Brideshead Revisited: The Reunion

I am much indebted to Margaret Perry at Ten Thousand Places for pointing out BBC's radio interview of the actors and director of Granada's 1981 mini-series of Brideshead Revisited, starring Anthony Andrews, Jeremy Irons, Diana Quick, Claire Bloom, Sir John Gielgud, Stephane Audran, and Sir Laurence Olivier.

It is pretty wonderful to hear Diana Quick talk about how Catholic the novel is.  (They got it, as opposed to those who made the new version, shame on them.)  Listen in and learn whether the 1981 cast may or may not have made this series the best adaptation of a novel ever simply by reading their lines from the novel.
