MEREDITH HOOPER'S ACCLAIMED PLAY 'KATHLEEN AND CON' ON R4
Kathleen and Con, by Meredith Hooper, stars Samuel West as Captain Scott and Emilia Fox as his wife, and will be aired in Radio 4's 'Afternoon Drama' slot, from 2.15-3.00.
The 45 minute play is based on the powerfully moving letters which Scott and Kathleen wrote to each other over a period of five years.
Poignantly, it is being broadcast in precisely the week - 100 years later - that the news broke upon the world of the deaths of Captain Scott and his four colleagues: Wilson, Bowers, Oates and Evans.
Catch her on the air this weekend too: Meredith Hooper will be talking about the drama on Radio 4 on Sat 2 Feb, as part of 'Saturday Live' (9.00 - 10.15).
