends the next few years in a high-security prison while Spencer Craig's career as a lawyer goes straight up. All the while Danny plans to escape and wreak his revenge. Thus begins Jeffrey Archer's poignant novel of deception, hatred and vengeance, in which only one of them can finally triumph while the other will spend the rest of his days in jail. But which one will triumph? This suspenseful novel takes the listener through so many twists and turns that no one will guess the ending, even the most ardent of Archer's many, many fans.

Antony And Cleopatra (BBC Radio Shakespeare)

Antony And Cleopatra (BBC Radio Shakespeare)

Author: William Shakespeare Narrator: Colin Tierney, David Harewood, Frances Barber, Roger Allam Release Date: 01/12/2004

BBC Radio has a unique heritage when it comes to Shakespeare. Since 1923, when the newly formed company broadcast its first full-length play, generations of actors and producers have honed and perfected the craft of making Shakespeare to be heard. In the acclaimed BBC Radio Shakespeare series, each play is introduced by Richard Eyre, former Director of the Royal National Theatre. Revitalised, original and comprehensive, this is Shakespeare for the new millennium. Antony and Cleopatra centres around the soldier and noble prince Mark Antony's enthralment with the Egyptian queen Cleopatra, and the tumultuous relationship which ensues and ultimately ends in tragedy. Frances Barber and David Harewood star in a towering tale of great love, political intrigue and tragedy.

Cabin Pressure: The Complete Series 1

Author: John Finnemore Narrator: Benedict Cumberbatch, John Finnemore, Roger Allam, Stephanie Cole Release Date: 01/09/2011

Cabin Pressure is set in the wing and a prayer world of a tiny, one-plane charter airline; staffed by two pilots, one on his way down, and one who was never up to start with.

Carolyn Knapp-Shappey, MJN Air's formidable boss, has employed two of the very cheapest pilots money can buy: Captain Martin Crieff, who's always wanted to fly and won't let a little thing like lack of ability stop him, and First Officer Douglas Richardson, smooth-voiced old sky god and eternal schemer. Passenger service is provided by the relentlessly cheery Arthur, proud inventor of both Surprising Rice and his own hat. Written by John Finnemore (John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme, The Now Show), Cabin Pressure stars Stephanie Cole as Carolyn, Benedict Cumberbatch as Martin, Roger Allam as Douglas and John Finnemore as Arthur. ‘The more I listen to John Finnemore's Cabin Pressure, the more I think what a stonking masterpiece it is.

Conversations from a Long Marriage: A BBC Radio 4 comedy drama

Author: Jan Etherington Narrator: Joanna Lumley, Roger Allam Release Date: 01/10/2020

All six episodes of the BBC radio comedy drama about a couple who have been married for over 40 years but are still passionate about life, love and each other Joanna Lumley and Roger Allam play a married couple who met in the Summer of Love and have stayed together ever since. Children of the Sixties, they are still free spirits, drawn together by their love for music and one another. We follow their conversations from the café to the kitchen table, taking in everyday chores, dealing with problems with long-held friendships and tackling their frustrations with each other. With warmth, wit and honesty, they talk about the indignities of ageing (he has a dodgy knee and is on statins, she resents her new, tri-focal glasses), their desire to still be seen as attractive and their fears and vulnerabilities around growing older. There’s jealousy and talk of affairs, confessions are made and long-held secrets are unearthed – but underlying it all is their enduring love for each other and their desire to keep the passion alive. Written by award-winning comedy writer and journalist Jan Etherington, and based on her own 35-year marriage, this gentle comedy will ring a bell with couples of all ages.

Conversations from a Long Marriage: Series 2: A BBC Radio 4 comedy drama

Author: Jan Etherington Narrator: Joanna Lumley, Roger Allam Release Date: 01/03/2021

The complete second series of the BBC radio comedy drama about a couple who have been married 'for ever', but are keeping the passion alive 'Sublimely funny, touching series... a work of supreme craftsmanship' Radio Times Joanna Lumley and Roger Allam return as the married couple who met in the Summer of Love and are still passionate about music, life - and each other. Once again, we listen in on their warm, witty 'conversations', which dance around topics big and small: from health scares and jealousy to disagreements about TV viewing and sourdough bread. There's laughter, bickering, banter - and some loving one-upmanship from both parties, as Roger gives Joanna a masterclass in dishwasher stacking, while Joanna instructs him on how to wave goodbye to departing guests. Approaching the end of a particularly turbulent year, Joanna makes a list of New Year's Resolutions - for Roger - and suggests their marriage needs a re-boot. 'Out the door?' is his response: but there's plenty of life left in this long, loving relationship, and many more discussions, questions and confessions yet to come... Created by award-winning writer and journalist Jan Etherington, and based on her own long marriage to Gavin Petrie (with whom she wrote the hit radio and TV series Second Thoughts and Faith in the Future), this sparkling comedy two-hander will resonate with anyone who's ever been in a couple. Starring Joanna Lumley and Roger Allam Produced and directed by Claire Jones A BBC Studios production
