    If you're teaching this, it should be available on iPlayer - might be useful revision.

    Thanks Grouch [​IMG]
    However, it is on in 15 mins (not available on iplayer) and after having just downlaoded Audacity- so that I can record it- my practise recording is pretty dreadful.
    Anyone help with ideas o0n how to do this? I notice it is on again on May 29th though.

    Liz

    Although the Amazon description says 'abridged', it's not* (though there are obviously a few directoral changes, as you get with any adaptation).
    * Or, at least, the identical-looking version I bought last year isn't

    It will be after the broadcast. Listening to it now - it's very good.

    You can get this on audibe.com. I think they may be doing a free trial at the moment - you just have to make sure you cancel before you start getting charged each month.
    I've used it in the past - there are only a couple of sections where they miss a few lines out. Very do-able and it means you can re-read the play with a class quite quickly.
     
  9. Quite enjoying it, though the West Midlands accents make it sound like The Archers and I am not hugely impressed by a rather underpowered Inspector... waiting for Eddy Grundy to make an appearance.

    Well, it is set in 'an industrial town in the North Midlands', so that sounds about right.
    I get very fed up with adaptations of the play that use Yorkshire accents, simply because Priestley was from Bradford!
