Love, War and Trains
« on: May 01, 2013, 02:12:47 PM »
Link to BBC Radio 4 website

Another of those plays that didn't seem too promising (nahhh, I'm not into poetry, am I?) but then it sneaked up and grabbed me. I wasn't really listening and had other things to do but then all of a sudden I realised there was something more to this one.  This story was in the past but now and again Ian McMillan popped up with a few words of today....what was going on?

How much of this story was really true life I don't know. Perhaps I don't want to know. But I lived the story and all the emotions.

I'll have to Listen Again, after missing those first 20 minutes.

Nice words throughout. Very smartly executed.

Hi Albert, yes I must say I was a little unsure when it started but it painted a wonderful picture, from moments that grabbed your heart and etched on it the love of loves; and in the next managing to be deprecating of itself.  I found a real sense of the past, no texts, emails, tweets, just a pen, paper, envelope and stamp.  A joy.
