New BBC Radio Adaptation

A new BBC radio serial of Janet Frame's autobiography has been in preparation recently.

Adapted by Anita Sullivan and directed by Karen Rose for Sweet Talk Productions, An Angel at My Table will air in two episodes of one hour each. The first broadcast will be on BBC Radio 4 on 13 January 2013.

The production stars Lorraine Ashbourne as the adult Janet Frame.

Hobbit-watchers will be interested to note that Lorraine Ashbourne's husband Andy Serkis is the actor who plays 'Gollum' in Peter Jackson's movie adaptations of JRR Tolkein's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
