BBC Radio 4 is airing a new adaptation of Barnaby Rudge . . . which I didn't find out about until after it started. (Sorry!) I found this out via a BBC News article about lead actor Daniel Laurie, a young man with Down syndrome. Producer-director Jeremy Mortimer (who also did the recent Tale of Two Cities radio adaptation) has some interesting things to say about how casting Daniel made Barnaby realistic and relatable to modern audiences.
You can listen to the first episode on BBC iPlayer; it's up for four more days. The next episode airs Sunday, June 1.
