A gay, equine, military, epistolary romance for the ages
What is this all about?
We are Robert Hudson and Marie Phillips. About eighteen months ago we started uncovering some pretty extraordinary letters at the British Museum, among other places. We wondered if anyone would be interested in them. Boy, were they ever. BBC Radio 4 were so interested they have dramatised them with Stephen Fry, Daniel Rigby and Tamsin Greig.
We were at the recordings with Stephen and Daniel, who were incredibly nice as well as being incredibly good. We were not at the recording with Tamsin for reasons of That Is Life, but in homage to her we asked the BBC to use intro music composed by her great grandfather Edvard.
